Brilliant! It does exactly as you want it to. I wanted to travel up, from the ground level to the viewing platform (see pic) but it also travels the other way... Amazing! As a feat of engineering its clever and useful and it's free!

I was told by the hotel to take the lift down and look around. I found a trail that walked into the woods. The lift was clean and very efficient.
