Slick money making scheme to capitalize on stunning views. They do not advertise that you can save your $30 fare and actually walk up the hill in little over an hour with average fitness, steep, a bit rocky so wear study shows. Follow the Tiki track signs from gondola entrance and you will experience shady forest walk, alongside mountain bikers and zip liners.
At the top avoid the overpriced luge ride which forces you to do the kiddy track and pay for the actual luge track separated so it's s minimum $22 spend.
If you must get the gondola due to inadequate fitness then consider the combo pack which includes 5 luge rides as they will not let you buy this up the top. It's better value this way.
