We walked down the windy roads into what seemed to be the expensive shopping area, we walked to konak pier and ate lunch there before continuing walking out to what turned out to be huge fair grounds.

The idea is to stand on the circled feet, wait for the little glass car (about the size for 3-4 people max), and jump in for the trip up the hill. Then remember to jump back out at the top.
