How viable do you think this thing can possibly be? Tasmania just doesn't have the population or tourist density for something like this to be self sufficient. We're not in Europe. Look at the super duper chair lift thing down at Arthur's Seat. I imagine they probably get more tourists down there than Hobart does.

How many locals do you reckon are going to pay $45 (or whatever it's going to be) a ride up the mountain? How many tourists? Completely ignoring the environmental impact (and the fact that they may well blow up the top of Sky Rocket, the best pitch of grade 20 climbing in the world), my concern is that this will be built, found to be completely economically unviable, and then run by the tax payer.
