Surprised by the lack of safety info...just quickly put you in chair and then you're off. You are told afterwards (barely) to put down the arm bar. It's ok for the views, but at $16 each, a bit pricey for the relatively short ride. Guess...More

We went at night so we could see all the lights and again during the day. Both views were incredible. Very peaceful, smooth ride. One of our "musts" every time we visit.

My daughter and husband went on this and really enjoyed the ride and scenery. Just make sure you secure you belongings because my husband lost a pocket knife along the way.

I am only giving 4 stars because the ticket sellers were not that friendly and the lift was closed a few times during the week due to construction and once due to weather. Which I do understand couldn't be helped and I'm sure construction will...More

I'm sure there is, but don't remember whathe it is. The gondola holds only 2 to 3 adults, so that would limit your weight as well. It certainly isn't a small amount as we were in the 450 to 500 lb range.
