Two Sky Trail aerial attractions are due to open in South Korea in April this year. Thanks to the efforts of RCI Adventure Products global partners, Climb Korea Co. Ltd. and Zipline Korea, Inc. the family-friendly attractions were recently installed in the Mt. Yonghwa Recreational Forest in the city of Chuncheon and at the Alpensia Resort in Pyeongchang respectively.
The Complex Experience Centre in the Mt. Yonghwa Recreational Forest features a combination of climbing walls, a zip coaster and the soon-to-open Sky Trail with its own Sky Rail. The indoor attraction comprises of seven poles, two levels and 21 interactive elements, including the ‘Bumpy Rope Walk’ and ‘Swinging Steps.’
Daysik Woo, head of international business at Climb Korea, commented: “The Sky Trail is an attraction that exhibits precise safety and design which is new to Korea. Through 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.”
The Alpensia Resort provides visitors with access to golf courses, a cinema, hotels and sa spatial ski resort. As from April 2020, visitors will be able to enjoy the Sky Trail attraction which comprises of five poles, two levels and extends an area of 19ft. with a “Suspended Bridge” and an “Angled Vertical Rope Ladder.”
Jeff Jung, president and CEO of Zipline Korea, Inc., commented: “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.
“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,” Jung added.
