Ropes Courses unveiled several adventure attractions within its 5,000 sq. ft. (465 sq. m) booth at IAAPA such as eight Clip ’n Climb climbing walls, a kid-friendly Sky Tykes and a two-level Sky Trail aerial attraction complete with an astonishing 180º curved Sky Rail for all show attendees to observe and try for themselves.
The integration of the curved Sky Rail largely allows for smooth travel at 8-12 mph (13-19 kph) from one part of the Sky Trail to another over any other attractions that may be featured at a given facility and provides participants with a longer ride in a smaller amount of space. The Sky Rail itself operates between two levels which requires participants to make their way through the Sky Trail and up the incline in order to take another ride. This ultimately leads to more time spent on the course and more time enjoyed onsite at a facility which often equates to additional purchases made such as food or beverages. The curved shape is also designed to complement a client’s needs and overall space allowance so that the same amount of fun can be had in facilities of all sizes.
Also featured at the show were new Sky Tykes pass-through elements that have larger spans for the young participants to cross independently as a way to encourage more flexible thinking and physical growth. These pass-through points allow parents and guardians to easily access each area to support their child when necessary as well. The Sky Tykes also showcased its own Sky Rail which combined, creates the perfect attraction for indoor play areas, shopping centres, and educational facilities like science centres.
