Elka cable car


Elka cable car has been one of the biggest attractions in the Park for decades. The residents of different parts of the country come to Chorzów with their whole families to take a ride in the only lowland cable car in Poland. In September 2013, after a 7-year break, Elka was re-launched.

The route of the cable car

The route of the cable car (2200 m) remained the same – from the Silesian Stadium to the Amusement Park. During a ride, one can see e.g. the Rose Garden, “Kapelusz” Ehxibition Hall, General Jerzy Ziętek promenade. The route runs through a very attractive part of the Park. Enjoying the landscape is the reason and at the same time the greatest advantage of our Elka. Elka cable car is also the only cable car in Poland that operates in a mixed system – gondola-chair. The chair consists of 4 seat, whereas 8 people can travel in one gondola. It is a passenger-friendly system (convenient for disabled people who move using special equipment – wheelchairs, walkers).
