RCI Adventure Products, a leading adventure attractions company, has announced that two new Sky Trail attractions will open in South Korea this April, thanks to its partners Climb Korea Co., Ltd. and Zipline Korea, Inc.
RCI Adventure Products is looking forward to the opening of two new Sky Trail aerial attractions in South Korea this spring, growing the company’s presence in the country. One is located at Mt. Yonghwa Recreational Forest, inside the city of Chuncheon and the other can be found at Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang.
These installations were undertaken by two of RCI’s local distributors. Climb Korea was responsible for the Chuncheon project and Zipline Korea was behind the Pyeongchang installation. Both are the first Sky Trails in these locations.
Mt. Yonghwa Recreational Forest
Mt. Yonghwa Recreational Forest caters to nature lovers, school groups, and those wanting to get away into a beautiful forest landscape. Here, visitors can enjoy the Complex Experience Centre, which offers a collection of climbing walls and a zip coaster, as well as the soon to open Sky Trail. This also features its own Sky Rail.
This installation is a 7 pole, 2-level indoor attraction with 21 interactive elements such as the “Bumpy Rope Walk” and “Swinging Steps”. It is in keeping with the forest surroundings with a natural colour scheme.
“The Sky Trail is an attraction that exhibits precise safety and design which is new to Korea,” says Climb Korea’s Head of International Business, Daysik Woo. “Throughout the entire process, Dan Mooney, RCI director of international sales, has been very supportive and we look forward to collaborating on additional projects in the future.”
This attraction provides year-round fun for travellers. The resort features ski facilities that were used in the 2018 Winter Olympics, as well as hotels, golf courses and a cinema. In April, its new Sky Trail will also be available to visitors. This 5 pole, 2-level Sky Trail reaches a height of 19 feet (5.8m) and features many different elements, for example, the “Suspension Bridge” and “Angled Vertical Rope Ladder”.
“Alpensia Resort is very large with a wide range of attractions available. The Sky Trail will be a great addition for groups, especially the student groups who usually visit the area from spring to fall,” says Jeff Jung, president and CEO of Zipline Korea, Inc. “Many people in South Korea are looking for indoor play areas and I think there will be a steady demand for RCI products in the future.”
2019 was a busy year for RCI Adventure products, with installations of Sky Trails at two Playdium entertainment centres in Canada, as well as the addition of the aerial attraction to the Carnival Sunrise and MSC Grandiosa cruise ships.
“RCI has a number of global projects in the pipeline for 2020 and beyond,” says Jon Weston, chief sales officer for RCI. “We thoroughly enjoy working with both Climb Korea and Zipline Korea and can’t wait to see all that not only they but all of our distributors, accomplish in the new year.”
The company also recently provided a 92 ft. tall Sky Trail for the newly opened Nickelodeon Universe indoor theme park at the American Dream mall.
