We got discount tickets while staying at the Frenchman's Cove that were for $5 tickets per person. At $5 a person this was so worth the ride up and being able to take in the view from above. It also allowed to have a couple drinks while we took pictures and enjoyed the beautiful day overlooking the harbor. At $20... More

at $21 per person, it's hard to say its worth the price. Supposedly, you can take a cab up to the top for far less, but I couldn't find any that would do so (I get the impression it is frowned upon). There are three trams on each side of the sky ride. They take you to Paradise Point, which... More

The guy taking the tickets was miserable and abrupt. The cable car ride is very short and at the top the view is fantastic. There is a cafe serving food and drinks in my opinion are expensive plus there is a service charge on top. There are also sign to tell visitors that the seats are only for those buying... More

To ride a tram car up the side of a mountain was great!! The view was awesome. The shops at the top were very nice and not expensive. Drinks and snacks looking over the hillside was the best!! 19.00 a person you can't go wrong!!!!!

Beautiful view of the St. Thomas harbour and surrounding areas. Short sky ride to the top of the mountain where you will find a restaurant with indoor/outdoor seating. We met Bobbi who was not only our server, but had a wealth of information regarding the history of St. Thomas. She pointed out various landmarks and answered all of our questions.... More

Really nice views of the cruise ships and town. The price is very high and the restaurant at the top charges an extra 15 percent on all orders. If you want to spend the day at the location the 20 dollar per person tickets are not a bad deal but not really worth it for a few photos.

The $21 price seems a little steep but we thought it was worth it for the view on a clear day. I can't comment on the restaurant food but my frozen banana daiquiri wasn't bad at all. There is a also a very interesting memorabilia shop with all sorts of old coins and other shipwreck treasures along with 2 old... More

Nice ride and views. The food was ok. The drinks were better. A lot of construction going on. Inexpensive, you can buy a ticket there. Little shops along with the restaurant
