“okay”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

$4 dollars a person seemed a little expensive for a 2 min tram ride each way. beautiful view, but not sure it was worth the price.

“Great views but don't expect to much in 5 minute ride.”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

It cost us $12 for 3 people. We rode up took photos it lasted about 5 minutes for the whole ride. Then we rode down and intended to ride up and down once more but we were kindly told to get off,lol. The tickets are only good for 1 trip there and back. I don't really know if it was all worth it for a 10 minute trip and $5 for parking although the view Mt. ST. Helen and Mt. Hood was breathtakingly beautiful!

“Nice quick ride”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

to see the layout of the city, was a little hazy and foggy but we saw the mountains in between the waves of fog. Very nice 'driver'/escort whatever you want to call him and he had several tips for things to do and where to go around the city and where to go at the top for the best views. Went on a weekend in the morning so it wasn't busy and price is great!

“easist way to see the city underneath”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

the aerial tram actually gives service to the visitors and people who work at the hospital above, but everyone can pay the 4$ fee and go. the cart is big, and the ride only takes a few moments but when you get to the top it's great. just stayed few minutes at the top and went back down but it was great to see the city beneath me.

“Best bargain in the city”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

The price is right, 3.00 a person. The trip up and back is very quick. and the views are incredible. Someone with vertigo probably should think twice about the trip. I have a fear of heights but managed just fine. Go on a clear day and see all the way to Mt. Hood. Unfortunately, there isn't much to do once you get to the top, it is just a form of transportation for OHSU.
