Ropes Courses Incorporated (RCI) has appointed Challenges Unlimited (CUI) as its first official distributor in Canada.

Challenges-Unlimited-LogoEstablished in 1988, CUI specialises in challenge courses, aerial adventure parks, zip lines and climbing walls/towers. The company based in Bracebridge, Ontario, will become part of RCI Global, an international network of distributors for RCI’s popular ropes courses and attractions.

“We’re prioritising our relationships with our global partners in order to provide the best support and service to both our clients and the end-users” says Jon Weston, vice-president of sales & marketing for RCI. “We are eager to form additional relationships with partners around the world.”

CUI already has two indoor projects planned for this year involving RCI attractions. The two locations, both Playdium family entertainment centres, will soon feature Sky Trail and Sky Rail aerial attractions.

The Canadian company began by providing traditional challenge courses largely for the educational, therapeutic and camp markets. In the last 10 years it has moved into the commercial market. It was founders Andrew Hubert and Sarah Oosterhuis‘s involvement in an aerial course collaboration for the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) in 1994 that helped to finalise their decision to partner with RCI.

“Their customer service, care for the product and the care of the people behind the product have always been there from the get-go,” says Oosterhuis. “We see their adventure products as really having potential here in the Canadian market.”
