Nice stop-off attraction if you’re driving the Trans Canada Highway between Hope and Kamloops. Short but spectacular Tram ride up and down, interesting bridge, great river views and knowledgeable staff. Tram ride was expensive for the duration and ice cream was over priced. Takes 1.5...More

I'll keep this short. $88 family price is a lot. Tram is alright and there really isn't much to do. Food is overpriced for the value and servers are not the best. The suspension bridge isn't even suspended! The ice cream was alright though.

I surely wouldn't if you are first timers. I do canoeing and I would not even think about it. Be safe.

Just drove it again yesterday- great shape. Quite a few passing lanes so you don't get stuck behind trucks etc too much. Wonderful scenery!!
