Fantastic views from the top. Good lunch in the Sky Bistro. It was worth it having tickets in advance to get parking even though signs said Lot Full and having a set time. We didn’t have an option for return time but we’re told it was only an hour later. Switching it was no problem but we didn’t use it in the end as we hiked down.

Expensive but very worth it+ we had 2 adults 2 teens and all loved it. We went up at 8 and theres a summer music festival just started so fun to see sun go down a bit w live music at the top. Last gondola down is around 9 pm so u cant stay for full summer sunset. But worth the $ for experience
