I usually do not like overly touristy places, but I really enjoyed this. Yes it was busy, but the staff were all upbeat, happy and helpful. I enjoyed all of the scenic lookouts and the rides across the Jameson valley. The highlight was definitely the railway, just amazing.

Well worth visiting for the rides and to view the Blue Mountains. The rides are great fun giving some superb views over the blue Mountains and the Three Sisters. Forest walks were well signposted and educational. All staff were informative and professional. First class.

Took about half day, and even that wasn't long enough. A bit pricey but worth it once you take your time with the place. Amazing views, great place to hike and take photos. does take up half your day at least, could have spent more time there.

Visit the tree sisters and enjoy the walk to the falls downstairs. The "Katoomba" falls aren't really worth it.. the Lauree falls are better I think, people we crossed told us about it but I didn't see them. We walked to scenic world and took the train up for 19 dollars. That's a nice experience for 2 minutes... Instead of... More

We had a great day on the attractions which are so much more than 'rides'. History, education and a chance to be part of this stunning area without too much walking or climbing. Loved everything about it except the young lady screaming in my ear on the world's steepest railway! But all in good fun. Worth the effort.

We had a great time. I Have not been here for years and it was well worth it with our kids. The staff are knowledgable and informative. Early time slot was great with very few people around. Tourist busses arrived around 11am and it became busy.

As part of a day tour from Sydney, we called in briefly to Scenic World. The main attraction here appears to be the 3 rides --- each one taking probably less than 2 minutes (or maybe 3). Try to stand in the middle of the cableway that goes across a narrow gorge --- the glass floor is pretty "cool". The... More

Great place to visit. Took our 17 and 13 year old. They thoroughly enjoyed it - especially the railway. Walking is not too hard -I'm not overly fit. Worth the visit. Needs half a day. Recommend the 9am start.

Pricey enough at circa $40 for a ticket, however you do get unlimited rides for the day. Half a day will do it really though, so get there early and go on the three rides, and walk around. It's a bit annoying that you need to book a timeslot during the school holidays, however understandable when you see the crowds... More
