A location so unique the ‘afterlife’ have come back to use it as a playground. Early explorers refer to it as “a place where no human being should venture”, and man & nature battle here for supremacy. « less

While visiting friends in Hope, one of our excursions took us to Hell's Gate on the Fraser River. Prices were in the upper range, but there are frequent coupons in local papers and guide books. The tram, made in Switzerland, drops about 500 ft right down the cliff and over the river. At the base are gift shops, a very... More

We had a buy one get one free coupon. I love that once you pay once for a season you have a seasons pass! We went twice so far this year and my kids love running around on the bridge and we are considering going for the pumpkin drop

Overpriced for what you get. Drive down the highway to the Old Alexandra Bridge... It's free and during the salmon runs you can watch the fishermen setting out their nets. Hells Gate would do well if they would cut the tram price in half... They would get more visitors down to the village for their overpriced souvenirs and snacks.

For many years, we've always just driven past. Finally, we stopped to check it out. The tram ride was good and smooth, and the operators are very knowledgeable. The trams also go up and down frequently, so you are never 'stuck' at either end. The price may be relatively high for the ride (almost $100 for a family with 2... More

Hell's Gate was neat to go to- I'd recommend trying to go at a time when the salmon are spawning but even off peak, this was a beautiful place to go- reasonably priced to go to take the airtram. Interesting little museum and video to watch, lovely place for a snack, enjoy the view, etc...

I passed by Hell's gate about 30 years ago without seeing it, so this time around, I decide to have a look. To be honest, I expected more...... Parking is on site and also across the highway with a walking bridge to cross over.The entry fee is $ 21/adult. The cashier explained everything to us very well and the student... More

Accident on the Coqu so we went the long way. Fascinating tram ride with lots of education. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer.

We did this more for nostalgic reasons because we wanted our kids to experience what we had done as kids, but when we got there we were shocked at the price. In the end we decided to do it and we were glad. There is fun stuff to do down below and even just the history of the place is... More

Family of 3 ride and eat for $100 or so (price of one adult admission to Disneyworld). Food in restaurant was excellent and prices were reasonable.
