I love the ride up to the stations. I believe it is a bit over priced but it is worth it for the view. The company is minting money by having the photographers at every point. I can take better pictures then them. However, it is a must to do attraction in Langkawi the weather gets fogy really quick. If that happens make sure you wait until it clears and don't get upset and come down. Once you get the view it is great!

Went there on the 3rd June 2014 and it was raining cats & dogs, luckily me & my wife able to buy the tickets and board the Cable Car.
While queueing up along the "snake like" waiting lines, there are a few wall-fans not being switched on and it was extremely HOT. I think the Management must be more alert with customer needs and upon reaching half-way, there's photo shooting session that seems to be NO proper & clear EXPLANATION given by the staff manning the photo-shooting booth , as most of us lining up thought the photo taken is only for the Cable Car company statistic purposes or taken for memories.
But at the end of the queue lines, then all doubts are being answered - the photo taken is for sales purposes,which the prices offered are VERY high and even though the customer can buy it on voluntary basis, but still it's a "forced selling tactics".
In view of the above, PANORAMA LANGKAWI Sdn Bhd - which is the managing company for the Langkawi Cable Car must seriously review my comments above, correct the methods being used and improvise further in order to lure more customer to use the service !

We visited the attraction as a family, not all 6 adults were entirely happy with the prospect of travelling to such a height. But were persuaded to by the more daring of us!
We joined the back of a long queue where we were approached by a member of staff offering a fast track option - 50RM pp to jump the queue. Given the wait time was 90 minutes it was a no brainier. We were given a lanyard to identifying us and a bottle of water. When you approach the cable car they ask you to leave the water!
We joined the ride and the steep climb commenced, it goes quite fast, or at least it appears so. The weather quickly changed and we found ourselves in the middle of a storm. Thunder set in, quickly followed by lightening. We were about halfway to the first station when the lightening struck the cable (it's a single cable BTW!). We spent the rest of the journey reassuring ourselves everything would be ok, although we were all scared and wanted it to be over.
There was little point getting out at either of the two viewing platforms given the mist.

It was a relief to make the journey down, not helped by the empty cars that passed us. We thought the rides had been suspended due to the weather. Not sure what the policy is on storms.

Safely back on the ground we headed to a Japanese restaurant in the Oriental village. The food was very nice and reasonably priced.

The village was mainly tourist shops with a few attractions; rabbits, horse & cart ride. All very family orientated.

I'm sure the experience would have been very different with better weather.

Hello,

Thank you for visiting us. We are sorry regarding the lightening incident. Weather in Langkawi in can change rather quickly and during such event we will continue to bring down visitors to base station if condition is permissible. Theoretically and in the real world , being inside the gondola is safer than being on the middle station or top station. We understand such event will left us scared too but rest assured, our system is designed to withstand tropical climate by esteemed company, Doppelmyr.

Once again, we are deeply sorry because you visit did not left nice experience. However we hope you will visit us again. Perhaps during dry season.

I went to Langkawi in August 2012 this review is a little late. But the cablecar was an awesome ride. Its a little expensive but totally worth it. The view is to die for.

The Langkawi Cable Car is a must if you are visiting Langkawi. Make sure to go on a clear day so you can get amazing views of the island. We were told there was a wait, however once we went through the line it moved very quickly. The Cable Car ride took us up the hill to the first stop where the views were great. As others have mentioned the Sky Bridge was closed for maintenance. After the first stop you can get back on the Cable Car and finish on up the hill to another great view. The whole overall, experience was very organized and the views are worth the trip. I would recommend to anyone visiting Langkawi.

Hello,

Thank you very much for recommending us. For your information, during low season waiting time is less than half an hour or even lesser. We hope you will come again when skybridge is open to public.
