Default St. Thomas Tram

Hi,
Can anyone tell me any information on the St. Thomas tram near the pier?
What does it cost. How far up does it go and can you spend time at the top?
Is it worth the money and also how long does the average ride last?
Thanks ahead of time for any info you may be able to provide.
Gene

As I remember, it's about $8 per person. The ride is less than 5 minutes. The view is spectacular from the top. There's a small shopping area and restaurant at the top. You can spend as much time (and money) at the top as you wish. Ride back down whenever you're ready.

We felt like it was an okay thing to do one time, though we probably won't bother doing it again.

Happy cruising! :-)

Bill

Rode it in January. If not mistaken cost was 12.50 pp. Again a spectacular view well worth the price. I enjoy going to the top of Lookout Point because there is a tropical bar who's specialty is a drink called a Bushwacker. I love getting one and sitting down looking at the habor it is very relaxing and peaseful.

Hi, my husband, my 5yr old daughter and I rode this tram in November 2000. It was absolutely wonderful. Very clean and we felt safe. The view was wonderful and we spent quite some time at the top overlooking the pier sipping a drink. Well worth the cost. You can walk over from the ship.

Paradise Point is a beautiful viewing place to relax and take in all the island has to offer. Price now around $12 pp and it is just a 5 minute walk and ride up the mountain.
Bon Voyage
