Nice enough, gives a different perspective of the park but you can't see as far you think you might be able to due to trees restricting the view. I hopped on here for a bit of a rest from walking and it is a slightly quicker way to get to the other side of the park.

I was first more than 10 years ago in the old one before it closed.
After many years it was renewed a couple of years ago but with the main rail crossing the park length only.
The panorama is ever suggestive and can finally show to you the real big size of this splendid park!
I strongly suggest it being a way to refresh yourself too !

I hope they could decide to build up again the other 2 parts which can carry you along the other park areas with the Observatory too.

Cable railway was recently renovated and it 100% XXI century-compliant. You can ride in a cabin (good if you have some luggage or small children with you) or on an open seating (good for taking pictures). The railway is very quiet and gentle, aerial views of Park Śląski are calm and relaxing and overall experience is very pleasant.
The trip is around 10+ minutes one way (Śląskie Wesołe Miasteczko to Stadion Śląski). From Stadion stop it's around 15 minutes walk to Planetarium.

When in park that is one of the best attractions, see everything from above. Recently refurbished and smaller in route as previously but I think they will get it to its former glory.

Elka is a great experience for the whole family. It is a bit scary at the beginning, but after a while you will really enjoy it. Ella has a 3 stops within a triangle shaped track. I think the journey is around 10 miles in total. Very pleasant ride.
