What people are saying about San Jacinto
This was a stunning ride. Go up in daylight and down after dark. That way you see the towers that hold the tram up and the stunning closeness to the rocky terrain. Then, you see the city lights below on your way back. We got a bit queesy from the altitude at first but recovered in time to have a great dinner at the restaurant at the peak. The large, expensive steak dinner is plenty for two. The Malbeck wine goes well with it. With two side dishes, wind and desert you will pay a bit over $100.00. There is a less expensive alternative place to eat if you want to do so.
I went in at about 10 with my husband. We waited in line shortly, and traded our voucher for two tickets for the 10:30 ride. We went up to the top and enjoyed walking and hiking around. We were there for about 4 hours. It's absolutely beautiful up there and amazing to think that there is this jem 8,000 feet up. We definitely want to go back and do one of the longer hikes! Must do activity!
This was a spectacular rid, well-run and safe. The park at the top is really special and you should go as early as you can and stay as long as you can or even camp overnight. I'm looking forward to going back in the winter for snowshoeing or skiing on the top of the San Jacintos! Bring your own food, if you can, but there is a cafeteria that is ok. Good fries.
I really enjoyed the ride up to the top. We went around sunset and saw the sky changing colors on our way up. The tram ride attendants were super friendly, I especially liked the lady who was playing great music on our way down! She was funny and entertaining. Didn't realize a tram ride would be so fun!
Turned out I didn't need them since the crowd wasn't too bad but it was nice to have the voucher with me that guaranteed admission. Still needed to go to the counter to get it exchanged for a ticket for a specific time. I was happy with the outcome.
