Elements Cliff Rider

The amazing taller Cliff Rider is hugely attractive to school age children. It calls for repeated loops of action, again and again. The intensely thrilling ride high up in the air, on a small footrest, is for the courageous. And those who aren’t at the first go, get there with a little help from their friends. Till then, there is ample climbing and gliding on the climbing walls, climbing cleats on poles and the fireman’s pole. When testing the Cliff Rider with children, they rated it a top scorer in thrilling play: Height, speed and rough-and-tumble was what the children really liked when playing here. From a more adult perspective, the Cliff Rider trains the muscle force and tension as well as the timing and sequencing of movements. Judging your body’s movements, object control as well as timing is quite a complex tax, but a necessary life skill that make it possible to for instance navigate the body securely and confidently through environments, e.g. in the street traffic. As opposed to NOT being able to do this, the children who master these skills have body confidence, self confidence and ultimately the ability to concentrate on other things, such as academic topics in school. Last but not least, the self-confidence that children gain from overcoming their initial hesitations to travel on the Cliff Rider, is the more reason that they should.
