by Coachella Valley | May 17, 2016 11:50 pm

Palm Springs Aerial Tram Way included in CNN’s “10 of the world’s most amazing cable car experiences!

That’s right Coachella Valley…..Our very own Palm Spring Aerial Tram Way ranks up there with cable cars from Switzerland, Bolivia, Brazil and even New Zealand! The world’s largest rotating cable car opened in 1963 and connects the floor of the Coachella Valley with the top of Mt. San Jacinto. It’s one of just three rotating cable cars in the world — the others are the Titlis Rotair in Switzerland and the gondola at Table Mountain in South Africa.The tram in Palm Springs was first suggested in 1935, but World War II and the Korean War forced the project to be shelved.Construction eventually started in 1960, with helicopters used to lower parts into place.

World’s Largest

The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway—the world’s largest rotating tram car—travels over two-and-one-half miles along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon, transporting riders to the pristine wilderness of the Mt. San Jacinto State Park. During your approximately ten-minute journey, tram cars rotate slowly, offering picturesque and spectacular vistas of the valley floor below. Once you reach the Mountain Station—elevation 8,516 feet—enjoy two restaurants, observation decks, natural history museum, two documentary theaters, gift shop and over 50 miles of hiking trails.
