High rope attractions installed in Wales and Kent


Deeside Leisure Centre in Flintshire, North Wales, and Adventure Kidz indoor adventure centre in Kent are both enjoying the benefits of recently installed high ropes courses from family attractions specialist Innovative Leisure.

Deeside Leisure Centre is one of the latest locations to install a major Sky Trail high ropes course. The 10 pole Discovery system has been added as part of a brand new £5.5m development and Wales’ first indoor extreme sports arena. The new site, named Evolution Extreme, is a transformation of the centre’s old ice arena and includes a new skate park, one of the UK’s largest, and a climbing tower, also from Innovative Leisure.

The new Sky Trail course consists of 12 challenging elements at a height of 6m. These vary in difficulty and have been designed to test a wide age range. The course is the biggest indoor installation so far for Innovative Leisure, who have now completed 10 major high ropes projects.

Kent based indoor adventure centre Adventure Kidz is also enjoying the benefits of a high ropes course from the company. The Aylesford site features a seven-pole Discovery course, incorporating 12 rope elements at a height of 6m, which pose fun and exciting challenges to visitors of all ages.

The course was just one of the attractions added for Adventure Kidz’s grand opening in October last year, with the onus on entertaining a wide age range, and is a product that will entertain parents as well as their children. Other attractions on site include soft play and indoor quad bikes.

At the time of the opening, business owner Andrew Moody noted: “The Sky Trail course has been a great addition to our new site. Early feedback has been superb with many people saying they’ll come back for another go. Working with Innovative Leisure was a pleasure. Their calm efficiency really enabled us to carry out the project as smoothly as possible.”

With a throughput of up to 80 people per hour the course can accommodate 15 people at any one-time. Its hexagonal layout means any route is possible and with Sky Trail’s unique ability to allow participants to overtake each other, avoiding bottlenecks, maximum throughput can be achieved, along with maximum visitor enjoyment.
