Ladies and gentlemen I like this thing. Actually, I think I love it! I love it so much that I've actually gone on a date here, twice. I know what you're thinking and don't worry- they did call me back. It's a fun way to get a wicked aerial view of the city. It's fast and easy to take, it's also a pretty smooth ride minus one bumpy part when the tram passes the dividing tower (picture above). Here's a few pictures for you guys, hope you enjoy them.
How the Tram works
This little thing is very easy to ride, all you have to do is follow these steps:
1. Buy a ticket for $4. Tickets are required to ride the tram to the top. If you're at the top and want a ride down there is no fare required. You purchase tickets at the base, it's designed to be like a roundtrip pass. I'm sure they assume that what goes up must come down and vise versa.
2. A Tram operator checks for valid fare and lets you aboard.
3. Enjoy the sights. Make small talk, or not.
4. Say thanks to the operator and get off.
The Tram holds 79 passengers per cabin, with 2 cabins operating simultaneously.
It travels at 22 MPH, reaching its destination in approximately 3 minutes.
