As a local, I wanted to make a review of this attraction. I have been literally hundreds of times in my life. Honestly, the cost to enter to park is pricey. If I weren't familiar with the area, I would be hesitant to pay that much. I will say, that it is a must see at least once! After you've been to the park, you can then visit the Blue Ridge Parkway and enjoy the beauty and variety of the natural resources of this area for free. The benefit of going to Grandfather Mountain is the educational aspect that you gain from the guides, the museum, et cetera. Certainly the Mile High Swinging Bridge is a fantastic way to see a view that you have few opportunities to see elsewhere. The animal sanctuaries are really well managed and the staff are always friendly and helpful.
