  • great view over the city and surroundings, also a nice walk up/and or down, the entertainment is not so great up there, so just enjoy the view  more »
  • Chair lift is a fun way to get up to the top. Great views from the top.
  • Nice view of the city. Looks pretty trashy though. Needs cleaned up.
