Loaded with innovative physical and sensory play
Imposing and exhilarating, even from a distance, the SkyTwister’s five long sweeping legs give the impression of movement and grace. Walk around it, and you will experience how the panels react to the different times of day and changing weather. Curious?
A varied range of ground level, accessible, tactile and physical play activities increase play options for all. This example is the dragon scales hangout.
The ropes are entwined in such a way as to always make every climbing experience slightly different, and training proprioception, coordination and muscle power in the discovery process.
From the top of the SkyTwister, the only thing seperating the children from the world below is the colourful glass. Looking out they will see the world in all the colours of the rainbow.

Dichroic top panels or graphical print on transparent panels as shown here together with different colour of posts, ropes and membranes.
The challenging climbing net twists like a vortex all the way to the top, and it can be extended outside the tower too.
Stimulate through sensory play with dragon scales or the rollers shown here on the picture.
Panels with moiré effect get children to wonder. The changing patterns capture their attention and develop logical thinking.
The Hangout Pod is a cool place to meet, relax and also find your balance, because it can bounce and sway.
The top of the Sensory SkyTwister has coloured dichroic panels. Dichroic panels are multi-coloured and change appearance depending on where you stand, the environment and where the light is coming from. The dichroic filter in the panels selectively pass light of a small range of colours while reflecting other colours, and that gives this wonderous rainbow effect.
While the colours of the rainbow are created and reflected, children wonder how this can be and train thinking and reasoning skills. The dichroic filter adds colour, but you can still see through, and that makes a lot of fun – suddenly your friends and parents below change colour through this lense from the top of the tower.
Children are attracted to and amused by the rainbow effects, when they look at the world through the coloured glass from the inside, and when they discover the fun colour reflections on the outside. It evokes a sense of wonder.
