About


Untitled3

The Rollglider is an aerial ride, which combines the thrill of free falling and hang gliding into one ride, giving you a new adrenaline experience in a safe environment. The ride can be customly designed to meet all of the needs of your venue, with speed options of up to 50 km/h. The Rollglider can be added to a variety of indoor and outdoor locations. It can even be incorporated into ski resorts, where lifts can be used as a retraction system for the trolley.

The Rollglider can be suspended from trees, a ceiling, or building, or it can be self standing, supported by its own columns.


Main Components


Trolley

Option 1
Standard Trolley

The Standard Trolley is designed to work with the help of gravity. The speed that it reaches depends on the slope of the line, as well as the weight of the participant. The steeper the slope , the faster and more exhilarating the ride gets. The standard Rollglider trolley can reach speeds of up to 50 km/h (31 mph).

In cases where there is a large slope, the speed of the trolley is regulated by a magnetic brake in the affected section of the line, or a centrofugical brake that sets an overall limit on the speed of the trolley.

An optional handlebar can be mounted to the trolley for horizontal riding, where the participant is strapped into a special harness, and released headfirst.



Option 2
NEW! Electric Trolley

The Electric Trolley is designed for slower, more relaxed rides, where the Rollglider’s line has little or no inclination. The trolley is equipped with steering handles similar to those of a motorcycle. Participants can accelerate the trolley’s engine with one handle and slow it down using the brake on the other. The Electric Trolley can reach speeds of up to 11 km/h (7 mph) on its own, and up to 35 km/h (21 mph) with the help of a steep slope. In cases where the speed begins to exceed 35 km/h (21 mph) , the trolley’s motors start a braking mechanism and bring the speed back down.

Trolley Transition System

Option 1
Standard Trolley Return System

The Standard Trolley Return System brings the trolley back to the starting platform for the next participant. This is the most common type of transition system and is used when the Rollglider has both a starting and finishing platform. It consists of an electric engine with a colored light indicator and two remote controls.

Once a participant finishes the ride and lands on the finishing platform , a staff member detaches him and returns the trolley back to the starting platform with the press of a button.



Option 2
NEW! Chain Inclined Lifting System

The Inclined Chain Lift System is designed to transport participants from a single platform to the highest point of the Rollglider’s line, where the ride begins. Once it is safe for the participant to proceed, the trolley is released. The line finishes at the same platform, allowing facility staff members to quickly attach/detach participants.

This lifting system can transport multiple participants at the same time, allowing for optimal capacities. It reduces the number of platforms and the number of required staff members.

Safety Control System

Option 1
Standard Traffic Control System

The Standard Traffic Control System is an in-house developed system that ensures the safety of participants. It consists of a traffic light, which indicates when the line is free/occupied.

A red light indicates that a participant is on the line. This automatically locks the gate, preventing other participants from being launched. Once a participant reaches the end of the line, and is safely detached from the Rollglider, a green light indicates that it is safe for the next participant to proceed.






Option 2
NEW! Smart Traffic Control System

The Smart Traffic Control System ensures the safety of multiple riders. It consists of several sensor-equipped sections on the Rollglider’s line. The sensors detect the trolleys’ movement through each section, and the system calculates whether the distance between participants is safe. If a participant gets in close proximity to another rider, a magnetic brake is activated, preventing him from proceeding until the distance is safe again.

Operation Equipment

Hydraulic Platforms

The platforms of the Rollglider are designed to lift participants up to the trolley, so that they can be easily attached to the line, and to lower them after the end of the ride. This element decreases operational time for each ride.









Openable Line Segment

An openable line segment is a gate through which Rollglider trolleys are loaded. It can be either manual or electrical.

I was planning for over a week to send an email to say wow.....I cant believe the difference between the Knox walls (1 year before) and the new walls...wow! The way these techs build vs the way the techs at Knox build is like they are a different company...wow! Huge, huge improvement and a huge welldone to Boryana, Rob and all else involved in the huge leap forward in the walls. Almost every critic has been addressed and although we can always improve I have to say thank you for taking feedback onboard which has resulted in a much better product.

If you need evidence for how much my crew loved Funtopia, I offer this: Not even the promise of ice cream convinced the boys to abandon their climbing"

The true definition of curious play

This place is fantastic," said Jacquie Starzyk of Chicago, who brought her 5-and-a-half-year-old son here for the first time. "Kids are curious. 'Can I do this? Am I big enough? Am I strong enough? Can I make it to the next level?' This place is the true definition of curious play."

This really mixes things up

Of all the indoor play places Nicholas Laskaris has visited in his life, the 7-year-old Winfield boy described Funtopia as "the best one so far." "This has a lot of different obstacle courses and other stuff I've never seen." - Nicholas, 7 yrs old
"Usually the climbing places are just a wall, and they get bored pretty quickly," said Jackie Laskaris (mom). "This really mixes things up.

Thank you so much for your quick help here in Helsinki! I am amazed. Another client from Portugal just called a couple of days ago about my experience with Walltopia and Ropetopia and I could only recommend you! Dimitar did all that we expected and more! He was a very nice guy and also speaks very good english, which made it very easy.
