These are types of things you do - right? We took the kids (8, 4) with two other adults and enjoyed the ride. Wasn't counting but I'm guessing about 5 times around. Certainly not cheap but great photo spots.

I was a little scared at first! But once it was moving, it was great! The view at night was amazing.

The ride was about 3 minutes too short, but was very enjoyable. The view was great, and the enclosed cars made it very comfortable.

It's a bit expensive and should offer a family/group discount. The loading/unloading process is a bit strange.

Took 3 grandchildren, ages 18, 15 and 5 on this ride. They loved it. It was most exciting when the operator stopped and backed up! They were ready to go again and asked when we were coming back!

Price was good and we really enjoyed the ride. The people were very nice and friendly. I would recommend going at sunset so you can see the lights.
