Loved the cable car ride. The history of the mines was great. Our lad enjoyed the adventure playground. Nice restaurant. The walk to the summit was steep, the views down to Matlock Bath in the valley were breathtaking.

Yep up to 6. 4 would be most comfortable though. However cable cars are linked in 3s so if you were split between 2/3 cars your still all be able to see each other.
