It was a really nice view once got to the top. I’m not one for heights so I wasn’t looking while going up. The only thing I would have liked is to have the cafe opened up to try some food

I bought tickets online and when at the ticket box picking up my tickets, I found out that it was much cheaper to purchase tickets at the ticket window than online. It was a good experience for us. We had a good time.

I paid $6.00 more per person on this site then on the day that we went, and as a resident of Alberta you will get a better rate at the front desk. The view was beautiful, the staff was extremely friendly and professional. I wouldn’t eat at the restaurant - the $90.00 meal for 2 of us left us hungry and dissatisfied - salmon in a bag and overcooked chicken were terrible. The only part that was actually worth it was the 6 minute gondola ride up and down - so it that’s all you’re looking for, then you won’t be disappointed.
