A chairlift is a type of transport ride that has passengers sit inside cars that dangle from wires whilst being moved to another station in a park.


Cars hang from a steel cable which runs continuously from one end of the chairlift to the other and around large turnaround wheels at each end.

Other Information

  • This ride is commonly used to transport guests up and down large hills and cliffs, because of its high maximum height.
  • Increasing the Chairlift's speed can dramatically increase the ride's excitement rating. This will increase the number of guests who are interested in riding a chairlift and will simultaneously reduce wait times as the ride duration will decrease.
  • Unlike most transports, inclines neither increase nor decrease the speed of the car.
  • Switching to Ski-lift Chairs will increase excitement.
  • Chairlifts cannot be constructed in a loop around the park.
