  • My fav part was the vr ride, it was super cool. When you are at the top of the tower you can get a beanbag for free to chill.  more »
  • Had a great time. This is the second time I came first time I chickened out of the swing and second time I went on it after some liquid courage (wine 😉) Staff members was very friendly and helpful  more »
  • Really cool interior. The lift was a nice touch with the flashing lights. We loved the swing, an experience we won’t forget. We really liked the bar area with the view. The photos we purchased were really good, although I wouldn’t recommend purchasing the video. Fun experience overall
  • Quick and free ferry ride across from central station. Fantastic 360 views across Amsterdam. Staff were very friendly, the initial journey and light show in the lift is great. Great cake and drinks in the cafe. Reasonable prices for the location. Lots of interesting things to do up there. Even the toilets have a great view! Unfortunately the swings were closed due to windy weather. Make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. Highly recommended.
