Apart from offering visitors an exciting and novel method of travel, taking the Flying Dutchman funicular saves visitors an uphill walk from the car park to see the old lighthouse and enjoy the panoramic views.
The line runs from a lower station at the Cape Point car park, up an incline through dense fynbos to the upper lighthouse. The funicular leaves from the lower station every three minutes, comfortably accommodates 40 passengers per car, and can transport 450 persons to the upper lighthouse per hour, making it the ideal way to whisk closer to the lighthouse even during peak times.
The ticket system works fine, although slower than the old system at turn-stiles. You have to still ... - African Moon Adventures.

The ticket system works fine, although slower than the old system at turn-stiles. You have to still print tickets due to lack of cellphone signal at Cape Point and often you can't access tickets on phone. Serious lack of management in the whole park! I go there 3 to 4 times per week and it's a pretty sad state of affairs.
Stays in Cape Town. Did it on 16/12/2018 for the first time and really enjoy it. Absolutely beautiful and everyone very friendly and efficient!!

Easy to book and pay online. Could stipulate a bit more clearly that the return ticket includes a ride to the top and back on the product page. Walked right through to cart upon arrival. No queue. Cart was quick to go up. Cart was unfortunately halted on the trip down and we had to take a little bus. Thank you for providing alternative.

Good day Thoroughly enjoyed the fabulous meal and service at the restaurant. ***** I just feel that when booking customers should be told exactly where the restaurant is as we were under the impression one has to go up to the top so we booked the funicular which was not necessary for people not wanting to go to the lookout. Thank you.
