General info: 

In the film Moonraker Bond meets Dr. Holly Goodhead at the top of Sugarloaf Mountain. As they travel down, Jaws stops the cables and takes the other cable car down to attack Bond. Bond battles it out with metal-mouth Jaws atop two cable-cars strung high above Rio de Janeiro's Guanabara Bay. Bond then knocks out Jaws before sliding down the cable with astrophysicist Bond girl Holly Goodhead, played by Lois Chiles. Jaws recovers and tries to chase down Bond with the cable car but ends up destructively crashing to the station.

The cable car has been updated from the one displayed in the 1979 film however.

Getting there: 

The address of the first cable car lower station is Avenida Pasteur, 520. Urca. If your journey starts from Copacabana or Ipanema you may take one of the frequent buses # 500, # 511 or # 512 or alternatively hire a taxi which takes you there for around 15 Real (€ 5).


The ticket to the top is about 53 BRL (~33 USD).

The cable cars operate daily from around 8 a.m. until 9 p.m. However, the ticket office is only open from 8:00 a.m. until roughly 8 p.m.
