Just a nice ride to the mountain top and back with great views. One tip for the tram owners - don't overcrowd the cars and you will get a perfect rating. When the cars are only partially occupied it is a relaxing ride but can be a bit claustrophobic if too busy and full. Add some seats for those who... More

We had a blast. I was nervous about the ride in a TRAM but it was okay and we had a blast at the top. We've already planed to go again during our spring break visit.

It was okay, if you have not done I guess worth it once. The building when you get up the mountain needs to move out of the 70's. It just seems so outdated.

This is only for those who are going to the top for a reason like skiing. It is simply transportation. You will stand for the ride in a crowded car with lots of people every time regardless of the time of year. We went in February and we thought it would be a site seeing adventure. Not really, we went... More

This is a great way to get to the top of the mountain! The views were spectacular & our "driver" on the way up was fantastic. There are things to do at the top, plan on spending at least another $20 each if you want to to anything other than just sit there.

As they say, it's the journey, not the destination. The tramway provides great views, lots of photo opportunities. It's a relaxing journey after walking all day. The desitination (at the top), well, not so much - not a lot to see or do. But the ride up and back is worth it.

After riding this tramway, I was disappointed at the trip. It seems like a total waste of time if you ask me. There was nothing to do when you arrived to the top of mountain. It seemed like everything was closed except for the ice skating rink. Don't let me get started on the live animal exhibit. To charge for... More

The weather was quite chilly when we went but the ride up was really pleasant and the operator added some fun infomation about the sights on the way up. The kids enjoyed the animals on displayed, especially the otter feeding time.
