Great location but very very crowded. Very well organised and the crowds are well managed, but be patient.

Really well thought out and a excellent way to explore nature. The train ride is amazing, and we wondered as we walked through the forest what the shreiks of delight were about. Chap in the cable car language knowledge vety impressive. All the staff were very friendly.

When the weather is great, this is a great day. With an unlimited pass ticket, you can use each of the attractions as many times as you want, but really, probably once is all you need. The Cableway & Skyway are similar & give a great view from the air. The floor on the Skyway in the central section turns... More

We got the unlimited pass - went on all attractions and did a few short walks - unless you're really into nature etc half a day here is ideal. GO early to avoid queues and annoying brats!

This is a well run operation and apart from the stinking ladies and gents tolets it's clean and tidy, with staff who are friendly and helpful. I was so tired I was happy to pay 14$ to be brought up to the center with the steepest train in the world.

17.9.14 Purchased a unlimited ride ticked that was worth it even though we went on each ride once! Each ride had members of scenic world on there to give out information on the views that we were looking at as well as answering any questions anyone had. Safety was a priority and getting on and off the rides was easy... More

This is a great place to go to mix up the usual lookouts you will visit with something a bit different. We went mid week and the queues weren't too bad. Make sure you wear suitable shoes as you will most likely do a bit of walking also. We paid the $35 for the unlimited pass and started with the... More
