Awesome experience! Came up from Florida for a few days to see some leaves changing and our family brought us here! It definitely showed us lots of beautiful fall color in an exciting setting!

So for $10 this is a good value. Nice view, nice ride, options for inside or outside. Takes you to a winery, it's open till 7:45, and it's not too long of a ride.

What a great way to spend a few hours. The ride was great and the views were even better. They have a real good group of people working here to take care of you and help you have a great time.

We decided to ride the sky tour on a whim and it was such a fun experience! The views were beautiful! We did both the open air ride and the gondala.
