If you have never done it before it's interesting, but along with the good there is the bad. For me that was the main view was looking at everyone's back yards and some looked like abandoned buildings and many were really trashy.

This is the best way to get up and down Lookout Mountain. Just remember to leave enough time to queue in high season if you need to be back down by a specific time

Expensive..., we had to wait a long time before we could board the train which was very slow and the whole time there is the man shouting over the p.a. system and we couldn't understand a word he said. The only part about this experience that made it worthwhile was at the end they have a photographer and we got... More

Interesting ride up and down the mountain at almost 73 degree slope. We had not ever done this so it was fun. Make sure to go on a sunny day so you can view the valley below. Pricey and if kids were with us probably wouldn't spend the amount for us all.

The easy way to the top of Lookout Mountain! You will be blown away with the views as you go up the mountain. Easy parking, friendly assistants.

Well worth a visit. You think the Great Orme in Llandudno is a great ride - this one blows your mind! Almost vertical near the top and what great views.

We went on this ride because our kids wanted to go, but it really wasn't worth it. You can't see much from the train, even from the second row we were sitting in. It is neat how steep it is, and the steps inside the train fascinated the kids for some reason. They enjoyed it, but we wouldn't go back.... More

This was a very neat trip and has some pretty spectacular views. I was a little nervous due to the angle and heights involved, but the kids loved it. Be sure and visit the park at the top to get some more spectacular views in every direction.

We were a bit surprised that we had to pay for parking at this attraction! A bit odd. The tickets were a bit pricey for such a short ride. Not sure that we would do it again. Probably would not have done it this time except the couple we were with wanted to go. Had we been on our own... More
