I really enjoyed my time at Scenic World, the views are breathtaking and the rides definitely provide a fun and interesting way to check out the scenery. We went on a Tuesday (out of school holidays) so assumed that it would be quiet... definitely not! But that's at no fault of Scenic World, just happened to be a busy day... More

We had family staying from England who wanted to see the Blue Mountains and they were not disappointed. The whole experience was unbelievable and words cannot fully express this attraction. The Scenic Railway was fantastic and our visitors were fascinated with the story of how the ride came into being. The views were breath taking. The two cable car rides... More

We visited this attraction on a Sunday while holidaying in Katoomba - five of us ages 4 - 66. We spent most of the day here & saw everything we wanted to see. Queues were anything up to 30 minutes. All of us enjoyed the attraction & our 4 year old especially enjoyed the rainforest board walk. The views are... More

They offer lots to see and do. I found the courage to ride the Skyrail and walked the boardwalk which was most enjoyable. Adequate eats and drinks and staff switched on and very helpful.

Wonderful few hours at scenic world. Well worth the money. If you do this make enough time free to take all the rides and do the walks. I am aware it is only one little part of the Blue Mountains but the views seen here are amazing. It is tourist orientated but that's the way it is. If you don't... More

Probably one of the best days out that I have ever had and excellent value for money. The views that we got to see were awesome, and my favourite part of the day was the walk through the Rain Forest - it really felt like getting away from it all. Highly recommended.

It's so disappointing that you now must buy the whole package of 3 rides!?! I went there from Sydney with my girlfriend and we were told that they no longer sold individual rides! We only wanted to do the scenic railway, as there are other things we did whilst we were there for the day; eg Chocolate factory, enjoy lunch... More

Did this as part of a trip to Katoomba and it was good fun, it saves your legs from having to walk up and down a load of stairs. It costs $35 for the full trip and the railway is great fun getting up to 52degrees from verticle. We did have to contend with large tour groups and especially Chinese... More

Obviously a tourist attraction for international visitors but not too bad for Sydney locals as well. We did the 3 rides which provided great views of the valley and the board walk in the valley base was good. There was every imaginable soft toy animal, key rings, etc for sale in the centre & photos of your scenic railway trip... More
