Hong Kong’s iconic Peak Tram now presents brand-new visitor experiences that begin right from the entrance, following the completion of its HK$799 million (US$101.8 million) revamp.
Five experience zones at the entrance keep visitors entertained while they are waiting to board. They include the Eye of Infinity sculpture erected in place of the attraction’s former water fountain, haulage display, a replica of the first generation tram, and a hyperreal immersive environment to inspire visitors to learn and protect biodiversity found at The Peak.
The upgraded Central and Peak terminals feature expanded air-controlled, covered queuing and waiting areas for up to 1,300 people.
The revamp includes an upgraded fleet of sixth generation tramcars manufactured in Switzerland. These vehicles are bigger, with 210 seats, reducing passenger waiting time by over 70 per cent. The new fleet adds 22 downhill-facing seats to capacity as well as ample space for wheelchairs or baby strollers.
Ceiling skylight allows more natural light into the cabins.
With these renewed experiences, a ride on the Peak Tram now costs a pricier HK$88 for an adult round-trip ticket.
