And travel

becomes an experience

Making more of a site by improving accessibility, taking an aerial trip over a natural park while preserving its ecosystem, offering a unique view of an exceptional place, offering new experiences to visitors, exploring an amusement park, connecting a peri-urban leisure area, reaching an island resort in a gondola lift, discovering a unique panorama from a big wheel … POMA’s ropeway transport infrastructure is enjoyable, fun, unique and spectacular, and brings tourism into another dimension.

Beyond its transportation function, ropeway transport can help to reinforce the attractiveness of tourist and leisure sites.

More than just a transport link, it is now one of the key parts of projects designed to provide visitors with new experiences. Every day, POMA demonstrates its ability to take the visions of its customers into account when redefining or extending their offer

 

By adapting the technology to intense or year-round modes of operation, as well as to locations in sometimes exceptional sites, POMA takes on every challenge to design new visitor experiences, with sometimes extraordinary solutions that require expertise and experience.

Amusement parks

The transport solution within the park means that its iconic attractions are only one step away!

 

Many amusement and animal parks have a gondola lift to make it easier to get around the site, especially for families. The new experience of discovering the park, its animals or its attractions from a new angle during an aerial trip will be popular with visitors. More than a means of travel, the gondola becomes a must-do for the visit.
And to stand out, in line with the theme of each park, there are numerous designs and custom options that enhance the journey through the air, such as panoramic glazing, glass floors, family cabins, semi-open structures, decorative lighting, etc.

Accessing a site

Ropeway transport installations quickly spread from the mountains to facilitate access to historic or tourist sites situated in hard-to-reach high places, as seen with POMA’s project in Badaling, which, as early as 1987, opened up access to the Great Wall of China, or the project in Huashan, which climbs a steep slope with a significant elevation difference. They rapidly spread along the coasts too, linking sites over different sea inlets, on an island, as is the case in Sacheon or Mokpo in South Korea, or even in the heart of preserved tourist destinations, as is the case with the funicular railway of Enshi in China.

Gondola lifts and funicular railways are alternative and ecological solutions for fast access to observation points, tourist sights and attractions, places of worship and of historical interest… In addition, passengers enjoy an experience in itself during the trip: a unique and effortless panorama of the site.

A different viewpoint

Sometimes travelling by ropeway is an experience in itself. An alternative to boat rides, hiking or road shuttles, a trip through the air with panoramic viewpoints allows you to discover a site, town or city in a different way. All the major tourist towns and cities now have increasingly impressive observation wheels. POMA is particularly well-known for its production of observation wheel capsules, which provide an enthralling experience, hundreds of metres up in the air.
