Tin Can Cable Car is a really novel way to recycle a drinks can! With easy-to-follow instructions that will guide you through some simple assembly and electrical wiring, you can have your cable car up and running in no time.

First assemble the wheel support and the motor housing, and then join them together. Complete your Tin Can Cable Car by decorating your drinks can with the included stickers and attaching it to the motor housing. Your cable car is now ready to go!   Set up the cable string on the staircase or in your bedroom (between two chairs works well) and then switch on. Your Tin Cable Car will zip up and down, just like a real cable car.

Here’s some fascinating facts about cable cars:

  • The biggest cable cars are double-deckers that can carry up to 200 people each!
  • The longest cable car in the world is the Tianmen Shan cable car in China. It is

7455 m from one end to the other.

  • Some cable cars have rotating cars to give passengers a better view
