Beastly good view

With the construction of the first 8-seater lift for the Safari park Kolmården, the largest animal park in Northern Europe, Doppelmayr created a particularly public-appealing project in Sweden – and managed at the same time the entry into a new market segment.

The Austrian company Doppelmayr is a reliable partner in the implementation of innovative transportation solutions. The Vorarlberg flagship company offers solutions not only for the traditional transport of skiers to the Swedish mountain peaks, but highly efficient, modern and environmentally friendly transport systems for urban and tourist environment. For several years Doppelmayr has been operating a branch in Sweden and has regularly been able to win contracts for the construction of ropeway installations especially in ski resorts.

Doppelmayr opened in Safari park Kolmården a gondola lift with 78 gondolas, wherein park visitors can hover silently over the spaciously created animal enclosures. The silent approach to the animals of the safari park, including lions, bears, wolves and moose, allow visitors totally new perspectives in wildlife viewing. Per hour 1,360 passengers can be transported this way, since eight passengers find space in each gondola. The gondolas have a travel time of almost 30 minutes. Thanks to special towers, the passengers are transported in zigzag through the park - a technical innovation from Doppelmayr.
