The classic KOMPAN embankment slide promotes fun play activity for all children (and those childish at heart). Due to the embankment run loop, children will run up and slide down again and again. Sliding on the embankment slide is an extra fun experience, as friends can run up or down next to their sliding friend. There is room for many children of different ages and abilities. The embankment hill is a great place for rolling and running too. This is fun, playful cardio training for children. When children slide, they train their core muscles, sitting upright while rolling down. This stimulates trunk stability, important for avoiding back and neck pains, a growing problem in children due to sedentary lifestyles. Running uphill or downhill, children train their balance and coordination as well as their muscle strength. They develop risk management skills, too, holding back or letting go downhill.
