Sheepie has the yearly-pass membership, which allows up to 4 others to ride the gondola for half off. Even with 50% off, it was $20.98 – pricey like many tourist attractions in Vancouver.
It was a cloudy day, and slightly chilly up top. I managed to see some of the lumberjack show, which was pretty impressive. It gathered a large crowd and the humour of the performers made it an entertaining afternoon show.
Separate from the lumberjack show, there is an area where you can try out some axe throwing at a target. Not for children.
I unfortunately didn’t get to see the Bird show which my friend had mentioned that it was really spectacular. With all the fog, it might not have been a really visible show anyhow…
I was really impressed being able to see the two grizzly bears up close. Like many animals kept in captivity, they were used to having a crowd stare at them, photograph them, or have annoying people telling them to ‘look this way’. Seeing the grizzly’s made it worth the trip of coming up Grouse.
Luckily, it didn’t rain, but if it did, you can check out the small film theatre or buy some snacks at the food court, many whom has just done the Grouse Grind.
If you haven’t gone to Grouse, it’s worth checking it out. It’d be best to find someone with a yearly pass so you can go up half price. Spending nearly $50 just to go up and down a few minutes on the gondola is a bit of a rip off.
You can see 2 Grizzly Bears up close!!
Lumberjack on top of the pole doing stunts! It was a very foggy day…
Lumberjack show. The seats were jam packed with spectators.
Chilling at lounge…
