Friendly rangers. Gorgeous views. It only takes a few minutes to get to the top. Definitely take your time and soak it all in! We should've brought food and enjoyed it a little longer.

The ride to the top in the aerial tram is about the whole experience. There is a nice gift shop and lookout point at the top. They take credit/debit cards. Time spent there, ideally, is about 30-45 minutes once at the top.

Read their website first, dont do the same mistake i did, drove over there just to be told they were closed due to high winds. Clearly says on the website to call before going to assure the climate is good for riding.

We enjoyed the history and ride of the Tram. The wait was less than 5 minutes. The attendants were super friendly. Would recommend the ride if in the area.

Usually 6. Unfortunately on the return journey families don't want to split up, so sometimes the cars go down with only 2/3 people in. We had quite a wait at the top because of this.

Yes. As long as the line is not long at the bottom, it's doable. Short time on top but able to do.
