  • Restaurant at the base was chaotic. Nearly missed our booked slot on the cable as they took nearly an hour to serve us despite several protests to the staff. Long dusty drive up in a ramshackle mini bus to the summit where the ride was situated. The actual ride on the cable was very good, thrilling and great views.Bus back had no air conditioning and we were boiling by the time we got back. In summary, great ride but badly let down by the supporting infrastructure.
  • So much fun and so many options in one place.
