"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.
Tip: Wait and buy your tickets at the anakeesta. We had tickets we'd purchased from vacationsmadeeasy.Com and the workers there did not recognize them nor know how to process them. Besides the fact that we paid $25. More going through vacationsmadeeasy.Com than we would have buying our tickets there. That was very disappointing and we felt very much taken advantage of.

I thought there would be more to do at the top of the mountain. The advertising is somewhat deceiving.
Tip: This is not an all day trip.
