The new Awana SkyWay began its new operations in August 2016 to ascend from Awana station to the final stop at SkyAvenue station in just 10 minutes, cruising at top speed of 6 metres per second.
The gondolas fly over key attractions at the resort, giving you a spectacular bird’s eye view from Chin Swee Temple to the future Twentieth Century Fox World Malaysia.
The old Genting Awana Skyway (formerly known as Sri Layang cable car) in Genting Highlands ceased operations on April 2014 to make way for the construction of a new cable car system.
The new Awana Skyway took 2 years to complete. The ascent from Awana Station (1,105 metres above sea level) to SkyAvenue Station (1,725 metres above sea level) is 620 metres.
The trip from Awana Station to SkyAvenue Station takes about 10 minutes.
