HONGKONG, January 10, 2018 — To cope with peak visitation during the Lunar New Year, Ngong Ping 360 will carry out scheduled maintenance and will extend its opening hours on 16-23 February, allowing more guests to experience one of the world’s 10 most amazing cable car experiences. The details are as follows.

The cable car service will be closed temporarily for scheduled maintenance on 31 January to 1 February (both dates inclusive).

To ease peak guest flow during the Lunar New Year, we will enable the electronic queuing system as needed. This will allow guests to plan their trip easily and save onsite queuing time. The company website also provides ticketing services. Guests can book tickets 14 days in advance of their visits (website ticketing is not available for same-day visits).
