Introducing the new Fit-In Fun Walls

Introducing the new Fit-in Fun Walls

No matter what type of sport or entertainment facility you operate, be it a climbing gym, Family Entertainment Center, mall, etc. the way to grow your profit is to keep visitors coming back again and again. Ensuring the repeatability of visits is the key to a sustainable business plan. But we live in times when every business is trying to provide experiences, instead of just products, and you compete with so many players on the market. So how do you stand out from the rest and have a fresh proposition to keep your customers returning often?

Simply put, by offering more diversified activities.

With that in mind, we developed Fun Walls – kids' climbing walls that merge sport and fun to create varied, exciting and memorable experiences. What they offer is more than just entertainment, as their interactive games and challenges improve kids’ social, cognitive and physical skills.

However, adding new attractions or replacing old ones can be complicated. And the investment is not the issue – it quickly pays off. What’s difficult is finding enough space to fit something new and exciting, and using it optimally to gain more profits.

This is what inspired us to create the Fit-in Fun Walls series. With the width of only 1.2 m (versus 1.5 m for the regular Fun Walls), the models' small footprint allows you to fit more of them in limited space, and consequentially, have a bigger capacity.

Bubbles is a perfect match for young kids and beginners. Just like air bubbles flow up in the ocean, climbers quickly reach the top of this Fun Wall with a fulfilling sense of accomplishment.

Cactus takes climbers on a desert adventure and challenges them to a competition – who will conquer the highest flower blossom?

As the name suggests, Crazy Climb is a bigger challenge for climbers. The handle-like holds are easy to grab, but their positions get people to stretch and leap for a jump, which boosts their adrenaline.

Climbing the Equalizer surely is a party – it’s designed for simple, easy to remember movements, which automatically pump up climbers to race their way to the top.

Jaws introduces climbers to the thrill of the savanna. They have to get to the top by trusting the jaws of their favorite animals, luckily, without the fear of getting bitten.

The beauty of Kite sky brings back memories of peaceful summer days. But climbing it is more of a challenge – jumping from cloud to cloud to get to the top gets the climbers’ blood pumping.

The Snake is a sneaky one – it has smaller holds, but they are placed in a manner that allows climbers to move up swiftly, just like a reptile.

Stars is one of the most exciting walls. Climbers can try to follow the constellations or make up their own path, just like a mighty space traveler would.

Testing the fire-retardant GRP of our caves

Walltopia constantly upgrades the artificial caves we offer in order to make them more fun and enhance the experience for the end-users. We develop new obstacles (like the recent addition of the Bridge and the Spider Net) and we add gamification features - our caves are currently the only ones on the market to offer the option of in-built educational games.

 

But the most important thing we focus on is safety. Artificial caves are by default, complex structures and require attention to details, in order to get things right. That is why our teams are making sure every element of potential danger is eliminated in the first place.

 

One of the ways we make sure our caves are safe is by carefully choosing materials used in the fiberglass structure. Every cave that Walltopia produces is made with fire-retardant GRP, which significantly reduces the risk of fire spreading through the tunnels and caverns. This is what allowed our caves to comply with the European standard EN 13501-1:2018.

 

In the video above, we are testing this in reality. Watch the comparison between a regular panel and our fire-retardant GRP to see what happens when each of them is treated with fire.

Konstantin Karamfilov joined Walltopia in 2018 as Architect and Product Manager of Active entertainment products. Prior to Walltopia, Konstantin has been working for The Walt Disney Company in Paris, France, and ARCAS Architecture and Urbanism Paris headed by Maurice Culot, one of the students of Frank Lloyd Wright and Paolo Soleri. He is a graduate from the ECOLE NATIONAL SUPERIEURE D’ARCHITECTURE Paris-Belleville and is a member of the French Architects Association (Ordre des architects). Two of his favorite architects are Santiago Calatrava and Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe.

WT: What has been your most rewarding project since you joined Walltopia and why?

K: The Tree Course for sure. It was also the first big project I was given, almost immediately after I joined the company. It was a big challenge as back then I wasn’t very familiar with the rope courses as a product. At the same time, I had to create something that doesn’t exist and to look at this from functionality and design. Except that I am proud of the end result, its complexity allowed me to explore and solve problems that I haven’t met before.

WT: What was The Tree course‘s starting point for you and the one thing you did not want to make any compromise with?

K: - My starting point was to abandon the “form follows function” approach and think of a new nature-inspired architectural design that can become an anchor attraction for amusement parks. The goal was to create a Structural Sculpture with a small footprint that will combine the functionalities of the classical ropes course with a visually striking and appealing design. So I can say the most important thing for me and the main driver of the project, was the visual aspect and I didn’t want to make any compromise with. The design of the course brought lots of challenges to the engineers but I am happy that we found a way to overcome those.

WT: To us, the Tree Course combines two categories in itself - the traditional ropes course and the new active entertainment trend. What’s the difference between them?

K: - That is true. The classical ropes course as I already mentioned is more oriented to a “form follows function” approach. They are high, industrial structures that are made to be functional and the designs are not that important (that’s why they look very similar, no matter who has manufactured them). On the other hand, we see the new active entertainment trend that is trying to enhance further the classical experience of the visitors with the introduction of innovative design, storytelling and theming. Those elements help visitors develop an emotional connection with the places or attractions they visit. In the Tree Course project, it was the nature that inspired us. If you think about it, trees are very similar to obstacle courses – you have to climb the trunk, then reach the branches that have different forms, you have to choose the right spot on every step to reach the top where you can have a great view and see everything around. So we tried to combine those two experiences with the idea that when people visit the Tree Course it feels like they are coming to climb an enormous tree with a variety of obstacles with different levels of difficulty. And when you reach the top of the tree a big platform awaits for you where you can have a break, take a photo, enjoy the view or even take a flight back to the ground. By the way, the platform organization was inspired by structures that many kids build with their parents on the trees in their backyards.

WT: What is the one thing you like most in the Walltopia Architecture & Design department?

K: Definitely the dynamic environment. I work on many projects and with many clients in a constant search for new ways to combine or reinvent our products to better respond to their needs. That makes every day different and gives me a feeling of constant learning and exploration.

WT: Any exciting new products you are working on at the moment?

K: The Rollglider Hub, definitely. It will help us expand our “tree forest catalog”. I have just started working on this one but I’m super excited about it as it will be the most complex attraction that we have ever done. So stay tuned!

Ropes courses are a classic – they have been around for a while and are a favorite of both kids and adults. But as with any attraction, with time people get a bit too familiar with it. 

Walltopia’s team has always had a dream of revolutionizing the ropes course and giving it a new image to correspond to the awe that the course experience brings. After many years of exploring various options, we have finally transformed our dream into reality.

We are officially announcing the Walltopia Tree Course – an unprecedented ropes course attraction with the potential to become the anchor attraction at every entertainment facility

State-of-the-art design

The Tree Course design is inspired by nature but founded on futuristic elements that make the structure stand out as a piece of art. Its outstanding look makes it the first attraction that people notice and remember at any entertainment facility.

Single or multi-level models

Apart from its awe-provoking looks, the Tree Couse is also practical by design. The structure can be built with 1 to 3 levels to achieve high throughput. The design allows visitors to flow between different obstacles effortlessly and facilitates operation. Some models can feature a viewing deck which increases the momentum capacity and profitability of the attraction.

Theming possibilities

The Tree Course can be designed with a specific theme, both to fit the style of other attractions in a facility, or to stand out by itself. 

Join us at the IAAPA Expo Orlando, booth #1686, to meet the team and learn more about the Tree Course. The main architect behind the project, Konstantin Karamfilov, will also be there to answer your questions and discuss the possibilities the Tree Course offers to entertainment facilities.

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."
