Australian shopping centres Climbing New Heights

Australian shopping centres Climbing New Heights
December 10, 2018

With Australian shopping centres moving to offer more inclusive community experiences to attract consumers, Iplay Australia have partnered with the Australian distributors and installers of Clip ‘n Climb and Ropes Courses Inc, The Highgate Group, to expand their operations into two Westfield shopping retail malls.

With 13 successful outlets across the country, Iplay Australia are a leader in family entertainment centres while also being recognised as leader in incorporating adventure spaces into everyday community spaces.

Clip ‘n Climb facilities built at the Westfield Carousel in Western Australia and Westfield Coomera in Queensland provide a series of climbing based activities providing healthy fun for all the family. Participants are faced with popular challenges including the Leap of Faith, Dark Tower, Face 2 Face, Stairway to Heaven and Twister. Each Iplay location also includes onsite party and a coffee station for parents and carers.

The latest location in Westfield Coomera also includes a Ropes Courses Inc - Sky Tail Course featuring 25 elements across two levels and Australia’s longest Sky Rail at 21.03 metres long.

Sky Trail courses have an innovative safety feature that means once a participant is secured to the overhead track, they cannot exit until they reach the ground, which reduces the risk of any kind of human error by the patron. In addition to this Sky Trail have resolved the traditional issues of bottle necks using a patented track system that enables participants to make a choice of direct at each junction. As a result, no two visits need be the same.

Commenting on the installations, Todd Austin, Highgate’s Head of Sales for Highgate stated “Clip ‘n Climb is the original and industry’s market leader for fun walls with over 150 locations worldwide. Highgate are proud to be installing Clip ‘n Climb facilities in Australia.

“We believe it is the most appealing, innovative and safest product of its type in the marketplace.”

With more people turning to the internet for their retail needs, shopping centres are looking for ways to encourage shoppers back to their malls. Clip ‘n Climb and Ropes Courses Inc provide great attractions that will keep shoppers and their family coming back again and again.
