Who knew that the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway would be so popular almost 20 years later, since the days of its creation more than two decades ago.
Table Mountain is home to the Aerial Cableway, a tram with counterweight designs and long cables stretching from side to side, uniquely built to design.
Without a doubt, engineering of the Cableway was a feat on its own, almost two decades later, experts are looking for answers on how this funicular m.
Here are five facts that make Table Mountain Aerial Cableway so enjoyable. Brace yourself because the fifth fact is so fascinating you might fall off your seat.
1. The Aerial Cableway works on counterbalance
Table Mountain is high; experts had to redesign the Cableway to cope with the influx of visitors. Almost two decades later, the cable car supports upgrades.
Upgrades to the cable car are safety standards as well as some high-tech steel cables that pull the cable car both up and down – counterbalance in physics.
Not only do these durable, multiplied steel cables support an expanded weight, they also serve to double? No triple the number of passengers each car takes.
There’s more; each cable car is multiplied twice (X2) from the original design – take that engineer of the 1900s, the Aerial Cableway is so much better.
2. There are 3000l containers underneath each tram
Water is drinkable, but who could imagine drinking 3000 liters of water stored under each cable car? I know you can’t, so try preparing yourself for a splash.
Table Mountain Aerial Cableway stores liters of water underneath each cable car. Why? Because seventy passengers are inside these massive containers.
Cable cars also hold lots of water, enough for Table Mountain Aerial Cableway to provide strong support from high winds circulating the contraptions.
No need to panic, 重新设计的缆车形状可确保在南复活节期间或您的下一次桌山之旅中得到充分的保护.
3. 缆车完工 20 几年前
他们说旧时尚, 好几岁过时了? 桌山制造于二十多年前-比第一块诺基亚砖还要古老.
桌山的老式图片浮出水面, 与黑白图片大约同时. 这就是为什么我们现在喜欢–全彩.
旧缆车只能容纳几十个人, imagine waiting in line while the first twenty people lined up for a queue of 200 people – speed it up 20 years.
Today, the cable car hosts people from around the globe. There are lines for the ticket queue and a separate waiting area for those people without passes.
4. Major renovations occur each year
Amazingly, the Aerial Cableway happens to maintain the cable car through stable maintenance each year. No wonder they have an impeccable track record.
Each year around the same time, the cable car closes, but it’s not for good. Most people think that this time is temporary and that the cable car regularly repaired.
There is a lot of mystery around what happens at that time of year. Most speculate that the engineers are checking the cables, repairing the cable car but who knows.
Tickets for Table Mountain Aerial Cableway are unavailable that time around, so best buy your passes for the cable car before the next annual maintenance.
5. The floor on the cable car rotates 360 度数
Spooky as it may seem, 360度旋转的底座比看起来要机械化得多. 此地板设计为可旋转 360 全方位方向.
地板经过精心设计，可让游客欣赏开普敦周围的景致, 桌山未能计划的一件事, 是令人难以置信的观景台.
桌山架空索道正是提高桌山美景的急需之力. 下一个, 在开普敦看日落.
桌山空中索道设计令人印象深刻, 你印象深刻? 我知道我们是, 尝试找到下一个可用的缆车乘桌山时间.
综上所述, 空中缆车的设计不仅仅是 20 几年前! 那比开普敦的大多数青少年大. 成长, 一些成年人看到了旧空中索道的变化.
这些变化使客户容量增加了三倍. 空中索道旋转 360 在各个方向进行度数转换，可以从远足径上方观看桌山.
大多数人认为缆车由于每年的维护而在一年中关闭, but no-one knows why always closed during that time.
Some say that they are repairing the cables, checking the cable car, and doing some work. Either way, it is best to buy Table Mountain tickets – on our website.
