Incorporating two parallel tracks - one easy, one difficult - the custom-designed Sky Trail® creates a fun family cruising experience that offers a 360-degree view while suspended 150 feet above sea level. Located above the top deck SportSquare complex, each family member can traverse through their own course at their own skill level, while still participating in the same active experience together. Prime Play's Sky Trail® both challenges participants and keeps them completely safe, harnessed into the closed tracking system above. This custom truss system was also designed to decrease the amount of weight on the deck and reinforces Prime Play's and Carnival's shared commitment to providing "safe, family fun.
"The main objective for the Carnival Magic's SportSquare was to bring families together in an active, fun way and a large component of that was the ropes course. We knew that to create the industry's first on-board ropes course we would need the expertise of Prime Play and their portfolio of attractions," says Lania Rittenhouse, Carnival's VP of product development. "From the beginning, they were able to solve our engineering challenges and balance the need for family fun. Since the inaugural sailing, the ropes course has been a huge hit with our guests."
