Although it provides spectacular views, the Tram ride up isn't exactly comfortable - not much seating and you're packed in like sardines. That said, once up top, there are a couple of items that help me give this 4 stars: the ski mountain coaster (buy...More

If you have kids there is lots to keep them busy. The views are spectacular. The food, not so much. Eat before you go, unless you want fudge.

Actually, you can - if you don't mind it getting a bit wet. There are three water rides. Only one got us a bit wet. The other two - only a very little. My purse got a bit damp, but was fine.
Will there be any snow activities available here in Mid October ? If so, what are they ?

They usually don't start making snow until after Thanksgiving. Last October it was up in the 90's!!! You just never know around here what the weather will do.
