Cable Car Rides

 Join Us for an Old Fashioned Cable Car Ride to View Willow Glen Holiday Lights


There is no better place to spend the holidays than Willow Glen!  One of the best things about Willow Glen is the festive spirit of the nearby neighborhoods with the traditional yard trees and other fun decorations.  Returning for the holidays again this year is the fun, old fashioned cable car that you can ride to view the holiday lights!   


Cable car rides will begin and end at the Buffington House, 1224 Lincoln Ave.   Please note that we plan to hold all rides even if it is raining.

  • Please note there is an additional processing fee when purchasing tickets in advance online.  
  • When processing your order online please look carefully at the date and time you have selected to be sure you get tickets for the ride that you want!
  • If you are registering a large group, the quantity of seats available is shown on the registration screen so you can be sure you've selected a ride that still has enough seats for your group.  You will need to enter one person at a time, but you can check out in one transaction after you have entered all the names.  After entering the first person in your group, just click on the box that says "Save and Add Another Participant." 
  • We do not mail tickets, you will receive an email confirmation and your name(s) will be on the check-in list at the Buffington House, where the cable car loads and unloads.
