RCI Adventure Products, a leading adventure attractions company, has provided a 92 ft. tall Sky Trail for the newly opened Nickelodeon Universe indoor theme park at the American Dream mall.
RCI Adventure Products is pleased to announce that the eagerly-awaited Nickelodeon Universe indoor theme park at American Dream features a huge new Sky Trail installation. The project involved collaboration between RCI Adventure Products and long-term partner Ride Entertainment, as well as American Dream developer Triple Five Group.
Designed to fit seamlessly with the kid-centric theme of the new theme park, this custom installation features a six-pole, five-level Sky Trail Explorer, and an integrated four-pole, three-level Sky Trail Seeker. The theme is the cult classic TV show Legends of the Hidden Temple which aired on Nickelodeon in the 90s.
Tallest aerial attraction in the world
“Like the classic show, adventurers suit up to climb through history and explore ancient mysteries. As the tallest aerial attraction in the world it makes a statement with its impressive collection of different elements,” says Adam Sandy, president of business development for RIDE Entertainment.
This unique attraction is designed to cater for guests of differing ages and abilities. The lower level is perfect for players between 36 and 64 inches tall to climb alone. Then, the upper levels allow those who are 48 inches tall and above to explore without parental supervision.
There are over 50 interactive elements inside the attraction, and it can be enjoyed by up to 90 participants. When they reach the top, players can find the treasure located on a precarious platform, before free-falling down with a controlled descent.
“It is only fitting that American Dream opens one decade after Entertainment and RCI Adventure Products team up for their first project,” says Sandy. “In 2009, we opened a Sky Trail in the Mall of America, another Triple Five property. Ten years later, we are so excited that the world’s tallest adventure course has opened at American Dream. From the jaw-dropping height to the ability to freefall down to the ground to the beautiful views of the New York skyline, this course has it all.”
“To finally see the Sky Trail be fully realized and open to the public is highly rewarding and signifies a job well done by everyone involved,” says Jon Weston, chief sales officer for RCI. “We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.”
Ride Entertainment also installed two new coasters at Nickelodeon Universe, Shellraiser and Shredder. The recently rebranded RCI Adventure Products will unveil its new brand identity as well as new products at IAAPA Expo 2019.
