Enjoyed all the rides especially the cable car ride as you could see some of Durban and the beach. The bumper cars were also another attraction we just enjoyed so much.

My teenager and I took the cable car ride. R25 per person. Great view but omw the experience wasnt fun. That thin little rail to hold you in? And those pauses when people get on and off? I was glad when it was over!
