Also because in the end looks more like a theme park and with so many too many suovenir and shops restaurants that really take away charm

Contrary to expectations, the presentations in the culture were not only very interesting and entertaining, but also geared to take park (vocals, Boomerang throwing, Javelin throwing etc.). The gondola ride (with 2 drop off options) gives a wonderful view over the rainforest through the bird's eye view. With the train ride through the rain forest, you can admire flora and fauna from a different perspective. Who wants to sit comfortably while driving, can sit for an extra charge of AUD $ 50 in first class.
I've been here last February with my family and it was a great experience. I'd suggest you go for sky rail one way and if possible have someone pick you up (by car) when you reached the top, that way you'll be able to save some $$. There are a few markets that you'll be able to explore which is pretty good to buy some souvenirs. Highly recommended.
Lovely little market/craft town with nice walks around in the national park
