I had a good time at this place, the view is fantastic. I recommend to go at night so you can enjoy the view of Caracas city better.

I went with my family during school vacation hence maybe it wasn't such a good idea.
To improve:
1.The line to take the gondolas was huge due mainly to Summer Camp Groups (they were several in a single line). In my experience with other similar places I have seen that a system is putted in place to give preference to small families over big Vacation Camps.
2.The line taking the gondolas back to Caracas was crowded due to a Lightning Storm. While I do appreciate their effort in keeping the public safe the waiting up there revealed major flaws in: structure (there is a major leak in the top roof of the building), Contingency system: I have no word to describe how nasty the bathrooms were.
3.None of the telescopes were working. This is a big one, as part of the main attractions is to be able to have a view from the top by using these devices.
The good stuff:
1.While waiting (above and below): the operators were nice and helpful.
2.While in the gondola: The trip to the top and the view was outstanding. The gondolas are in very good shape.
3. Up there: Once at the top there are a lot of options for food and small shops. The scenery and the view to the coast and the city are breathtaking. The installations and the main road are well preserved and there are good sings to warn people about preserving the park clean and preventing the public from doing unsafe activities such as climbing the walls and stepping to close to the cliff.

There is not really too much to do up there. Basically you can walk all the way up to the top until Humboldt Hotel (which sadly is still in restoration after all these years). I know there is an ice skating court but it was too crowded hence I cannot have an opinion on this one. Visitors can take a ride to the nearby small town: Galipan (which is a really nice place to visit, transportation works until 6 pm (cash only)) or if you prefer you can take a walk (sports/trekking shoes are a must if you choose this option).

My lesson learnt: Go early in the morning. Avoid crowds.

We spent the night and went up for a day, had a hot chocolate near the hotel at the top, and had a reservation in Miradas, a nice lodge

Nice place to enjoy with your friends and family. There are not many things to do, but the place itself is charming enough to enjoy a couple of hours there.

This cable car does provide an excellent view over the city of Caracas. Unfortunately once arrived on the top, there is not much more to do, than to go back down.
