Waited a long time in the queue because people were booking online to skip the queue. It was lovely up there but didn't get the chance to see everything.

Very nice views and people working there is very nice. The only downside of this is the queue that you need to get into and price a bit excessive i think.

It was ok, they do crowd you in and a nice smooth ride but you can’t really see all the places and then get the ride down.

There is limited space when you pick a busy time, but if you are able to get to the cable car station before 10 am you should be ok. I carried a large camera bag with no prob. Just had to take it off and put it on the floor
