Head Rush's QUICKjump XS joins our existing QUICKjump family of free fall devices to bring a thrilling free fall experience to facilities with limited mounting heights. Specifically designed for participants from 44 to 150 lbs. (20 to 68 kg) and mounting heights from 15 to 30 ft (4.5 to 9 m) it's perfect for family entertainment centers, fun climbs, or any kid-oriented activity center. It will be available for sale in early 2016.
Arboreal Tree Climbing
The Arboreal Tree Climbing System lets you route-set on a tree as you would in a climbing gym to make the activity challenging and fun for users of all ages and skill levels, and by simply changing routes occasionally you can motivate them to come back for more. The modular system is available for sale now and comes with everything needed to reach the treetops, including:
- Straps that securely fasten around a tree, pole or column
- Base plates for handholds that can fit anywhere on the strap
- Sets of handholds (various types and colors to choose from)
The Arboreal System is perfect for camps of all types, eco-tourism facilities, aerial adventure courses, ropes courses, zip lines, family entertainment centers, recreation and youth centers, and more. It can also be used in training centers, for access to a treehouse or hunting blind, etc. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ideal for bundling with other Head Rush products such as the TRUBLUE for fall protection or a QUICKjump with an Adventure Ledge to easily create entire adventure experiences.
