The views from the UK's longest cable care are absolutely stunning and the trip is over much too soon. Llandudno, the Great Orme, sea views, Snowdon etc We could even see the Isle of Man about 60 miles away!!

A wonderful way to travel up to and across the Great Orme, You can go there and back or get off after one way and join them again later for your return home, or you can use them one way and the tramway back again. What amazing sights you can see from the cars! The Irish sea spreading far and... More

Hadn't been on this since I was a kid, it was great to see the cable cars still running and they haven't changed a bit, really nice views and the stuff at the top was ok, but the best thing is the ride up and down.

We enjoyed the cable car ride up the Great Orme and back. Great views. Would recommend this experience. A touch on the expensive side but has to be done.

I was a bit nervous about travelling on this cable car, but it was amazing. It's silent up there and you get great views of the mountain goats on the cliff and the Victorian pier.

Absolutely loved these! I honestly could have spent hours just hanging in the air. Not cheap at £8.50 but so worth it for the magnificent views. Not at all wobbly in the wind as I feared it might be. My favourite thing of the weekend.

Excellent ride, great views Paid for a family ticket 2 adults 2 kids £22. On the return journey the attendant questioned our ticket, saying my son should have bought an adult ticket. Should have been mentioned at point of sale. When I offered to pay the difference, he told me to forget about it.
