old fashioned cable car, incredible queue, access complicated - it looks like someone thought how to make it the most inconvenient

The cable car is great. Beats hiking up to ridge trails. Buy your ticket downtown on kuprowski street or at kiosk at dirt upper level. The long lines you see when you get there are for those wanting to buy 1/2 priced tickets. Its worth...More

We just bought tickets at the bottom of the cable car entrance. There was no queue in late June. I believe you can also book online but then you are risking the weather which can be very wet in Zakopane.
