The very smooth riding cable car rotates as it climbs the mountain, offering a picturesque view for all inside of it. If you're afraid of heights, stand in the middle, near the operator and the floor will remain still. Once you exit (near the gift...More

Hi There.The cable car does not swing but it does rotate very slowly allowing eveyone onboard to get the great views. The cable car does not operate in high winds. This is a MUST DO!!!
