Get ready for long queues regardless of buying tickets online. The process is ridiculously complex. You buy online, but you need to print it in an administrative office (?!). Then you need to sign a paper and validate your ticket. Just scan from the phone app, like the rest of the world. The view is nice, that's it.

This is an exceptional experience! Having realised we could only get to the cable car by car we quickly collected our tickets and waited for a very short time to board the first cable car. The whole set up is very easy to use and smooth! So glad we choose to wait for the sun down and collect even better photos and views than earlier in the afternoon!

A very nice visit to the Sugar Loaf. Important to print the ticket. I would recommend making a distinction between ticket prices for students, teenagers and people over 60 years of age because when you arrive at the ticket office you find out that these people pay half the price. We were 1 adult (full price), 1 person over 60 years old (half price) and teenagers 16-21 years old (half price). On the site, not knowing about this price reduction, we had to pay 4 full prices. After all, all wonderful. Few queues and breathtaking views.
