Doppelmayr in Macau


gondola as a hotel attraction
tourismus

The new and luxurious Wynn Palace casino resort in Cotai, Macau, opened at the end of August, 2016. It offers its guests a very special technical attraction: A gondola line takes guests to the splendid casino and hotel.

It is not only about pure transport, though. The unique, air-conditioned and comfortable Sky Cabs allow for fantastic views from heights up to 100 feet and turn the ride around the eight acre Performance Lake to the hotel and casino a memorable experience. The cable transport system implemented by the DOPPELMAYR/GARAVENTA Group in Macau is a class all by itself: A detachable gondola line takes visitors to the heart of the Wynn resort in cabins accommodating six passengers each. The installation features an extraordinary layout, an industry first.

 

The line is circular, going around the eight acre Wynn Palace Performance Lake on which a breathtaking watershow is shown. The accompanying music is also played in the gondola cabins; the view from 100 feet above makes the ride a perfect experience. The cabins are equipped with air conditioning, LED lighting, a communication system as well as surveillance cameras for top security and comfort. The dragon towers are outstanding features: They do not only serve as cable towers but also as lucky charms that bring good luck to the visitors of the casino.

 

Custom tower designs with cable deflection allow curves, facilitating rides around the lake. The noise and vibration concept of the towers and stations was especially designed for the costumer. It guarantees an exceptional smooth ride, quiet operations and contribut substantially to an enjoyable and undisturbed stay at the hotel and casino. For five years, Doppelmayr Macau Limitada, a 100 percent member of the DOPPELMAYR Group, will be in charge of the technical operation of the Wynn Palace Sky Cab.
