The Skyride is right in town close to the cruise pier. The ride up to Paradise Point is excellent with many photo opportunities of the town below, the bay, and the cruise ships. At the top there are shop and a place to get food. They offer free Wifi. Be sure to bring your camera

The Skyride up is fun and the SUNSET view is great. Enjoy the good cocktails before going elsewhere for dinner since the food at top is just ok. But a fun ride, lovely view & drinks!

The view is absolutely stunning and the ride is fun. Had lunch at the top and the food was OK. (Nothing spectacular) and the service was very slow. (but the server was very nice). GET A COUPON from your hotel. The coupon our concierge gave us made it $5 per person. Definitely worth it for $5 --- not sure I... More

I was scared to take the skyride up the mountain, but, didn't want to let my family down. Boy, am I glad I conquered my fears! Lovely view from the top (it was a spectacular day weather wise). We had a drink at the restaurant and used their free wifi, was so glad to connect! There was a woman with... More

Way over priced and don't get much for what you paid for. Yes it has some beautiful views, but you don't even go to the top of the mountain. And once you're up there all it is is over priced souvenir shops and a restaurant. I wouldn't recommend.

The approximate seven minute tram ride affords a nice view of St Thomas as you ascend to the top. The $21 per person roundtrip ride is a bit pricey for what you get but there was a long line waiting for the six cars when we returned. Views from the top are great and made it worthwhile. There are several... More

The view from the top is nice but the ride itself isn't very exciting. But I guess they wanted it that way so kids and older people could go on it. The ride seemed over just as it was getting interesting. There is a restaurant and some trinket shops on top but the real attraction are the views, especially of... More

It was a great view going up to see the downtown St. Thomas. We went up to the top, got off and the restaurant stay there until the cruise ships leave. The restaurant not overpriced. it also had live entertainment. I also had a live bird show also.

Had a few hours to spare so we took the US$21 each ride up the mountain, the trip takes 7 mins and the view from the top is fantastic, well worth it! Not too much to do from the top, the usual shops and cafe's and that's about all!!
