L A S N p ro d u c t p re v i e w October 2016 63 Sky Trail® ropes courses' blend of exceptional design, function and creativity take family entertainment to a new level of fun across 5 continents and 24 countries. In fact, 11 million people annually experience the hands-on fun a Sky Trail® provides. Participants appreciate the unique adventure that puts them in control of their experience, and owners appreciate the popular patented product line's responsive designs and adaptive features. Ropes Courses, Inc. (RCI) revolutionized the traditional tree-to-tree ropes course and cable zip line design concepts to suit a wide range of indoor and outdoor venues and accommodate various business models. Sky Trail® ropes courses are ideal for many industries such as amusement parks to zoos, sports facilities to museums and shopping malls to cruise ships. Sky Trail® ropes courses provide destination appeal and unique family fun for all ages. The area surrounding the attraction becomes a hive of activity and gives off a distinct feeling of excitement, encouragement and achievement for the participants and their families. The ropes course is also well suited as a spectator experience. This makes a Sky Trail® very beneficial for many communities building group dynamics. In 2010 the Oklahoma City Boathouse District Foundation began their pursuit in building a world-class aquatic program. At which time they found value in adding additional sports, fitness and communal attractions to the Chesapeake Boathouse area along the river to improve the quality of life in Oklahoma City. Some of the main attractions included a 6 level, 80' tall custom Sky Trail® ropes course, a Sky Tykes® ropes course for kids and a CTS Zip Line that stretches 700' over the river, all manufactured and installed by RCI. An adventure attraction such as the Sky Trail® ropes course can enhance a community development project and set it apart from competing tourist destinations.
