Renovation work continues on our new Upper Terminal building
Renovations continue on our 48 year-old Upper Termial building at the top of the tram. Until the new building is completed around Memorial Day, facilities at the top of the tram will be limited.
No indoor shelter will be available except for the High Finance Restaurant. Outdoor porta-potties will be available. The weather can change suddenly and visitors should check the weather on top before boarding the tram.
We are looking forward to the completion of our new building and appreciate your patience while construction continues.
