Based on the How to leave Hong Kong International Airport by foot question, I know that leaving Hong Kong International Airport on foot during a layover can be done but isn't easy. However, from an answer there, I've discovered the Wikivoyage page on Lantau Island, and specifically the cable car up the mountain.
Assuming my flight is on time, I'll have a 6 hour layover in the airport on a Saturday evening (roughly 6pm to midnight). I could just hop on the express train into the city, but I've spent a few days there before, so I was wondering about doing something different. The Ngong Ping 360 cable car looked interesting and nearby, so I was wondering about that.
However, the Wikivoyage page mentions potentially long lines, which makes me worry that by the time I've got out and got there, I might not have time. I'm also not sure if it's open late, and how good the views are at night.
That leads me to wonder if I can visit there. Specifically, on a 6 hour layover, is there enough time to get to the cable car, queue, go up and get back? Can you get there and back in that time by public transport? Is it open late enough? Are the views ok at night?
