Even as far back as the 1960s, the region around Songdo Beach in Busan ranked among the most popular tourist destinations in Korea. A new ropeway is now set to provide a fresh boost to the attractiveness of this region by offering an unforgettable experience for visitors and local residents alike. The new 10-passenger Busan Air Cruise is Korea’s first ropeway that directly crosses the ocean. A spectacular view is guaranteed. For the ultimate ride experience and an unhindered view of the sea, some of the cabins are fitted with glass floors.
The proven recovery system developed by Doppelmayr has been incorporated in view of this unusual location. Passenger safety and comfort take top priority for the customer as well as for the Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group. As a great deal of experience and know-how was required to implement this challenging project, both in terms of safety and technical design, the contract was awarded to Doppelmayr. In addition to the ropeway technology, installation and supervision, Doppelmayr provided the ropeway professionals who gave the customer help and advice during the preparation phase.
Songdo Doppelmayr World opened in Busan to coincide with the inauguration. Here, visitors can experience the world of ropeways and discover the history of ropeway technology.
