The seamless integration of a Sky Rail™ and a Sky Trail® or Sky Tykes® aerial attraction results in delighted guests and owners alike. Not only will participants be enthralled by a smooth ride on the Sky Rail™ amongst an adventurous Sky Trail®, but owners will essentially possess a thrilling combination of 2 attractions thus maximizing their revenue potential. Younger children are able to enjoy the Sky Rail™ on the Sky Tykes® much like older participants on a Sky Trail® as the element itself operates in the same manner but on a smaller scale to provide a safe and fun experience.
There are various model designs that are available to complement any business. While the base model is a straight track, there are customizable curved models as well. The curved Sky Rail™ allows for a longer ride in a smaller amount of space and gives participants a unique twist when compared to a normal ride on a similar attraction.
There are 2 types of braking systems available for a Sky Trail® Sky Rail™ attraction:
- Mechanical – A mechanical Sky Rail™ is equipped with a braking system which uses magnetic eddy currents to slow participants before landing. A trained course operator is required at the Sky Rail™ take off platform to instruct and facilitate the loading of participants to enter the Sky Rail™ track.
- Electronic – An electronic Sky Rail™ is equipped with a braking system which uses a series of electronic sensors, gates and magnetic eddy currents to operate. This braking system requires a 120v 10amp electrical connection at the base of the Sky Rail™ column. A participant cannot enter the Sky Rail™ until the previous participant is clear and the automated system resets itself. A trained course operator is not required to load participants into the Sky Rail™ track.
The Sky Tykes® Sky Rail™ uses a friction brake and safety gate, which provides an easy and safe method for children.
Sky Rail™ features included when purchased with a Sky Trail® or Sky Tykes®:
- Upgraded Sky Rail™ redundant slinglines and emergency takedown kits
- 2 element track stops per Sky Rail™
