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 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 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.
The Cape Point boasts spectacular views from all around the top, the ocean views and the beautiful Cape skies at the tip of the Cape Peninsula. The Cape has the only Funicular in Africa (Flying Dutchman) and a restaurant where you can reserve a seat online. Words cannot begin to describe the views on Cape Point, one must just visit.
