We were very hesitant to take the ride because it was expensive. $48 for adults and $24 for kids. We have done it before so it doesn't make much sense to do it again because of the cost factor. But decided to do it again...More

Wonderful ride and view, but thought it was too pricey. We could not hike once we got to the top because there was still too much snow. I think $30 would have been a fair price, not $48

Fantastic place to spend with kids and if possible do the zip line also. we were lucky they had snow, and kids enjoyed a great summer playing with snow.
