iPlayCO, a leading play structure manufacturer, has announced the launch of a new product, TAG Active, which brings together the classic playground game tag with new gamification technology.
This challenges players to choose their own path and collect points using their strength, their agility, and their brain. They can either work together for a top team score or fight their way to the top of the scoreboard as an individual.
Active, gamified fun
TAG Active also includes social media implementation aspects, meaning that there is a whole range of competition networks available. Players can join daily. weekly, monthly and yearly high scores and competitions, including CrossFit training, intellectual ability, physical strength, teamwork, social integration, and individual cognitive abilities.
iPlayCO’s RFID gamified technology allows players to be fully immersed in the experience, as if in a computer game, but using their own body and mind to gain points, rather than a digital character. They simply tap their RFID bracelet with transponders as they compete, collecting points based on speed, difficulty and combinations. Each game lasts from 10 to 20 minutes
Players can enjoy Ninja Warrior and CrossFit type fun as they jump, climb, collect coins and avoid obstacles. The live scoreboards reflect their efforts around the course, as they compete solo or as a team. The active, gamified fun ensures a different experience each time, and scores can also be shared on social media with friends and family.
Other TAG Active products include aerial assault gamified climbing walls and climbing and score systems within giant climbing towers. New game upgrades, video integration and more will also follow.
The experience is now available at locations worldwide, including at NinjaTAG Vancouver in Canada and several locations either open or coming soon in the USA, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, UK, UAE, KSA, Philippines, South Korea, Colombia, Holland, Kuwait, Italy, and more!
iPlayCO recently celebrated 20 years in the business. Over the past two decades, the Canadian company has made over 4,000 installations in more than 70 countries.
