HONGKONG, 8 August 2019 – Ngong Ping 360 invests many resources in the maintenance of its cable car system. We thus have a maintenance schedule planned for the year to ensure that the system operates in an optimal state. The cable car service will be closed temporarily for scheduled maintenance on 3-5 September (both dates inclusive).
HKID cardholders whose birthdays fall during the maintenance period will be able to redeem their free birthday cable car rides on any other day in September 2019. Ngong Ping Village, VR 360 and Motion 360 will remain open during the period. Guests will be able to either purchase our Land and Sea Guided Tour at the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal or take other transportation to Ngong Ping Village.
Ngong Ping 360 will inform the public about the service suspension through notices on its website and at 14 MTR stations, including signs on the Tung Chung line and interchange stations, broadcasts at stations on the MTR Tung Chung line and notices at Tat Tung Road, Mei Tung Street and the Tung Chung Cable Car Terminal.
Guests can call Ngong Ping 360’s hotline on 3666 0606 or visit the official website at www.np360.com.hk for further information.
