World’s Longest Cable Car in Valencia?
Is Valencia about to get the world’s longest cable car? That’s the plan being put forth by a group called Telefèrico Valencia. They’re proposing a cable car which would run for 13km along the Turia river bed and go by all the top architectural sights.
Each car would be able to seat 9-10 people, and there would be stops at the America’s Cup Harbor, the City of Arts & Scienes, the Torres de Serrano and the Bioparc.
What do you all think? Wait, before making up your mind, check out their short and unintentionally amusing promotional video featuring a cable car photoshopped in front of Valencia’s highlights.
Honestly, I’m not enthusiastic about the idea. Currently, the most annoying thing in the riverbed is the tourist packed train which chugs down the sidewalks way too quickly. But cable cars flying over my head might even be worse. Levante seems to be skeptical about the idea ever coming to fruition, just because this is the same group which tried to promote a huge artificial island off the coast (similar to the crazy island in Dubai).
