“A "must do" attraction”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I am afraid of heights so was dubious about a gondola ride to 9000 ft. The gondola never got really far from the ground they told me- so I went and am so pleased I did! The views from the observation deck were fantastic and I loved the gift shop as well!
You can see the whole lake and surrounds from the top. This is a must do attraction!

“Majestic!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Yes, it is on the pricey side, but it is definitely worth it! Plan to go on a day that is nice weather so that you can relax and enjoy yourself once you get to the Observation Deck. They have done an amazing job with it! Sooo nice! You can also continue to the next stop and do some fun activities like hiking, riding another 12 minute ski lift, having a bite to eat at the lodge. Brand new....there are rope challenge courses. We didn't do them, but they looked like a lot of fun! Those are an extra charge. Check out the website for all the 411.

“Closed”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

I was disappointed that this attraction was not open on a Friday of a Holiday weekend, but was open Saturday. Saturday I was leaving, it was to late.

“Worth the view”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It was a beautiful ride to the top of Heavenly, the views were well worth it. The additional chairlift ride was also worth going although because there was still too much snow on the ground and it was too windy for the Zip line we were not able to get off at that point.

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Took Gondola ride up to observation deck Memorial Day weekend. Beautiful. Still snow on the ground up on the mountain. Drank coffee. Then went to top of heavenly and went on the blue streak zip-line. What a blast! Longest zip-line in the lower 48 states. Can go up to 55mph. Staff was so safety conscious and friendly! I recommend the Gondola ride to everyone. View of Tahoe Lake is beautiful.
