For less than $10...its fun to take a ride in the now lilac colored gondola over the Spokane Falls. Yes, its better in the Spring when the water is high and the falls are fuller...but anytime it's nice to look over the lovely landscaped park and art pieces while viewing the Spokane River. Its a quick trip....15 minutes...but nice! Its... More

So this is a quick little trip over the falls - it gives you a unique perspective. The staff is very knowledgeable if you want more information - we were told it was part of the world fair. It is a cute experience.

I agree with other reviews. Skip the ride and find the steps near the falls. The ride stops frequently to let other riders on. Not worth the money. Also, the windows are dirty, so pictures from this unique perspective are not clear.

The SkyRide over Spokane Falls is not as magnificent or expensive as some gondola rides I have been on. Starting near the West end of Riverfront Park the ride carries you suspended in an enclosed cabin over Spokane River and under the historic Monroe Street Bridge. The round trip ride is about 20 minutes. Spokane Falls is the feature view... More

This was pretty neat. It's a gondola ride over the lower Spokane Falls, below the dam. You can really get a good look at the geology of the area and it's kind of fun to just soar over the river and look down at the scenery. I went at 2 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon, and there was no line... More

Enjoyed this gondola type ride along and over the Spokane River in the Riverpark area. Inexpensive, unique and well worth the 15 to 20 minute journey. Great pictures. An upclose view of the falls. I would recommend this.

This was a fun way to see the falls. If you don't want to spend the $8 you can also walk down the path and get almost as good a view. I wouldn't go if you are afraid of heights

what a great way to appreciate the Spokane River and falls. Would be nice if the ride was longer and less expensive..
