The closest thing to flying
Lift typeAerial tramway
Just like being in a helicopter cockpit. Floor-to-roof glazing and the spacious interior of the cabins make this ride unforgettable.
The customer wanted an aerial tramway cabin that would make the trip to the summit feel like flying in a helicopter. The CWA engineering team set to work on the basis of sketches provided by our in-house designer. The result: the Dragon Ride. Its panorama windows provide an unhindered view of Lake Lucerne and the Matterhorn. And the “helicopter pilots” sit lower down in their cockpits at either end of the cabin. The Dragon Ride has been flying visitors from Fräkmüntegg direct to the summit station Pilatus Kulm since April 2015.
