The cable car ride was fun and the view was gorgeous. Try to get by the window or else it can get very stuffy in the car. I'd recommend it to get a nice view of the city and some scenery.

On our way down the mountain our cable car jerked to a halt and swayed back and forth. The power went out and we were stuck, swinging back and forth 2,000 feet in the air.
