Ropes Courses Inc. (RCI) and Ride Entertainment are providing a massive-scale Sky Trail ropes course to American Dream.

At 3 million square feet, American Dream promises to be the largest indoor theme park and shopping destination in the western hemisphere. The project is currently under construction in East Rutherford, New Jersey, approximately 4.5 miles from The Lincoln Tunnel.

The 92 foot high Sky Trail marks the tenth collaboration between RCI and the company’s supplier, Ride Entertainment.

Opening in spring 2019, the attraction will feature 41 interactive elements, as well as an integrated 4 pole, 3 level Sky Trail Seeker with 12 elements. For an extra adrenaline rush, participants will be able to try out a QUICKjump free-fall device.

“We are thrilled that Triple Five Group chose the Ropes Courses, Inc. Sky Trail as their new attraction at American Dream,” stated Chief Business Development Officer for RIDE Entertainment, Adam Sandy.

“This record-breaking aerial attraction will be a centerpiece of the park by stretching to the ceiling. We know that guests from all over the world will love this amazing attraction.”
