After riding the tram up the mountain you debark into the Mountain Station. An excellent venue with a wonderful gift shop, several food areas and outside seating with views that you see only in a postcard. The views alone will leave you breathless!!

The facility itself is all about profit. The lookouts and conveyances (elevator, stairs, platforms, etc) are all low budget. The emphasis is on multiple points of sale for souvenirs and food. The movie room and film are equally lame and dated. So, while the tram...More

We took the cable car up the mountain and enjoyed the view as it spun around. At the top they had a restaurant and bar. It seemed a little pricey, so I did not partake of the food and drink. Walking outside on some trails...More
