"views were absolutely spectacular"
The ride up on the chondola was beautiful, the tree canopy walk was really cool and the views were absolutely spectacular. It will be much better when the restaurant they are building opens up but the shops were cute & quaint and we had a really great time while we were there.

"Very nice place to see."
Very nice place to see. I don't think 6 hours that the site says people spend there is correct but you will be there for a few hours.
