Hong Kong’s popular Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Ride will be suspended for about three weeks starting from September 2, 2013.
After several incidents in previous years, the Ngong Ping 360 management decided to take a proactive approach and take precautious measures. Ngong Ping 360 has added two additional maintenance programs to their regular maintenance schedule this year. The first added additional maintenance program took place in March 2013 and involved the replacement of the system’s haul ropes. Ngong Ping 360 had to shut down its service for about a week.
The second added additional maintenance program is now scheduled for the beginning of September 2013. At present it is planed that the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car attraction will be closed for three weeks starting from September 2, 2013. Experts from Europe will carry out comprehensive checks on the complete cable car system as well as the shifting of the track rope for the entire system.
In addition, the Monkey’s Tale Theatre in the Ngong Ping Village will be closed as well. Starting from September 2, 2013 the Monkey’s Tale Theatre will undergo renovation and refurbishment. Guest can be looking forward for some value-added and brand new attractions later this year.
Other attractions such as Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, or Ngong Ping Nature Centre as well as the Ngong Ping Village remain open during the replacement and testing period. Visitors have the options to visit the attractions either by taxi or bus. If you decide to travel by taxi expect to pay around HK$ 180. As an alternative, you can take the New Lantau Bus No. 23. For more information about ticket prices and schedule please refer to the New Lantau Bus No. 23.
