In one of the highest rides at the Fair, cabins holding four passengers each are suspended on cables 113 feet in the air. The cables run between the Korean and Swiss pavilion; a one-way trip covers 1,875 feet, takes four minutes and provides panoramic views not only of the fairgrounds but of Manhattan Island. Tickets may be purchased at booths near the two pavilions.
* Admission: adults 75 cents on way; children 35 cents on weekdays, 50 cents on Sundays and holidays. Cars leave every 12 seconds.


Passengers ride high across the fairgrounds in cable cars for a spectacular view of the Fair.

Each car holds four people; the cables run across the center of the Fair between terminals near the Swiss and the Korean pavilions, reaching a maximum height of 113 feet. Cars leave every 12 seconds; one-way trip takes about four minutes. Admission is charged.
