  • Nice views at the top observation deck. But pretty disappointing space provided. Only a small out door area to enjoy the view. Went at night, tour groups made it tough to secure a nice spot to take pictures.
  • Quick up and quick down - lines seemed long but moved quickly. Maybe 15min wait, just after sunset in late December. The station is up a hill, so the walk can be tricky in icy/snowy conditions. The cable car itself is very stable and has large glass windows all around for viewing. I even noticed the staff cleaning the windows after every trip. And of course the view at the top is incredible, though you likely won’t spend much time up there.
