Innovative Leisure and partners enjoy highly successful IAAPA Expo

New major high ropes adventure course a highlight of trade show

Wigston, Leicester, (lifePR) - UK interactive family attractions specialist Innovative Leisure and the company's US based partners enjoyed a spectacularly successful IAAPA Attractions Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, in mid-November.

Innovative Leisure distributes products throughout Europe for US based Spectrum Sports International, Inc., and Water Wars, Inc., while also now representing Ropes Courses, Inc., in the UK, and team members joined their counterparts at the show to enjoy an excellent response once again to the wide range of products on offer from the three companies.

A highlight of the show for Innovative Leisure was the chance to show potential customers the new Sky Trail major high ropes courses which the company now distributes for Ropes Courses, Inc. The model on display, a fully operational Sky Trail Discovery, was in use throughout the four days of the trade show and created much interest among buyers and those trying it out.

"We had a tremendous response to all the products we were covering at the show," commented Innovative Leisure Managing Director Phil Pickersgill. "Our more familiar attractions such as the climbing walls and towers, including a new smaller wall for schools and mobile operators, DigiWall and the Water Wars game again proved very popular with visitors, while the latest addition to our wide range of interactive family attractions, the Sky Trail major high ropes courses, also created lots of interest.

"We had a fully built-up and operational Sky Trail Discovery in the show which proved to be a real eye-catcher with its vibrant, FEC style paintwork. The various elements within the course were highlighted by the use of different colours and we had a really wide age range of visitors trying it out. It was very well received and I'm looking forward to installing our first models in the UK in time for the 2010 season."

Several versions of the Sky Trail are available offering hourly capacities of up to 500 people and one or two levels. Each model provides an exciting, challenging, 'dangerous-yet-safe' experience for anyone 1.1m tall and over and provides a series of testing elements for all skill levels carried out in perfect safety with the use of a continuous belay system on the course. Participants are also able to pass slower users at intermediate platforms using a unique node connection system, thus helping to maintain good throughput.

The many different elements incorporated into the high ropes attractions are interchangeable so that the courses can be altered at regular intervals to refresh, update or further develop where required. Full theming options are also available, such as pirate and jungle themes, or custom themes can be incorporated, such as a wilderness theme with natural wood colours for installations in wooded areas.

"Specialist research has shown that fun, exciting, physically challenging activities such as those provided by major high ropes courses have grown enormously in popularity with those who actually take part and, in the case of children and young teens, their parents, who see such products as offering a healthy alternative to other, less active options," added Pickersgill.

The major high ropes courses available from Innovative Leisure are suitable for a wide variety of venues, including theme parks, zoos, safari parks, holiday resorts, FECs and many more, and this latest addition brings yet another popular attraction type to the Innovative Leisure stable.
