What people are saying about Palm Springs

Totally worth it! We had a bit of a wait both at the parking lot area to enter (about 15 mins) and then another 1 hour for the next tram up, but even with that, going up to the top is so worth it! We hiked around for a bit and then enjoyed snacks and drinks in the restaurant and bar area.

Recommend going early in the day so you can enjoy the scenery and walking around/hiking. Fun ride up with beautiful views and very cool ride down in the dark. There is a bar and restaurant to enjoy some cocktails food and views.

The experience was great but the dining is subpar. Eat before you head up to the mountain.

Amazing and thanks.... it was so easy getting a ticket thru your voucher

Wonderful experience for my family visiting from Singapore!
