The Kraul Big Cable Car Kit is modelled on a real-life mountain funicular, this fantastic cable car will travel across the room, or from tree to tree at a gentle pace or go full speed down into the valley! Hours of fun indoors or out. Assembly 10 years, play from 5 years. Comes with 2 x 20m of string.
How does the Big Cable Car work?
The Big Cable Car Kit consists of a gondola that you and your child/children put together. A cable string is supplied that will need to be fixed to 2 points. You decide where!
Fixing: The cable (string) is tied to 2 points; one at each fixed stationary point so that there is a slope between them.
Operation: The pulling string is attached to the gondola and then to the higher of the 2 points of the cable string. Pulling the pulling string will cause the gondola to ride up to the highest point. Letting go of the pulling string will cause the gondola to travel down to the lowest point. The gradient of incline of the cable will decide the speed at which the cable car travels!
This is the educational and fun aspect of this kit. Children will learn from experimenting. How fast can the make the cable car go?
Do I need to buy the Winch/Station as well?
The Kraul Big Cable Car Kit will work independently – the Winch/Station is an add-on item, but is not a necessity. An idea is to buy this later once Cable Car has been played with to re-ingnite interest and extend possibilities. We also have a complete set available Big Cable Car Shuttle Service – this includes 2 x Big Cable Cars and Winch/Station.
