The Llandudno Cable Car is an attraction in the seaside resort of Llandudno in Conwy County Borough, Wales. The cable car runs along the Great Orme spanning a distance of one mile forty feet (1.622 km) exactly. The cable car was opened in summer 1969, and has been operational ever since. The cabins give views of the Irish Sea looking over to Rhyl and the Isle of Man, as well as the Snowdonia National Park. There are currently 20 cabins in service, which leave each station at approximately one-minute intervals. The cabins are painted in red, yellow, orange, light blue and purple. The cable car is now owned by Kinetics Industrial Ltd. The highest point from the ground is around 80 feet (24.38 m). Nine pylons support the cable.
I had the misfortune of being coerced into riding the cable cars up to the Great Orme, we were charged an eye-watering £25 return for the privilege which seems a tad excessive. Once you're actually up and away the views are spectacular if you can see much whilst hiding behind your hands as I was. Still £25 is a cheap price for a re-evaluation of all your poor life choices that have led to you being stuck halfway up a mountain in a cable-car, bargaining with whatever creator you believe in that if they see you safely across you almost certainly will lead a better life from here on out. Needless to say i caught the tram back down.
Brilliant ride breath taking views well worth it plus if you do return trip it is only 50 pence more. Reason for that is of weather changes and cars have to stop running you only loose 50p. £10.00 single £10.50 return. No brainer get the views both ways.
If you are around Llandudno and walking to the Great Orme summit then you need to take the cable cars back down. The view is spectacular and something to not miss. The price for a single is £10 whereas a return is £10.50 which doesn't make sense. It only lasted a few minutes so probably worth the return fare and then walk back down or up to the summit again. Definitely worth a visit.
Really good experience I don't like heights but really enjoyed the ride. Lovely views ice-cream and kids playground at the top. Pub too. Next time we might try the tram
If you have time to wait in the queue it's definitely worth a trip. Enjoy the experience of the views as you are in the car as well as when you reach the top. Been on the cable cars a few times over the years.
Great views. Only thing is we had a buggy with us and it's a hindrance then
Fantastic, our 3rd time here. Queues were a bit long due to school hols. Highly recommend catching the sunset over the Great Orme.
My partner and I made the long journey from Rhyl to Llandudno a month ago to ride on the cable cars. We got there and they were closed. No reason. No signs to explain why. It was a lovely, sunny day, the slightest of breezes in the air. We couldn't understand why the closure. Best to check they're open before making any long journeys.
We enjoyed the cable car ride here. It gives amazing birds eye view of the Great Orme and surrounding areas. The ticket office here only accepted cash. Luckily we had cash just enough for a return ride. Our family managed to board a single car on outward journey but during return we were told that because of bad weather we have to be in two different cars. It shows that the staff are safety contious and their priority is passenger safety.
The cable cars are absolutely wonderful! The views are breathtaking and it goes really nicely and slowly so it's not over too quickly.. for anyone who hasn't been in one I would most definitely recommend them.. it's a brilliant experience
Pricey, long wait, terrifying (if like me you're scared of heights) but worth it. A gorgeous view.
