    Big Dissapointment! Never got to see the Christ the Redeemer!
    Wilfredo_P, Apr 2022
    The service was canceled as the train was out of service. I requested a refund and so far nothing. I pay 20 Reais -Uber-, going there; and 5 Reais to return by bus I got a second ticket -second payment-. I just received an email on Sunday, advising that the new date -Monday, April 4th, 2022 has been canceled as well! I am leaving Brazil on April 6th, 2022. I guess I will not complete my 7 Wonders of the World!
    Be careful - you cannot make changes.
    Amy_G, Apr 2022
    Don’t bother doing this. When we arrived, we were talked out of going up because it was poor visibility. The agent told us we could come back the next day. When we contacted the numbers she gave us to make the change, they said no cancellations, changes or refunds. It was lost money.
    Great View. Average Experience
    Shawn_S, Mar 2022
    There is no order. Total chaos . There is no advantage to these “skip the line “ tickets. You are assigned a train time upon arrival ours was one hour after arrival standing with kids in the sun waiting to ride up. And the afternoon arrivals seem to be less crowded than a morning arrival.
    NB: Check if you really need to purchase train tickets
    Margaret_M, Mar 2020
    We had pre-purchased these tickets for the morning. With traffic, we landed just after noon and presumably the tickets would not have been valid anyway. As it happens, our tour with C2Rio included van transportation right to the Christ the Redeemer statue area. We had to transfer to dedicated vans at the site and those tickets were included in the tour price. So, we did not use the pre-purchased tickets and were unable to secure a refund for them. A disappointing and unnecessary waste of money.

    Rained out
    Nicolau_F, Mar 2020
    The weather was really bad and it practically rained the entire time. The staff should not let people go up unless there is a decent view of at the very least, the Christ statue. I even tried to change the date but they made it very complicated to do so. Beware, if the weather is not good on the day of your visit, make sure you contact viator to change the date, otherwise it's not worth it.

    best quickest way to see Cristo Redeemer
    ahn, Feb 2020
    For those of you who does not have much time, who does not want to be locked in a group schedule, who wants to be independent, This ticket would be the best. Take Uber to & fro (in Rio, it's the cheapest quickest transportation) tram station. Get a ticket & a wrist band from a ticket booth. Go in front of every line. You are there to enjoy efficiently. Being at the tram station by 9am to beat the crowd helps as well (beat the humid hot weather as well by going early in the morning)

    nice
    akshay_v, Feb 2020
    I undertook Skip the Line Christ the Redeemer Admission Ticket. I was given preference during the train ride. It was very nice.
    Not worth it
    Irina_S, Feb 2020
    Skip the line means nothing for this atraction. You do not get a preferential entry any place but the initial ticket check. The entry to the train up and down, you are on your own. The lines for the initial entry are not that long, no more than 10 min wait. Ones you pass that point then you have to fight with bunch of people to get on the train. I was pushed out of my seat by a romanian guy that was part of a group, and nobody did anything, just standing and watching this guy draging me out of my seat and pushing me , almost falling on the ground. There is nobody to watch for anything and there is nobody to complain to. Where you need the "skip the line" entry the most is for the train, but you do not get it. On the way back I asked the person that was checking the tickets if I can use the skip the line entry and she said - this is not valid for the way down. Never had such a bad experiance as this one.
    Great morning activity
    James_D, Feb 2020
    Most enjoyable. The skip line “preferred” access was quite pleasant — included an air conditioned lounge with water and a clean restroom to wait in before escorted to front of line of next cable car. Go up in the morning, very chill.
    Highlight of our vacation!
    johnperlstein, Feb 2020
    This was a amazing experience! Our guide (Vera) helped us navigate the process, and the result was an easy trip on the train and incredible views from the summit. The site managers handle large crowds very well, Don’t miss this when you come to Rio!
    Skip the line option
    pennyletty, Feb 2020
    Absolutely happy we got the skip the line option. When we arrived, there was a pretty long line, we were able to go to the window, pick up our tickets a get to the front to board the train. The train ride up to Christ The Redeemer was very smooth and relaxing. We took the stairs (there was an elevator and escalator for those who needed it). Definitely go early. We went early and were able to take great pics without the crowd. By the time we left, it was quite crowded.
    No priority queue on way down
    rakeshd82, Dec 2019
    Good to have the ticket pre bought but there is no priority queue on the way down and people get tickets quite fast so comfortable to have but not necessary
    Visit on 12 December 2019
    Alexander_L, Dec 2019
    Tickets were easy to use, we were recognized by name with priority access upon arrival at the train station
    It works!
    feldmab, Dec 2019
    We bought the skip the line christ the redeemer admission ticket through Viator. Definitely worked. We picked the morning option. Got to the ticket booth. Showed them our paper work. They put wrist bracelets on us. Not speaking Portuguese, we weren't sure which line to wait on. There seem to be 3 lines. One for people with times (btw ours said 11:40), one for waiting line people and US!. Girl spoke some English. Told us to sit on bench and would be called. They motioned to us to come forward. We did. Got on the next tram. Would do this again!

    After a shakey start the train broke down we were able to arrange free tickets for the next day. This worked out to our favour because the weather was awful the day we should have ascended.

    Roger_W, Mar 2018
    It is really worth visiting but its not worth paying the extra to skip the line as we still had to wait 50 minutes for the next train. Also, they also allow too many people up at the same time so when you reach the statue its a bit crowded
