Now, I've always had it in my head that cable cars are dangerous and extremely risky and I've kind of had somewhat of a fear of them. As we were ascending the hill upon which Genting stands, we stopped off at the skyway to take the cable car ride up to the summit.
Admittedly I was a little scared of the looming ride but I kept my fears to myself. Here we were queueing for the ride:
