The valley views from Scenic World were breathtaking and we were lucky enough to experience the beauty of fog/cloud hovering over the valley floor.
We then took the 52 degree Scenic Railway to the valley floor for a walk through the rainforest. It was more theme park ride than railway and the kids loved every second of the almost vertical drop through rock and down to the valley.
Boy, I'm glad we did. The kids took their time and were well-supervised, as the steps are very steep and can be slippery, but the views of the falls and The Three Sisters were absolutely breathtaking. This is one of the most beautiful hikes I have been on - possibly in my life. Every turn gave a different perspective of the valley.
We're now keen to return to The Blue Mountains to try the many trails across the ridges. Scenic World was a particularly great option for us, as it gave our kids a thrill and amazing views of the key sights without being trampled by too many tourists. Even at full price, we felt that it was good value. The key is to go on a week day and early in the morning! Have you had a similarly great experience?
This was an unpaid review. I received a media pass for Scenic World valued at $88.
