Great views. A bit confusing where to go in lobby to exchange my e-mail reservation for an actual ticket. Finding parking took a while. Don't forget to visit the steam clock nearby.

We're a family,from China.We planned to spend The Spring Festival in Voncouver for 10days.
Voncouver is a quiet and comfortable city, with the quiet of nature in the bustling urban style.
Being in the “Voncouver Lookout”, make me fall in love with this city.

I headed up for sunset and wasn't disappointed! Can get a little crowded at those times of day but there's still space to walk around at the time, with interesting plaques all around the lookout. Very easy to get my ticket and head up the lift!

Sonia W, Sep 2017
I probably would not buy this ahead in future as there were no queues and as I had already bought the ticket we felt we should visit it but could not see much on the day as smoke from the fires several 100 miles away overshadowed Vancouver most of August.
