Sensor system prevents congestion at the end of the lift
With the Zorb Lift, Sunkid offers an innovative means of transporting so-called Zorb Balls. An example of the smooth operation of this special lift can be found at the Ski Dubai indoor ski slope in the United Arab Emirates. Over many hours of operation every day and over a length of almost 30 meters, the Zorb lift transports the balls, which are over three meters in size, uphill.
A special feature is the sensor system at the end of the lift: Only as soon as a zorb is removed from the top, the next ball is fed in. Thus, an uncontrolled ejection or a jam at the top of the lift is not possible.

- Length: 29.5m
- Gradient: 21,3%
