As we gear up for the biggest night of the year, our Cableway social media feeds are being flooded with the questions, “Will the cable cars run on New Year’s Eve?” and “Will you be open on 31 December?”

The answer, our excited visitors, is that while our last car down on the evening will be at 9h30pm, the Cableway will not be open for New Year’s Eve celebrations at midnight.

That does not mean, however, that you cannot have fun at the top in the lead-up to 2019!

Join us for a final 2018 glass of bubbly at our Terrace Bar, enjoy the last meal of the year at our self-service Table Mountain Café and upload your New Year’s Eve selfie to your social media platforms for free at our Cableway WiFi Lounge.

Things to remember:

  • Our operations are weather dependent: Check what the weather is like and whether we are open or not by visiting our homepage, calling +27(0)21 424 0015 or emailing us at info@tablemountain.net
  • The last free shuttle to the Cableway is at 7pm: Please book an Uber or a meter taxi, or make alternative transport arrangements.
  • Dress warmly: It gets chilly at the summit of the mountain after sunset so please bring along a warm jacket or pop by our Shop at the Top for comfy tops.

Make it a New Year’s Day to remember!

Keen to start 2019 on a high note? You can enjoy having the Cableway and Table Mountain virtually to yourself without the crowds by booking our special Early Access Ticket.

This special ticket allows you to board the cable cars 30 minutes before we open to the public. Book them here.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
