Innovative Leisure has introduced Sky Trail Seeker – a new breakthrough in the ropes course market for venues with limited ceiling height.
Sky Trail Seeker is positioned between Sky Tykes and the original Sky Trail products and is specifically designed as a kids-only course to challenge a range of ages without the support of a member of staff.
As a result, Innovative Leisure believes it is particularly well-suited to family entertainment centres as well as centres catering to school groups, holiday parks and indoor party venues.
The new product is specifically designed for children up to 1.68m tall (5 ft 5 inches) and has proportionate platform heights and levels. A one-level Seeker can be accommodated in a building with a ceiling height of just 6m, while a two level version can be housed in buildings with a ceiling height of 9m.
Innovative Leisure managing director Phil Pickersgill said: “Sky Trail Seeker is a great solution for locations that accommodate large numbers of groups of children. In this situation, there won’t be a chaperone or adult to accompany each child. These types of groups include birthday parties, schools, scouts, guides and youth groups who all visit venues frequently. The way the course operated at [the] IAAPA [trade fair] was proof of how popular this was with the kids participating.”
Where the ropes course choice for a child before was either the beginners Sky Tykes or the larger Sky Trail, Seeker gives youngsters the opportunity to test their limits in a progressive experience, he said. And as with all other Sky Trail products, maintenance and staffing requirements with Seeker are minimal and its modular design means there is no limit to potential expansion.
