The new Peak Tram dons the classic “Peak Tram Green”, paying homage to its history and earlier generations in the 20th century. With 210 passengers, it offers a 75% increase in capacity and its wider windows allow an unhindered, panoramic view of the world-famous Hong Kong skyline.

In addition to the modern style of the tramcar, the tram termini has undergone renovations, offering five engagement zones for passengers to enjoy. As they enter the Central Terminus, visitors are welcomed by the Eye of Infinity, a 10-meter-tall sculpture featuring a constantly evolving light display that embodies Hong Kong’s spirit of ascension.

Meanwhile, Go Wild At The Peak showcases the diverse wildlife found at the Peak with a wrap-around, full-immersion video experience. The centennial history of the Peak Tram since 1888 comes alive in dynamic experiences at “The Beating Heart,” “An Icon is Born,” and “Once Upon a Tram.”
