    A yan gondola I didn’t know they had one here! I thought only at keystone and the Qmc Tran at June. The one yan double here also from 1968! Would of been cool to see since it was one of the first!

      Yan built a few gondolas, but only one remains which is located at the water park in Denver, Colorado which was relocated from Circus Circus, Las Vegas. The other gondola which was never a real gondola was built at the Yan facility in Carson when Yan was developing its detachable technology.

        Peter has some pictures of that last remaining “Yandola” on this site (link below). Although called a gondola, this lift is essentially a jig-back tram with two groups of gondola cabins instead of two tram cabins, much like the new Royal Gorge Gondola in Colorado. Was one of the last Lift Engineering lifts built and was basically a one-off concept with mostly unique parts. A really interesting system with towers built into waterslides, a very large yet classic “yanbox” drive terminal, and much more!

    From what I read, the old Newport Double was sold to a Zipline tour in Namibia. The Mainline Double was sold to another small area around, but it’s yet to be completed.
