The recent decline in oil price as the major source of revenue in Nigeria has posed significant negative impact on the national economy intensifying problems of unemployment, food insecurity and poverty. In a bid to seek alternative source of revenue, maximise the exploitation of available resources in wealth creation and provide possible solution through tourism sector, this paper argues the need to promote tourism in Idanre.  It therefore modelled the potential for modern ropeway (cable car) system, amusement park and resort in Idanre Hill. The study made used of secondary and primary data. Secondary data were published information, Google Earth (software) images and Geographic Information System (GIS). These were used for spatial modelling of the landscape. Primary data involved site direct field observation and reconnaissance survey to investigate the feasibility of ropeway system on the landscape. Modern cable car system (ropeway), amusement park and resort were thus identified as viable source of centripetal (pull) force that can be accommodated in the study area and capable to draw tourists across the world.
