More about One Way Ticket - Up

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.

Opinions On One Way Ticket - Up

What the locals say about One Way Ticket - Up.

The only thing l can review is the QUEUE to try and get into the Cape Point. When we booked our funicular tickets online at no point did it say to allow 2-3 hours for traffic into the reserve or that there is no parking. Personally a shambolic mess! There should be a parking lot near the road and shuttle buses to the Cape Point. After 2,5 hrs in the queue as they were not allowing anyone in due to parking situation , we gave up, so we never got to use our funicular tickets. VERY UNSATISFACTORY and not well controlled. Instead we went to Jonkershuis and had a lovely lunch.

Unfortunately could not experience it due to load shedding. Waited for hours hoping for the power to return but it never did. Regards Ryan

Pathetic! They took 1 hour to print my online tickets purchased! They said there were no return tickets only to find them available at the counter!!!!

We had a wonderful time! And the service was outstanding! I bought the tickets online and put in the wrong date. The assistance I received in order to correct the date was great! As a result, my family and I ended up really enjoying our time there. We will definitely return. Keep up the great service!
