Walltopia, a world leader in the climbing and adventure & leisure industries, has announced the launch of two new online tools, which will improve the process of creating concepts for active entertainment attractions.
With the new Walltopia Product Configurators, operators will be able to create a 3D concept design for their attraction and then get an instant quote, without any commitment. The tools are available for Walltopia Ropes Courses and Rollglider and will empower the company’s clients to bring projects to life.
Tools allow for easy customisation
Walltopia Product Configurators were created in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, when travelling was limited and the planning and building of new attractions became challenging. Since one of the most difficult parts of a new active entertainment installation is the planning and initial design, the new tools will help operators to overcome these limits.
“We make a lot of meetings and site visits especially when it comes to more complex projects. These visits allow us to get to know the client and their needs better. The pandemic has made this exchange impossible, so we needed to get creative with our approach to making concepts,” says Pencho Penchev, Head of Design for Active entertainment at Walltopia.
The Walltopia Product Configurators get rid of the need to travel in the early stages of projects, meaning that the process can be speeded up, and will also be cheaper and easier for all involved. In addition, the tools allow clients to customize everything – from colours and finish to the supporting structure, desired obstacles and operational preferences.
Walltopia Ropes Courses have many colours and more than 100 obstacles to choose from, as well as different options for layouts and belaying systems. With the Ropes Course Configurator, operators can choose the size that suits their venue, and up or downscale according to budget, in order to tailer the attraction to their specific needs.
Meanwhile, the Rollglider Configurator lets clients create a whole ride from scratch, customizing the ride experience, structure and even safety and trolley systems.
Walltopia is also working on launching similar tools for all its products by the end of 2021. Last month, the company shared insights into the benefits of active entertainment for FECs.
