Took the F train to Roosevelt Island and the Tram back. Took only about 3 minutes to wait for the tram, load, and take off. Ride took about 4 or 5 minutes. It was a free transfer to pick up the train @ Lexington Avenue/59th. Fantastic views. Only about 8 or 10 chairs lining the front and back of the tram - everyone else stands in the middle. There are poles and straps to hang on to, but you really don't need them. The ride is quite smooth. I was expecting there to be more swaying, based on what I read online before riding the Tram, but the ride was fine. I thought I would be more "creeped out" being that high, but it goes so fast that it is fine. There were families with kids who really seemed to enjoy it. Would definitely recommend it to others!
