In 2006, a long course bridge has been built. To get to this suspension bridge you need to head over to the highest point of the ride, at the level 2 stop. From here you walk down a path for approximately 100 meters. At the end of the path, the suspension bridge starts. During rough weather operators will temporarily close the Cable Car. The best time to visit the attraction is during clear weather, and this is usually in the early morning. Visiting hours are Monday – Thursday from 10am till 7pm, Wednesday 12pm – 7pm and Friday – Sunday, Public & School Holidays 9.30am – 7pm. Costs are 30RM for adults and 20RM for children.

Sometimes the attraction is closed to public due to maintenance. In that case you cannot enter the Cable Car. Often maintenance means the attraction is closed the whole day or even longer. Check the official website to find out whether there is maintenance planned to avoid disappointment.
