Just another cable car ride. Definitely fun but not worth the price. I preferred the museum at the other end of the cable car journey. Wouldn't really recommend it, do something better with your time and money.

At the low cost of £3.50, this ride with a view over Canary Wharf and the O2 Arena is so worth taking! I included this attraction to my day at Greenwich. I took the Thames Clippers boat from London Eye Pier, got off at North...More

Cost family of 3 £18 return and for a sunset view of the city, the Thames, we loved it. It was quiet so we had our own cable car. Staff are really friendly and helpful.

No. Either buy a ticket right there or use your Oyster card if you have one.
Is the Night flight cable car experience operating right now? Also we have oyester cards, do we need to put extra money on them to buy those tickets or do we just show to received discounted tickets?

Make sure you pay using the Oyster Card, or you will not receive the discount.
