  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE!! Such an incredible feeling walking across this incredible suspension bridge! Easy and inexpensive admission, clean facilities and much more than just a bridge! The playground on the other side was perfect for children of all ages, the water play was cute and perfect for the hot day! We liked the live band as well. Only downfall was that the hot dogs on the other side were rather pricey, but also expected. Good food nonetheless. Gondola ride back was a crazy cool experience! Definitely recommend!
  • Just the scenery of the mountain alone was well worth the trip . It was breathtaking, astonishing. Just amazing. As far as the park the people were very friendly . It took about an hour to get through the park. I did ride the gondola with my husband but we did not ride any other of the rides . It would certainly be a great place to bring the kids on a summer vacation. They have a little theater and a little spot for the little ones. Teens would just be so excited about the scenery. Thank you for the day well spent .
