We recently visited St. Thomas for a day while cruising. We had been there many times and wanted to do something we had not done before. We decided on the skyride and quite honestly wasn't expecting much. Wow! is all I can say. The views were spectacular to say the least. As I told my sister, it really didn't amount... More

Worst service ever. Cold food. Manager said oh the heat lamps must be off and then did nothing. Save your money and spend it somewhere on the island that appreciates a customer. To bad a negative review is not allowed.

Take this cable car ride to the top of Paradise Point for the most spectacular views in the Caribbean. Well organised trip with Carnival cruise line, no big queues and when you get to the top plenty of small shops including bar facilities. This is a must if you visit St. Thomas.

Good times had by all. Short 5min ride to the top. At the top, live music, a few small shops, good food and good drinks $3-5 a drink, 10-20 for entries. AMAZING View at sunset! 5 kids ages 4 to 12 all loved it as did grandma(who is deathly afraid of heights too). Well worth it casual touristy fun.

I think this is one of those things to do once and it's a nice spot to spend a couple hours. I've been up several times and while the thrill is gone the location and ride is nice. I guess it depends on what you like. It's not scary at all unless maybe you have extreme fear of heights. It's... More

The place is a little bit expensive but the amazing views makes it out for it. From here you can get amazing views of the cruise port and Charlotte Amalie. Also you can see nearby islands on a clear sky.

We were in port on RCI and wanted something quick and this was good, took about an hour to ride up take photos and ride down. Nothing much at the top unless you want some drinks. People were nice.

The ride is about 7 mins long and the view is amazing once you get there, but if you have a car and you are driving around the island, you will get close to that high elsewhere. So after you have taken photos for 5 mins, all that is left is a few overpriced gift shops and a casual bar/restaurant.... More

This was on our to-do list during our Disney cruise of the Eastern Caribbean. I had heard about the Skyride to Paradise Point and read about it also. Once we were docked we headed through a small shopping plaza and across the street to the entrance. The building itself was easy find and noticeable from several areas of the port... More
