A quick look at some of the things that happened this week in the world of cable cars, urban gondolas, and cable propelled transit:
- The world famous Sugar Loaf Cable Car officially becomes a centenarian on Saturday. 5000 people are expected to come out and celebrate. If you happen to be in Rio de Janeiro that day, I should mentioned there will be 2000 free slices of cake.
- The future of proposed cable car to Mt. Wellington in Hobart, Tasmania, continues to be debated. 150 responses have been submitted in regards to the mountain’s draft management plan.
- If you’re looking for some spooky fun this weekend, the Singapore Cable Car is having an Angry Birds Halloween Party.
- And some more Halloween fun on a gondola, but this time in Germany. The Cologne Cable Car will feature “glowing pumpkins” on Halloween day.
