A walk on the wild side
At the danish zoo, Givskud Zoo, the lions are the main attraction. However, the Park's newest investment, the 9-meter high Sky Walk, has also become a preferred attraction for especially the older kids. The Zoo had for some time been looking for a play piece that would delight and thrill older kids. The new SkyWalk playground is a wonderful action-packed playscape that attracts kids to challenge themselves emotionally and physically.
Whenever the park conducts visitor satisfaction surveys, the playgrounds are always highlighted. Visitors normally spent about six hours at the zoo, and only about one-third of the time is spent looking at the animals, the rest is spent on recreational activities, such as the playgrounds, which are all from KOMPAN! It was, therefore, important for the park to add something thrilling for the older children.
The Sky Walk provides endless play opportunities, that will fulfill even the most action-packed children with a sense of adventure and quest. The Sky Walk attracts children, and even parents to challenge themselves, to try and reach the top, using the many different entryways. The structure supports children’s social and emotional development as the children learn how to take turns and help each other on their way to the top. Once they reach the top, they are rewarded with a thrilling, stomach-tickling ride back to the ground in one of the two slides.
We have been looking for something for the older children for a while, something with some speed. But also a piece of equipment that could hold a lot of playing children at the same time, and that’s what we got with the Sky Walk.
We have nearly 50 years of experience, and will support you throughout the project.
