We travelled from Kingman to the Skywalk blissfully unaware that the last 14 miles was a dirt road that was so bad that I feared for the cars suspension and our own safety.As we were travelling east we were advised by a Skywalk bus driver to take the Peach Springs road rather than go back via Kingman, which was an even worse dirt road for 29 miles.The car ended up covered in a thick pink dust that even permeated the door and boot surrounds.
On arriving at the ticket office we were told the package for 2 seniors was $150.00 plus. My travelling companion who is 75 years old was initially denied a discount, by an assistant who at best would be described as surly, because he could not prove he was over 55.He had to go back to the car park to get his passport before she would allow a discount.
We were then bussed to the Skywalk where they advised us that no cameras or mobile phones were allowed on the skywalk.The first time this was mentioned.To add insult to injury they charged a dollar per person to put your belongings in a locker.
You could pay $15.00 to have your photo taken on the Skywalk or you could buy overpriced prints in the shop.
The view from the Skywalk was okay, but not as impressive as I had expected and I can think of numerous attractions that are far
more interesting and better value than this one.
Construction work is still ongoing, so at the moment you appear to be paying full price for an incomplete attraction.The buffet lunch was disgusting, the staff generally were unhelpful,if not rude and looking for tips all along the way.
Although I have every sympathy with native americans, the rip off mentality and surliness we experienced at the Skywalk reflects badly on the Hualapai people,even if they are not to blame.
