If heights are an issue, this may not be the outing for you. The small gondola carries you up about 3,000 feet in 18 minutes. One can feel lightheaded at the top but the views are worth the effort. The fare is $8.50. Make sure...More

We are from Denver and all felt the altitude change. Very rapid ascent. Top is at 13,500ft. Fantastic views and fun.

Facilities at top and bottom could be better, they seem to have been disregarded. Can't beat the view though. Try to at least go up to the second level above the building.

Look at the sky. If it is clear, go. Well worth it. The ride itself is fun. You're at about 14,000' elevation. If you're not used to that, don't spend over an hour up there. A taxi can take you up there for $3-5. Pack...More

This is a great trip to get an astonishing view of the city (if not cloudy) and enjoy the cold breeze of the mountains. If you are up to some adventure, I encourage you to take a horse ride for 30 mins - 1 hour...More
