If in Llandudno a ride on the cable car is a must do activity for everyone. Old and young alike cannot fail to enjoy the ride above the trees and fells. The views are great.

The Chair Lift to the top of the Great Orme is a delight ! You get some fabulous views for camera or video and float above lovely scenery on the smoothest of runs. Even a friend who does not like heights could not wait to do it again. Absolutely safe. Then the top...view all of Snowdonia and the Irish Sea... More

My partner may not agree with this review as she's scares of heights and spend most of the trip with eyes closed!! Absolutely breathtaking views on the way up and such a peaceful ride. Very sturdy and no movement at all, if you are going up great orme then you must go up on these. We went up on these... More

There is not much to review. We came on the end of October and weather was lovely so cars were open, enjoyed view and little walk around when we got there and that we could get return car. Only and quite big downfall was price - single 9 quid and return 9.50. It was far too short to be worth... More

I took the Cable Car to the top of the Great Orme. The views were spectacular. I was able to take some excellent photographs of the scenery. If you are feeling energetic or just want to stroll back down on foot the walk from the summit is very picturesque. Well worth a visit.

Went on them today with a return ticket. 2 x adults, 2 x kiddies and 1 x under 2 (free) £27.00 in total. Had to split into two cars, no drama. No queue whatsoever, went straight on. Went to the top, round the visitors centre etc. Then returned back. Again no queue and no complaints here!

We had to queue for almost 30 min but it was worth it as the views were amazing. It takes around 20 min (return) but be aware of the fact that you can only pay cash for a ticket. It is 9.50 return ticket for an adult.
