Dear all

We shall take a Goldenpass from Interlaken Ost (08:06) to Gstaad (10:53), then change bus from Gstaad to Col de Pillon (Postbus 180: 1137-1210) , then take cable car to Glacier 3000, probably we can arrive at 13:00. I have to take the cable car going back to Col de Pillon at 1600, that means we have only 3 hours in Glacier 3000. Is this possible to have the following done? 1. Alpine Coaster, 2. Peak Walk by Tissot, 3. Sliding in the Fun Park, 4. Cliff Restaurant. Thank you!!

Yes I would think so Cecily,

Depending on how much time you want to spend in the fun park and your restaurant visit isn't too long!

Thanks Lucas for your quick response! Do you know the timetable of the cable car between Col de Pillon and Glacier 3000? Is there many people queue for Coaster and Sliding? Besides, any lockers in Gstaad train station? We have 2 big luggages. Thank you!!

It is a bus from Gstaad to Col de Pillon (20 minutes). From there you can take several gondolas in the area but Col de Pillon is the Glacier 3000 stop.

I couldn't tell you if there it will be busy when you get there for the Coaster or sliding unfortunately.
There are stortage lockers at Gstaad - you can find sizes and prices here.

Hey Cecily!

I had the same query about how much time would be needed there at the top (glacier 3000), so I sent a message on their official website asking the same. They replied saying about 3 to 4 hours is enough, provided you don't spend too much time for one particular activity. So I'm assuming the queues wouldn't be too long or time consuming and possible you can do those things within 3 hours. But again, one can never be sure :)

*possibly

Also, you can check their official website

And they do respond quite fast. So if you have any other queries, simply send your questions to them 😃👍
