If you are planning to have dinner on Grouse Mountain, make a reservation for the Observatory restaurant and the skyride admission is included. The entrees at the restaurant are $40 a plate so it 'pays' for itself.
It's too bad that so many people have bad review about the skyride. $40 is meant to be for the ride up and all the attractions at the top. Yes, the lumberjack show is cheesy, the bird show is interesting enough, the tourists seem to like the wood carvings, the 2 bears in the refuge always seem to be sleeping, the movie about the refuge is interesting about how they rescued the bears and what research they're doing.
Yes, it is overpriced, but you can get around it by eating at the Observatory. Or walk up the Grouse Grind if you dare...
