It is just a tram over the canyon. Nice view going down, but nothing extraordinary. It is actually pricey about $22 per person and even at 58 for the special. 2 adults 2 youth at $58.00 Several interesting exhibits and spots to take pictures. Food is pricey and not that good It is not an awesome place, but you can... More

An amazing trip over this gorgeous canyon. It is a pity that the ride in the cable car only lasts a few minutes.The suspension bridge gives you quite a view on the powerful currents of the Fraser river. The café was a disappointment though: mediocre food at best. My salmon chowder had way too much pepper in it and the... More

Me and my husband really had a blast going to this place. My favorite was the bridge. It was so windy and you can see the strong currents from the river when you look down. The air tram is not as exciting as the bridge but I still enjoyed it. Overall, it was a memorable trip for us.

What a naturally rugged cliff and gate way. The landscape was something to behold, truly. I could have sat with a book and stayed there for hours, but we only had one hour for lunch and some photos, not long enough, but we had over 600km to travel that day! The AirTram (gondola) was smooth and the driver was informative... More

We expected mmore for $22 per person, The tram itself is impressive but Hell's Gate isn't that spectacular as proclaimed on the posters. On the other side of the river you are overflooded with tourist junk and overpriced food. Disapponting!

Nice enough for an afternoon outing. A bit pricey, but a nice drive up and back. A short tram ride down to the river. Interesting that you start out in one mountain range and land in another. Food was expensive and IMHO uninspired. Souvenirs were a bit pricey. Displays were interesting.

Beware this place; we were trapped down at the bottom with quite a few other families, of an early evening. The staff had no clue as to why the cable cars weren't working, and the young man in charge simply walked away from us up the Hill. When we tried to get our money back, having been transported by the... More

We routinely bring our visitors here - love it every time! The entry fee gives you the option of getting a yearly pass (at no extra charge!). The tram operator gave us a history lesson on the area and explained what we were looking at when there were questions about the salmon runs. We had ice cream after really tasty... More

The tram was pretty cool and when you get down to the bottom there is lots to do especially if you have kids.
