Centre Parcs Longleat, the newly opened Fun Shack indoor play centre in Stockton on Tees, the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham and Action Stations at Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard have become the latest locations to add Sky Tykes, the junior ropes course from Innovative Leisure.
The Center Parcs site in Somerset has installed the biggest Sky Tykes course to date with the ability to accommodate twenty children at once. The new course runs alongside the ‘Action Challenge’ ropes course and now offers something for all ages.
The new Fun Shack site is the sister location of the original Fun Shack in Seaham, County Durham and opened earlier this year. At over 25,000 sq ft Fun Shack is the biggest indoor adventure centre in the North East and as well as an impressive soft play set up, the centre also offers go karts, laser tag and a mini cinema. Now Sky Tykes adds something extra for children between the ages of 2 and 7.
The Sky Tykes course at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham is the perfect accompaniment to the new double level Sky Trail course above. Utilizing the base of the bigger courses poles, Sky Tykes provides a ropes course experience the entire family can enjoy together.
At Action Stations, Innovative Leisure continues a strong relationship that has already included the installation of a climbing wall and the supply of ‘The Rock’ and ‘3 Kick’ attractions. The interactive Naval museum has now added Sky Tykes to provide an attraction for its youngest visitors.
Center Parcs has opted for a ten pole Sky Tykes configuration whereas the other venues have opted for a 6 pole Sky Tykes configuration which comprises nine challenging elements including rope bridges and tight rope walks. Parents are able to hold their child’s hand at all times on Sky Tykes as they improve balance coordination and decision making skills.
