I had taken this ride many years ago but wanted my two grandsons to see the great view so iI took them this time. The ride is wonderful and the view is fantastic. I was disappointed that there are not very many shops or attractions when you get to the top. When we did this years ago there were lots... More

The view was nice! The food was gross and expensive but the drinks were good! It is a little expensive for what you get! I like the ride but it's short and there is not much at the top! I wouldn't do it again because of the price. We did really enjoy the view!

Easy walk from cruise ship. U need to be able to climb quite a few steps to get the car. It's worth it though just for the view. There is a small shop and cafe.

We were staying on the island for a week and our hotel informed us that Wednesday evenings was a discounted night to take the Skyride. If it wasn't for the discount, I probably would have passed because it is quite expensive to ride. Once up to the top, the views of Long Bay and Charlotte Amalie were fantastic. Make sure... More

Check ahead often doesn't run except cruise ship days but you can drive up if you go southbound and take a left after the drive for Barefoot Buddha Coffee. Follow the (steep) cement road to the top. Great place to visit and take in the view of Charlotte Amalie harbor. Locals who like to exercise walk that road and it's... More

This place has an absolutely beautiful view of the harbour. We visited while on a cruise and were able to watch the sun set and all of the lights come on in the town below and on the ship ... STUNNING!!! Great entertainment and drinks! Don't miss the Bushwacker... but be careful 😄!

This place has to have the best view of the harbor giving you a place to take this year's Christmas card photo. We topped it off with Bushwackers (Baileys, rum, Khalua and ...), Nachos and sandwiches. Everything was very good. A warning: this place only seems to be open when a cruise ship is in port so if you are... More

We took the NCL cruise to St. Thomas. We read about how wonderful the view from paradise point is. Also, we read about not to take any excursion since the sky ride is just right across the street from the port. It is cheaper to buy tickets there rather than from the cruise. We enjoyed the view very much.. The... More

I have visited St Thomas four times. I always loved going to Paradise Point. The views of Charlotte Amalie harbor are incredible. While the sky ride is fun and very enjoyable. This trip we chose to drive our rental car up to Paradise point instead of spending the $21 each for the sky ride. The views are always amazing but... More
