The tunnel leading to the elevator was over 600 feet long and the elevator rose over 200 feet. This is a pretty amazing attraction considering it is almost 100 years old. The ride up was bumpy but fun. The operator said she took over for her mother who operated it before her. The cost to ride up or down was NZ$2. We rode up and walked down. Of course once you've gotten to the top of Durie Hill there is the War Memorial Tower. There is no elevator here but it is free. The view from the top was great.
