It is always exciting for us to share a few sneak peeks of RCI attractions that are entering the installation phase. We love to welcome new businesses from a variety of different industries and help each find the adventure attraction that suits their feel and target audience best. For this particular spotlight, we wanted to showcase two family entertainment centers, one domestic and the other international, a soon to be debuted cruise ship and an 150+ year old zoo, each celebrating new RCI additions.
Trampoline park giant, Altitude, has locations all across the United States and recently added a new facility in Gastonia, North Carolina so even more guests could have fun by bouncing around! To complement their existing entertainment offerings, they decided to have a 1-level Sky Trail® with Sky Rail™ and 6 Clip ‘n Climb® climbing walls installed. The Sky Trail® is perfectly on brand with Altitude as it features their trademark shades of orange, purple and blue. Oyatsu Snacktown, another family entertainment center but located in Japan, also chose to go with bright colors for their 2-level Sky Trail® outfitted with a Sky Rail™ and integrated Sky Tykes® with its own Sky Rail™. These new additions are their first RCI attractions so guests are bound to be excited!
Switching gears now to the maritime industry, the new Carnival Panorama cruise ship will set out for its inaugural voyage in late 2019 and onboard it will feature a 31 foot tall (9.44m) Sky Trail® that consists of 30 interactive elements for participants to traverse across. The circular layout will allow participants to observe the ocean views from every angle of the attraction and still feel connected to the rest of the cruise experience with other offerings located directly underneath the Sky Trail®. Carnival has been a client of RCI since 2011 so we are pleased to be working with them once more on this widely anticipated project.
Lastly but certainly not the least is the nature themed 2 Level Sky Trail® with 125 foot, 180-degree Sky Rail™ and Sun shades and stand alone Sky Tykes® with Sky Rail™ being installed inside of the historic Philadelphia Zoo. The toned down color scheme and animal printed elements, like the stepping stones, help to give the attraction a unique feel only a zoo could claim. The Sky Trail® and Sky Tykes® will be ideal for families visiting and these attractions are joining an impressive group of nearly 1,300 animals!
Take a look below at the renderings of the attractions themselves and help us welcome these 4 locations into the RCI family!
