  • Linda waterfall, cable car ride is kind of cool ... I don't regret having gone, is a place that must be visited when you go to Gramado/Canela, but wouldn't go back again.

  • Obra de Deus!!!
  • Great park. The waterfall is awesome. There are BBQs there and you can do some bushwalking. Good for families.
  • Vistas lindas
  • Passeio de trem é ridículo. 12 reais por 2 minutos. Emboscada para turista. Prefira as atrações grátis que o parque oferece.
  • Excelente estrutura e ótimo lugar para passeios
