GD8 Cabarceno I + II

Fascinating View of Bears and Gorillas
GD8 Cabarceno I + II

Since September 2016, visitors to the Cabárceno Nature Park in the Northern Spanish province of Cantabria can enjoy a view of the immense zoo from above. The panoramic windows of the gondola lift allow an unrestricted view of the animals. Cabins with glass floors are a special attraction. The ropeway consists of two independent gondola lifts. One forms a triangle with three angle stations. One of this ropeway’s special features is that each of the 22 support towers only has a roller battery on one side. That means that the 38 gondolas only run counter-clockwise on one side of the support towers. The ropes were partially pulled with a drone to avoid disturbing the animals.

Testimonial

Success for the entire park

The ropeways built by LEITNER ropeways are a true success. They have become an additional attraction in the park and our customers can explore the park from a different angle.
