The only drawback was waiting for it to open, about 15 minutes late. The views are stunning and we really enjoyed the longest cable car ride in Britain one mile.

When we went on Saturday 29th September we headed up on the cable car. We asked to pay for a return but was charged single and to only pay £1.50 when we want to come down. Which we thought was strange as normally they take...More

Drove out to Llandudno largely to take a trip up in the cable car, but it was closed. No information displayed as to why. Weather was great. Couldn't get out of bed? Who knows? Try your best to find out if they are actually open...More

The cable car ride is amazing. The price is appalling! It’s not Alton Towers. Adults £10 single or £10.50 return! It is a mile long but they must be raking it in. The hour long+ queue on the steepest (65 degree) slope was horrendous! I’d...More
