The laws of physics your child studies at secondary school may not catch his or her attention but the applied physics you will all find in the cable car over Madrid's huge Casa de Campo park should inspire a lot more excitement. More than just a means of transport, it's a cool ride up to 40 metres (131 feet) above ground from Paseo del Pintor Rosales (Metro Argüelles) over the Manzanares River to the Casa de Campo where there is a restaurant and children's play area. You can also make your way from here to Casa de Campo attractions such as the Madrid Amusement Park and the city zoo. The cable car runs during daylight hours daily except between October and December when it's open at weekends and holidays only. Pets in carriers, baby prams and even bicycles are allowed as well. A truly extraordinary adventure to experience Madrid from a bird's eye view.
