  • Despite the long queue to get in on a Saturday which is expected, totally worth the wait! Great views over Genting Highlands, nightly ride in between the foggy skies is really cool!  more »

  • Lots of crepitations throughout the ride; but good Heaven, it didn't plopped down. I felt like a Jalopy treading an uphill. However, it was a rare and thrilling experience. So four stars.
  • Although it stopped 2 times when it was climbing up, it was pretty stable and safe to me. The humid did not affect the mechanic and you will have a feeling that you are up in the air. The cars are big and can fit 5-6 people with many space. We climbed through the mist and high mountain and arrived safely to the highland.
  • Good view,but so sorry for staff that work at the skyway cable car,especially the one that guarding for queue.no attitude at all,we come as a group,paying and some of us is drinking coffee,we already know that drink not allowed to bring into cable car.so we planned to throw it on the way we queueing. But one lady come to us and pointing her finger to us,and told us to throw away our coffee. She supposed no to do that,would be great if she come to us and told nicely. Need more training for attitude and how to treat customer.
  • Take the one with the glass floor much more fun... All in all it was a long sweet ride
  • Affordable rides. Cabin could accomodate about 8 adults and was clean. Overall journey from lowest station to highest station took about 15 minutes (one stopover ). Buying ticket was hassle free, per trip basis (so it is not cheaper if you buy return). Take note of the operating hours.
