Took the tram up to paradise point on Wednesday night, got a light dinner, a bushwhacker, and danced to the wonderful sounds of a local band. It was a great night!!!!

If you are staying on the island, take the tram right at 5:00pm on Wednesday for $5. After 5 until close it is $5 but at 5pm exact you will be able to see the gorgeous sunset as you ride to the top. Must do for all couples! It is beautiful! (They will let you have your own car if... More

Ok, you're in St. Thomas, this cost $20.00 per person. Great ride up, nice people, great, NO Extremely great view. A few shops, pass on, stop at the bar, have a Bushwacker and life will be good. Worth the $ and the trip.

This was the fourth time my husband and I had been to St. Thomas, and we had never taken the Skyride to Paradise Point. I'm so glad that this trip we took the time to do so. It is a bit pricey at $22 per person, but it's vacation after all. And I'm one of those who thinks you cannot... More

Ok, so I know I am in the minority about this attraction. The Tramway Ride IS VERY EXPENSIVE! $44 for my husband and me. HOWEVER, the view is second to none! Also, there is a great restaurant/bar at the top and have I mentioned the view??? I actually think this view is better than the view at Mountain Top which... More

This was a place I wanted to go when we arrived in St. Thomas. While it is a bit pricey, I feel that it's still a must see/do. The view once you get to the top is simply amazing. There are a few shops when you get to the top and a good place for food and drinks, but that... More

$22 for a 5 minutes ride each way is a rip off. $10 each would be around the right price. The brochure we read said 14 minutes. If we had known it was 5 mins we would never have purchased the tickets. When we got to the top there were a few shops selling exactly what was for sale down... More

This was included as part of an excursion from our cruise ship, NCL Getaway, and certainly gives a great view over the cruise ships below. We only discovered that we were entitled to a complimentary drink as part of our package when we were on our way back down so don't forget to check this out. Gift shops, bars and... More

$21/person for a 5 minute ride to the top of a hill that only gives you views of the bay below - you can't see anything else. We has similar views from our unit at Marriott Frenchman's cove (granted not from quite the same height) so this was a complete bust. Seriously, save your money and do something else -... More

The tram ride is a must whenever I visit St. Thomas. The view from the top is worth the butterflies I have while on the tram. They have been improving the viewing areas each time I visit. I sit on the open air balcony restaurant at the top and enjoy a nice lunch while soaking in the absolutely gorgeous view... More
