Getting into this area is fun as parking can be an issue. The base station itself is fairly average with a coffee shop and loos. Thankfully, we spoke to a traveller who had just come off the mountain advising us to select ticket option three on the price menu. I thought nothing more of this. Then, once in the queue, we were approached by a member of the team there asking if we needed advice on the various ticket types. Seriously, there are many! None of them are cheap either. We felt loathed to pay $83.90 + parking $5.00 to go up, but, we had made the effort to get here and did so anyhow. The ride up is fun and very swift. It's hard to appreciate the gradient you are being taken up until you are at the top. Once there, you could easily spend the day up there (in the sumer anyhow). That said, once you have walked up the various paths and spent time appreciating the flora and fauna and perhaps even had a bite in the restaurant, time will have flown by. There is a hidden viewing deck in the gift shop at the bottom which most people don't go out onto. We feel it's worth seeing. All in all, an expensive yet worthwhile way to appreciate the mountains here.
