Really well run, and not at all crowded, except at rush hour. We used both the main lift and the lower lift (gondola) which we never found busy.

Excellent service to top- but at times of bad/ windy weather- can close.
Also have been hit by power outages!!

The view from the first stop is breathtaking. The second stop is ok but not great. The restaurant is overpriced and does not offer any views of anything really. I would not recommend spending the money on the gondola. Mind you, normally I am all for visiting tourist traps but didn't find this one worth it.

The views were very beautiful however I felt the prices were kind of high. $49 for 1 adult. But the view was spectacular!
