This place is to be with a lot of time and enjoy each of its corners, the only drawback is that you depend on the weather and you must know how to take advantage of it

45 min wait to go up. 1.5 hrs to.go down, because of long wait lines to get on the carts. Spent 10 min at the top max. Got very cold at 5 PM and it was miserable
