With 1.1 million annual visitors Capilano Suspension has plenty of paying customers to back them up.
But is Capilano Suspension Bridge worth it?
Let’s break things down to see if it is worth a visit.
Is Capilano Suspension Bridge Worth Visiting?
The Lower Mainland’s natural amusement park (if you don’t mind me saying) is always an option, whether you’re visiting Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver in summer or any other time of year,
That said, unlike other Vancouver nature attractions there’s a price attached just to get up there in the first place:
- Adults: $69.25
- 65+: $64.00
- Youth (13-17): $39.85
- Child (6-12): $29.35
- Under (0-5): free
Indeed, as I mentioned in my Capilano Suspension Bridge discount code post, there is no two ways around it – you’re going to have to pay full price.

What’s Included in Capilano Suspension Bridge Tickets
Of course, Capilano Suspension Bridge wouldn’t’ leave you on the hook for $69.25 without offering more than just a bridge, as spectacular as it is.
Yes, this gentle sway suspension bridge strung through old-growth forest is almost worth the ticket itself, but it’s important to understand there’s much more here:
- Return shuttle from downtown Vancouver
- Entrance to the entire park
- Access to the suspension bridge
- Access to the Cliffwalk (platforms taking you for a walk off the side of granite cliffs)
- Access to the Treetops Adventure (a sort of tree house community way above the forest floor)
- Access to the world’s largest private collection of totem poles
- A 10 minute history and nature talk with a knowledgeable guide
- A complimentary “I Made It!” souvenir certificate
- Complimentary ponchos in case of rain
- Live entertainment of the season
As you can see, there a four main attractions here (let’s say $17.25 each), and the bridge itself is one of the most unique attractions you’ll ever see.
Add in a mini guided tour and the value goes up from here.
The shuttle included in your tickets (when booking with our links below) also adds immense value.
If you’re a visiting tourist the two way taxi to Capilano Bridge from downtown will run you $50 or more, so there’s value here too.
That said, if you’re not looking to discover the great outdoors it’s by no means mandatory – there are plenty of other top things to do in Vancouver to keep you busy.
It is really worth it unless you’re on a tight budget – for those with a little more restrictions on their spending you can go to the Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge (no shuttle though, so you’ll need a car).
If you came to Vancouver for our nature though, this is a very wise bet to make.
