Awana SkyWay : Glass-floor Gondola
We were up in Resorts World Genting again last weekend. I know it’s insane but there are so many new stuffs to explore here that we just can’t resist especially since it is the school holidays and takes only an hour drive from our place.
We stayed at Awana Genting Resort this time around so we took the opportunity to ride the new Awana SkyWay up to SkyAvenue. For a more spectacular experience, we decided to try the glass-floor gondola.
Unlike previously, the new Awana SkyWay has a top speed of 6 metres per second, and is able to carry 3,000 passengers one way every hour hence the reduced waiting time.
There are 99 standard gondolas and 10 glass-floor gondolas that can seat ten and six passengers respectively.
The glass-floor gondola ride costs RM50/pax per way.
It is truly an exhilarating experience to get a bird’s eye view from beneath our feet.
The boys were very brave and not afraid of the height at all. They were even game enough to sit on the glass-floor.
Would you dare to ride on this glass-floor gondola?
Imagine sitting here looking at the ground below you moving..
The gondolas fly over key attractions at the resort, giving passengers a bird’s eye view of the surroundings including the site of the highly anticipated Twentieth Century Fox World Malaysia.
It is recommended to ride this glass-floor gondola during daytime when it is bright to fully enjoy the scenery.
This new Awana SkyWay also allows us to stop midway point where we can disembark at the Chin Swee station at no extra cost and explore the Chin Swee Caves Temple and its scenic surroundings.
Just remember to keep your cable car ticket as you will use the same ticket to continue your journey either to the peak or to the Awana Station.
I’d say you must try it at least once in your lifetime
To end this post, as usual, here is the video of our Awana SkyWay Glass-Floor Gondola adventure:

I am a mother to two boys; Ethan and Ayden and a wife to Darling William. I'm a stay at home mum who blogs to break the monotony of life and to avoid feeling jaded. Would love to get to know all the Super Mommies and Daddies and Babies or Singles out there with the hope that we can learn more from each other. Most of all, I am a happy person, and I hope YOU are too.

I wouldnt mind give the cable car a ride. At least once.
I think I have been on a glass bottom gondola up genting before but the ticket is not this expensive.
I’ve tried glass floor cable car at Hong Kong :)
Eeeeeeee…I takut!!! Not like that before but now that I am growing old, I have developed that phobia, that fear of heights. Even crossing the road on that pedestrian bridge from Mid Valley to Gardens, with all the cars zooming past underneath, my legs turned into jelly! :(
Wow!!! I love this glass floor rides to see the beautiful green below. I must visit this gondola.
DO NOT buy the glass cable car ticket. Yes, at first it might sound and look enticing. But honestly speaking, the glass floor allows you to look at absolutely nothing interesting. The view down there isn’t scenic. TRUST ME. It’s just acres of rain Forrest littered with rubbish. Here’s another reason to discourage you from buying glass floor cable car tickets. The wait is long !
For every 10 normal cable cars, there is only 1 glass floor cable car available for service. So if you thought your queue is short and your waiting time is equally short, think again. If you want a short queue and a short waiting time, I strongly recommend the express tickets. Why spend the extra money for the temporary thrill of looking at nothing?
