Melbourne's troubled observation wheel is expected to turn again on Saturday after it shut down just weeks after reopening.
A software problem caused the Melbourne Star to close on Friday.
Technicians are now conducting final tests on the wheel and it is expected to reopen by 10am (AEDT) on Saturday, but it could even be open as early as Friday night.
Chris Kelly from the Melbourne Star Management Group said the wheel would be open for the Australia Day long weekend.
"Since opening on December 23 last year, Melbourne Star has welcomed in excess of 40,000 guests and we apologise sincerely for any inconveniences caused to our guests today," Mr Kelly said in a statement.
The 120-metre high Melbourne Star initially closed in January 2009 when a three-day heatwave caused the brace and supports to buckle and crack only a month after it opened.
Mr Kelly insisted in December the wheel was not a rebuild of the troubled former wheel, but a completely new wheel.
Just days after it reopened, one of the big wheel's 21 cabins was taken out of service while Victoria's workplace safety authority investigated a safety complaint.
