We enjoyed a one-way ride on the tram 3 weeks ago. It was a windy afternoon & all the riders were crowded by the door. The ride itself was very pleasant and smooth. The staff member invited quetions and readily answered all questions.

Amazing views at dusk, very worthwhile and money well spent! The dining at top was reasonable especially considering lack of competition!
