The previous Awana Skyway, which was built in 1975, ceased operations after 40 years on 1 April 2014 to make way for the construction of this new cable car system. It was Malaysia’s first cable car system.

Although it took some time for the new Awana Skyway to be ready, the wait is worthwhile as visitors can now enjoy the thrills and convenience of this new system.

Take a look at the breathtaking view of the 130-million-year-old rainforest surrounding Resorts World Genting from the gondola!

The 2.8 km-ride takes just 10 minutes.

Passengers have the option of disembarking at two stops, namely the Chin Swee station 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.

It may not be for people with acrophobia, but if you choose to give it a shot, you'll surely enjoy every single moment on this new state-of-the-art cable car
