Seeing Madrid from above is an underrated experience, and you totally need to go for it. It’s brilliant! Cars depart every few minutes and it’s literally the best way to get into Casa de Campo. The ride gives wonderful views of the Palace too, and there’s commentary on-board to make sure you don’t miss out on the important bits. At the very top of the station, there’s a nice restaurant you can eat at.

Nice one to get a view from the city and to visit Casa de Campo. The return ticket costs 6 euro and the journey no more than 10 minutes. Make sure the sky is clear to get the best views. Also, they might stop the service on days of heavy rain or storms.
Brilliant time!!!! Really loved seeing all the sights, went on with my sister and my mam, great experience for all the family would recommend to anyone visiting Madrid!!! Will deffo come back!! 6 Stars ******
Horrible experience. First of all, the cable car was built in 1969 and was not renovated since. The cable car stations are decrepit and look almost abandoned. The cable cars are old and creaky to an extent that half of them are not in use anymore. In fact one broke just before we were going to get on! The facilities are closed and most of them have not been tended to since the 70’s, and have been taped off! What makes it worse is that the waiting time for getting in the cable car is around 1 hour for an 11 minute ride. This is because the system which slows down the cable car dosent work anymore and all cable cars have to be stopped manually. The cable cars have little balance and rock side to side with an odd number of people. Workers pay little regard for safety, they let 5 people get into the 4 people cable car and do not even out the people in the cars, which makes the wait even slower. Prices are OK, 6€ per person for a round trip, but the company should be paying you for wasting your time and risking your life on the rusty cable car! I would avoid, but there is no other way to get up on the hill, unless you fancy an even longer hike. This service should be renovated or closed down instantly!!!
Opens at 12.00 midday. No-one really stops people jumping queues here, it seems, so if you arrive early and speak Spanish it's as well to ask "Quién es el último?" and be ready to resist elbowing from Dutch and German tourists. The Spanish visitors certainly noticed the latter, but politely ignored it. The attraction itself is a great experience and an interesting holiday activity. Lots of scenery, birdwatching and a nice breeze away from the sweltering city centre. There's even a cold drinks machine that sells leading brands well chilled for only 55 centimos -- it must be one of the best in Spain! The return adult fare of 6€ seems very reasonable too. We thoroughly enjoyed this trip.
Cool experience. Long waiting time. You should go past the queue to buy tickets. People in line are just waiting to get on, so make sure to buy tickets first inside the building.
