Sky Trail®: The indoor & outdoor innovation for Europe!

The Sky Trail® is the perfect extension of the traditional ropes courses for tourists: It works as a stand-alone attraction in an urban setting or can be incorporated into an overall concept for sport halls, leisure parks or cruise liners. Constructed using self-supporting steel components with outstanding properties, this leisure facility is perfect for busy, popular locations.

Kids and grown-ups alike can traverse entertaining, exciting and challenging climbing elements while remaining safe at all times on the Sky Trail®. These freely definable routes with varying degrees of difficulty deliver guaranteed fun, adventure and thrills for a large target group!

Both indoors and outdoors, the space underneath the course can be used for additional structures. The special steel structure requires very little space and is easy to adapt to the on-site conditions, plus it enables a large volume of participants to pass through the course (50–500 people per hour) and features an end-to-end safety system. The extremely low staffing requirements, high capacity, operation without power consumption and low maintenance make this climbing park one of the most attractive investment opportunities in the leisure sector.

The Sky Trail® is manufactured by our US partner “Ropes Courses, Inc.”, a pioneer in ropes course construction which has built over 800 ropes courses worldwide since 1989. As the exclusive distributor for Europe (except UK, France, Norway and Denmark) faszinatour is very much looking forward working with you!

Safety information: A TÜV site acceptance test and certificate of operational safety is required as standard upon completion of each Sky Trail® course. Our steel structures bear the obligatory CE mark in accordance with EN 1090 and comply with the EN 15567 ropes course standard.

Operating concept

At a height of approx. 70 cm the children move on similar climbing elements like the higher Sky Trail® features. Special access elements allow parents or other accompanying persons to follow the child on the ground and to give support if necessary.

Sky Rail™

Sky Rail™ - the innovative zipline

The Sky Rail™ is a rigid zipline that connects with the Sky Trail® overhead safety track system. It does away with the need for participants to clip or unclip themselves from the zipline or for them to do so with the help of additional staff. The linked safety system provides an uninterrupted run, allowing participants to enjoy the ziplining experience independently.

The Sky Rail™ can also complement existing Sky Trails® in a most flexible way. Due to the rigid design of the Sky Rail™ sagging as it occurs with classical steel cable constructions in the middle of the zip line is avoided. Hence this zip line can also be used indoors in halls with a ceiling hight from 6 meters. The Sky Rail™ can also be operated as a stand-alone attraction without a direct connection to a Sky Trail®.

There are two different types of braking systems. First an automated monitoring system which is combined with an electronically controlled access control and a traffic-light system. This logically controlled system allows a high througput rate of clients at a maximum safety level. Second there is a non automated system with a magnetic brake which does not need power supply. Counterweights and mechanical signals replace motors, light barriers and lights. This system requires a person in charge at the starting point of the Sky Rail™ to guarantee for smooth operation.



Sky Trail® custom made

Sky Trail® custom made - everything ist possible

Besides the standard models the steel construction of course allows for every possible configuration the client desires. So called "custom made" Sky Trail® models are especially in demand if the location holds extra challenges like with the following projects:

Installation on cruise ships: Here the exactly defined position of the masts requires a special construction. We mastered this challenge and just before the cruise ships Carnival Magic, Carnival Breeze und Norwegian Breakaway were ready, have built our Custom-Made Sky Trail® models on the ships in the dockyard. Due to the great success with the passengers more orders have been placed. A special high-light has been constructed on the Norwegian Breakway: the element "walk the plank" takes the climbers out over the ship´s rail at a height of 30 meters with unobstructed view over the sea. At the end of this element a self-releasing camera rewards the adventurers with a souvenir photo.

Installation at a rock abyss: Our partner Ropes Courses, Inc. has erected a Sky Trail® at a rock abyss with some of the elements leading straight over the canyon. Thus the clients get the breathtaking opportunity to look down 200 meters and balance safely over the abyss.

Installation in a shopping mall: Our distribution partner for UK and Ireland - Innovative Leisure Ltd. - has constructed a 4-story Sky Trail® on limited space in the shopping mall "Merry Hill". Not only the special design but also the building process in confined space surrounded by a glass palace was a real challenge.

Installation in water: In the leisure park "Hansapark/Sierksdorf" faszinatour has built a Sky Trail® partly into an existing lake and integrated the facility on difficult terrain into a very old tree population.

Thematization: all sorts of scenarios are possible like eg. pirate ship, jungle or corporate branding.

Zipline courses Zipline courses

Get that bit closer to the dream of flying. Zipline courses are a full-blown trend among visitors and park operators. But that doesn’t come as a surprise! Ziplining was always bound to be this popular – it provides spectacular action for a very broad target group with a simultaneously high throughput rate.
