The view of the island was spectacular. We chose to do this as a port adventure on our Disney Cruise. The place could have been cleaner but the staff was very friendly and it was clear they were repainting and trying to improve. The view of the island was great and the ride was long enough to get pictures with... More

I have visited the Skyride previous to my recent visit and enjoyed my time. They have changed Paradise Point completely gotten rid of the trails and wonderful lookout for a restaurant and bar. You are basically paying to go to a restaurant and pay more when your up there. It's not worth the view, and they are obviously only in... More

So, start by saying it wasn't worth the price. The views from the top are awesome, but the ride up is stupid. We had 9 large adults crammed into a tram and you couldn't move. Once at the top, the views are amazing. We shared a fish taco and had drinks - decent food but certainly not worth making a... More

The tram ride was great. The restaurant was awful and the food was hardly edible. Took over an hour before it was communicated that our food was coming out. The only plus was the drinks & the view They were tasty and the views were amazing. The manager is rude and lacks customer service.

Wednesday night they have live music and dancing. Food is good and reasonably priced. The views in St. Thomas are some of the best I have ever seen no matter where you go.

.....I am not the thrill seeker, but I went on this tram to please my daughter, so maybe my review will be a bit biased. First off it is not worth $21 to ride that tram up to the restaurant. Luckily we were with my mom who lives on St. John and had her local ID. She purchased all of... More

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.

Buy your tickets on our cruise ship if possible - it will save you a few dollars. Beautiful view of St Thomas Harbor - easy walking distance of cruise dock. Nice souvenir shops at top.
