Our day trip to the Blue Mountains was great. Staff were polite but getting back to Echo Point where our car was parked, after our Scenic World adventure was a problem. We discovered that the last bus was at 5.58. Considering it was a public holiday, we thought, what with the crowds of people, the shuttle buses should have run for longer. With the help of a staff member we were able to get a taxi.

We attended this event outside NSW school holidays and even so this is a busy attraction.

My advice to anyone short on time would be to arrive for a 9am start, go on the skyway/cable way/train consecutively in that order and then go for a walk at the bottom. The coal mine is quite interesting with plenty to look at combined with heaps of photo opportunities. It is also a bit cooler and less busy people wise.

For those staying all day, we found having a long lunch in the middle of the day was the way to go to get away from the crowds.

From around 3:30pm onwards the coaches mostly departed and we had multiple trips on all 3 attractions. Our family favorite was the train, particularly going from the bottom up. Just make sure you hang onto your gear as you head up on a good angle.

Overall, an excellent attraction with plenty to see. Well worth the money spent.

Firstly, views are not as good as at echo point, which is free, but this was a good way to get children excited about nature and the mountains without dragging them on long, tiring walks. Loved the SkyTrain - try and get to the front - and the cable car across the valley with the glass floor. The cable car down the mountain was a good way to see the forest floor and the different trees and vegetation. BUT, it's busy, and the queuing system is rubbish - you have to queue on busy stairs, which is ridiculously unsafe with children, and through the gift shop, which just makes everything awkward. Staff do their best but it's just not set up for the volume of people - mainly the large coach parties, which spoils it.

We arrived at 9.30am and, having booked on online, avoided the main queue to pay. The cost to use the 3 rides was an expensive 39AUD but each was enjoyable and memorable. We started with the sky way trip hundreds of feet above and across the valley. With open sides this gave good opportunities for photos of the falls, three sisters and surrounding hills. The glass floor through the centre of the car was also fun and gave another perspective on the views. We next descended to the forest walkway by the scenic railway which, being the steepest in the world, was a good experience. After following the longest route on the raised walkway through the forest we returned to the top by the cable way. Although mid week in a school holiday we did not have to queue for any of the rides and were not troubled by crowds. We definitely recommend booking online and arriving early.

We had such a great time at Scenic World with our two toddlers - Sue and Tony were fantastic and made such a fuss of our 2.5 year old which was so lovely! We took the train down which was faster and steeper than we anticipated - great fun!

We visited on a Friday in March, late afternoon (maybe 2 hours before Scenic World closed) and we barely had to queue. Maybe 10 minutes for the railway, and then were just able to walk straight onto the cable cars with no waiting. We took the short walk around the forest due to the toddlers but it was still interesting with various information boards along the way. Sad that the busyness has put people off (reading other reviews) - maybe try to visit midweek and definitely not on a holiday, because it really is good when it's not crowded.
