About the SkyRide

Enjoy a 15 minute ride over the second longest urban falls in the United States. The SkyRide offers exceptional views with easy access. Travel past art deco City Hall, then gradually drop down 200 feet over the Huntington Park Natural Area. From there, continue access the Spokane River in front of one set of falls, under the historic Monroe Street bridge and return to Riverfront Park.

Each cabin is ADA compliant and can hold six passengers. They are not air conditioned or heated, and the ride may close with extreme heat or wind.

The SkyRide was named “One of the Top 12 Scenic Cable Rides in the World” in 2013 by Conde Nast Traveler. It underwent a major maintenance while it was offline for Skate Ribbon construction.
