Comfortable seats mounted on a special trolley moving along the rope ensure the safety and convenience of children.
Currently, rope rides can be found in many theme parks and amusement parks, as well a in bigger, modern playgrounds and regular city parks.

Materials used for our rope rides and how we install the Tyrolean traverse
When designing and constructing all elements to be used by children, it’s extremely important to have an eye for detail. Most importantly, our attractions are sturdy, durable, safe and resistant to mechanical impact and changing weather conditions. The materials we used come from trusted suppliers and each we care for the environment at every stage of production, always applying the principles of sustainable development.
Rope rides created by our team are made of stainless or black steel with appropriate corrosion protection achieved by galvanisation and powder coating. The rope is also made of steel, which makes us confident about its sturdiness and load-bearing capabilities. At its end there’s a spring-applied brake which allows a smooth stop. Another element is the trolley, which is made of stainless steel and equipped with a rubber-covered chain with a rubber seat at the end. The starting platform is made of waterproof and anti-slip plywood (or HDPE Antiskid or HPL plate). All elements that could cause cuts, getting stuck or other injuries have been eliminated or covered with plastic to guarantee maximum safety for children. The Tyrolean traverse is installed on a concrete base directly in the ground, which guarantees stability and durability.
