Great View

We actually drove up to Paradise Point. There are couple of bars and you can sit down to drink and look at the view of the port and downtown.

Cheap and simple ride to the top gives you incredible views over the valley and bay. Great in the evening to watch the sunset. Once you arrive there is a smattering of shops along with a bar/cafe and a live band. We had some nachos and enjoyed the Caribbean atmosphere. Nachos were nothing special but the views are! Don't forget... More

Visiting St. Thomas on a cruise ship, we bought excursion tickets onboard, which actually saved us a dollar or two. We arrived about 9:30am and were on the next gondola to the top. The ride up is smooth and enjoyable. At the top are tremendous photo opportunities of the ships in the harbor. We took the time to have a... More

Was a long wait on stairs which is good if want to take it slow. With 6 ships in Port it was packed. People were friendly. Area including bathrooms were clean. Restaurant had excellent service and food. I had fish tacos. Yum. View was amazing. They do pack you in the cable cars but short ride. Def worth doing once.... More

We took a short 7 minute ride up and had ample time once at the top to walk around at our leisure, take awesome photo's, sample drinks and browse in the gift shops before taking another short 7 minute ride down...I highly recommend this for some incredible views!

We arrived by cruise ship and was able to walk from the port to the entrance. The line was long to enter onto the Skyride, we waited on a flight of stairs. Before entering the Skyride they take a quick photo that you can purchase once at the top. The ride up and down provides a beautiful view. At the... More

This was basically a filler activity just to have done something on this island. I was not wanting to do any shopping and had no need to make my way to a distant beach. There was no wait at 11 am and the ride and destination did offer a fantastic view. The station at the top was certainly no paradise... More

We thought it would be fun to ride the skyride up the mountain and get an awesome view. The ride lasts less than 10 minutes and is not cheap. What's funny is that when we got to the top, we found that we could have driven up there. Oh, well! Once you are the top, there are souvenir shops, a... More
