It does not matter what age you are everyone will love it, and something for everybody, fitness doesn't come in to it at all. If you are up there do it all so much fun.

Lovely , amazing views of the blue mountains and the 3 sisters ! Kids enjoyed the scenic railway and sky rail ! Very long waiting times and a very expensive day I would say it is a little over rated and over price for what you get !

We ended up going to scenic world on the off chance, it was a bit misty that day but we were pleasantly surprised. I would recommend coming here only on a weekday, we went on a Wednesday and it was bliss - no queuing in line and could go on the cable cars/train straight away. Stunning views and the place...

Loved the skywalk, the view was obviously amazing, we were really early in the morning so no queues - it was quite fast tho, would have been happy for it to go a bit slower! The long walk through the forestry was wkd too, I like trees! The incline rail was fun too- all the staff we encountered had huge... More

We arrived to scenic world about 2pm so thought we would have been a little bit strapped for time but were able to do everything we wanted to. There were great directions from the main road to get to scenic world and there is quite a bit of parking for both cars and coaches. All the staff that we met... More

Haven't been to scenic world for ages, after deciding to do a family trip and booking our tickets on-line we were on our way. Arriving around 10.30 it was busy but not too busy, I have to say the staff from check in to the guys on the rides were all fantastic and I loved the way they interacted with... More

I've have always wanted to come to Scenic World and so glad I did. This place is absolutely amazing. For $35 you can go on all 3 rides as many times as you want and at the bottom of the valley there is a board walk you can take your time to walk around and just take it all in.

The rides are beautiful, at $35 for unlimited rides. But the jungle walk is equally mesmerizing, with the mining and natural history explained on info boards. If your fitness is there, then this place is worth it.

What a brilliant stop on our day tour. The scenic skyway and cableway were awesome but my favourite by far was the scenic railways and the chance to wander the rainforest. Brilliant!
