Rio: Christ the Redeemer Official Ticket by Cog Train

1. Rio: Christ the Redeemer Official Ticket by Cog Train

Go all the way up to the iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer by the Corcovado Train. The train rides through a railway inside Tijuca National Park, the largest urban forest in the world, making a unique view over Rio de Janeiro city. Enjoy an amazing ride on a train that takes you right up to the foot of the statue of The Christ, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and one of the most famous sights in Brazil. Besides admiring one of the most beautiful landscapes of the city, you will take a walk through Brazil's history. The Corcovado Railroad was the first electrified railroad in Brazil. Inaugurated in 1884 by D. Pedro II, it is older than Christ the Redeemer itself. In fact, it was the train that, during four consecutive years, transported pieces for monument’s construction. Your visit starts on the century-old electric locomotive, riding across the preserved Atlantic Forest, part of the Tijuca National Park. At the foot of the statue of Christ, you'll be able to take in the most beautiful view over the city, and see from above what makes Rio de Janeiro so special.

A beautiful experience, we had a sunny day after several cloudy days so there were many people taking advantage of the beautiful day. We went at the time of 12, we arrived half an hour before as they told us, nobody speaks Spanish, it is difficult to understand sometimes, the lines are very long but they run fast. The clean train, my children loved it, there is a place to eat but you can also take a snack, clean bathroom Before boarding again to get off. All very friendly. We got off almost at 2:30 p.m. and I noticed that the line to get on the train was very short, in case this information is useful to someone. overall good experience

It said arrive 20-30 mins ahead of time and because of us waiting for an Uber we didn’t arrive until 11:50ish (with a boarding time of 12-3pm) but we were able to show our vouchers and get on the next train that left at 12:20pm. Overall great experience! Also the ticket is round trip going up there and back down so hold on to your ticket!

Despite being a rainy day, I decided to go to the top. The company staff was nice and willing to change the ticket if I wished to. The weather turned bright for a few minutes when we reached the top - making it a great visit. The train ride was beautiful

Great experience. Definitely a good idea to buy in advance. Once you get to the ticket window they Just verify your information. (Identification). I would recommend this to see the views alone. Breathtaking views of the city!

Turns out the ticket was with expedited entry which wasn’t mentioned before. A most welcome surprise!
