Genting Cable Car @ Awana SkyWay at Genting Highlands!!
Genting cable car or the new branding – Awana SkyWay, Resorts World Genting’s new state-of-the-art cable car system, is now open to visitors. The old Genting cable car (formerly known as Sri Layang cable car) in Genting Highlands ceased operations on April 2014 to make way for the construction of a new cable car system.
The new Awana Skyway took 2 years to complete. With a top speed of six metres per second, the 2.8-kilometre journey takes just 10 minutes!
An Easier Journey to The Top Genting Highland
You can park your car at the Awana SkyWay car park, where 4,437 car parking lots and 633 motorbike parking lots ensure plenty of parking for guests. From the car park, you can walk across the connecting bridge to the Awana SkyWay building. From there, you can access the Awana SkyWay cable car ride which will take you to the resort at the top of the mountain.
The ticketing counters are located at the Awana Station (Level 2, Awana SkyWay building) and SkyAvenue Station (Level 4, SkyAvenue).

Genting cable car @ Awana SkyWay operating hour
The Genting cable car @ Awana SkyWay will operate 7 days a week from 7:00am until midnight.
Apparently the new cable car is quicker and more efficient than the old one, and each of the 99 gondolas can carry 10 passengers maximum in a time. 10 of the gondolas are fitted with glass floors.
The new Awana SkyWay passes right by the Chin Swee temple, where a series of escalators takes you down to the temple. You can stop here using the same ticket to enjoy the panoramic views, or all the way up at the final stop at SkyAvenue station, to explore the attractions around Resorts World Genting.
