What did your visitors from out of town think of the downtown river falls?
“We had friends visiting from Idaho Falls two weeks ago,” wrote Mark and Darlene O'Bleness. “Thought it would be nice to go downtown to look at the falls. When walking through the very beautiful Riverfront Park we saw the gondola. What a great way to see the falls, we thought.
“Bad idea. When on the gondola it was like being in a sauna. We were all miserable and could not enjoy the view if we could see it. The glass is so scratched it is hard to see through. The only thing our friends could say when the ride/torture ended was, 'That was miserable.'
“Maybe someone high up in the Park Department should ride the gondola on a hot day and see what it is like.
“We did enjoy viewing the falls from the steps below the WWP building. It did not cost $7.25 a person.
“Our visitors still like our city, but the gondola is not the way to show it off.”
