Emirates Air Line cable car offers visitors to Kidtropolis a discounted fare of £2 (less than half price). To redeem this exclusive discount, all you need to do is show your Kidtropolis ticket at the Emirates Air Line terminals. So why not make your event day extra special!
The cable car takes you handily from North Greenwich and The O2 Arena nearby (Jubilee line) to the ExCeL London campus (and Royal Victoria DLR station) connecting two of the biggest event and entertainment venues in the UK.
