Island in the Sky is a 150 foot rotating platform which gives you a veiw of the whole park.

This ride combines a scenic view of the park and Lake Eloise with history of the site, and some smooth jazz music. What more could you ask for?

The view is great, the operation of this attraction is less so. I can only assume they don't fill the ride due to weight restrictions on the structure. That said, it's really frustrating to stand in line and watch the super slow pace at which the single ride op works the attraction (there is one other in the booth, but s/he has no impact on cycle times). Pass it up first thing in the AM and give it a shot later in the day when the line may be less.
