Bud Light Seltzer Skyview At Hard Rock Stadium Is Now Open, First Pulse Gondola At Any Stadium In North America

Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens now has a new gondola open, called the Bud Light Seltzer Skyview.

The system opened ahead of Super Bowl LIV played at the stadium this past weekend.

It is the first pulse gondola to be built at any stadium in North America, according to Jason Jenkins, a Miami Dolphins Senior Vice President of Communications.

Hard Rock Stadium’s Skyview has 12 cabins, all built with glass floors and sustainable wood benches. Each cabin can accommodate up to six people at a time.

The Dolphins have previously said the system would cost around $3 million to build, with Austrian ski lift builder Doppelmayr constructing the system.

Rides are for entertainment purposes and will last 10 minutes, or 1,800 feet. Riders will have a view of the crowd below and the Miami skyline in the distance.

Hard Rock Stadium will soon host the Miami Open tennis tournament, and attendees will be able to ride the gondola. Crews began preparing the venue for the Miami Open just hours after the Super Bowl ended on Sunday, working into the early hours of the morning.

Of course. In Miami (County) we can’t have any transportation system for function.

1800 feet in 10 minutes is about 2 miles per hour. Wow, same as the Dolphin Expressway at rush hour.

It should be extended to South Beach and Wynwood, which makes as much sense as Metromover with consideration of speed and meagre capacity.

Funny, wonder why I never hear people in Brickell and Downtown complaining about the meager capacity and speed of the Metromover?

On a clear day, patrons will enjoy a glimpse of the Aldi around the corner.

patrons will also enjoy a glimpse of criminal activity in nearby Carol City.

Gee, I hope most of them won’t waste their time like you looking for criminal activity while riding on this thing.

This will be used only about eight times a month during football season. That is including events and hurricane and dolphin home games.

Hundreds of millions of dollars were spent to upgrade the stadium and built out the tennis center. If private investment wants to spend a few million more for a “gimmick”, that is fine.
We just had a highly successful super bowl that was awarded to Miami after Dolphins ownership committed the dollars and completed the upgrade to the stadium.
Their efforts should be applauded- not sure I understand the upset of some of the comments on this page.

The gondola sucks….it has no AC. The thing will be an oven during the summer or all year round depending if u believe in climate change.

Surprised that this isn’t common in stadiums as it’s an efficient way to move lots of people safely, not to mention the views and added guest experience.

? 12 * 6 = 72 people. Would take a long time to move a typical stadium full of people.

Ya I guess you would need to quadruple capacity to make a dent but it would be cool to have all 4 corners moving folks to various levels…

“it’s an efficient way to move lots of people safely”

Yeah.. nothing to worry about while you’re dangling a few hundred feet in the air on a wire.

Safer than driving on 95…

Stupid comparison. This is not built to move thousands of people from Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties to this stadium like I-95.

The point is it’s safer than most of our commutes…

Exactly what views are you talking about?

Even though this is a gimmick, these are legitimate forms of transportation in other cities and should be further utilized in Miami.

Please.. I wouldn’t want to be stuck dangling a coupla hundred feet in the air for twenty five minutes to an hour on this thing while somebody is trying to fix it.
