Situated atop Mount Mtatsminda, the park offers excellent views over Tbilisi, especially if you take a spin on the 213-foot (65-meter) Ferris wheel—you might even glimpse the Caucasus Mountains in the distance. Three sections contain rides appropriate for different ages: the kids’ zone, the family zone, and the extreme zone.
Tbilisi sightseeing tours, by foot or by vehicle, typically include a short visit to Mtatsminda Park. If you want to spend more time there, however, you can buy a ticket for unlimited access to the rides and entertainment. Alternatively, pay for each ride as you go (with cash).
