Sunkid Summer Tubing – Thrilling Innovation!
Sunkid’s summer activities in Willingen are being expanded to include a summer tubing facility
Willingen in Sauerland has a wide variety of activities for winter guests to choose from. Its highlight is the 243-metre long Wonder Carpet, the world’s longest outdoor conveyor ski lift. It was installed just before the 2008/2009 winter season on a sunny slope near the Ritzhagen ski lift. After last winter’s huge success, the management decided to expand their summer activities.
Hiking and cycling are now but a few of the diversified activities that guests can take advantage of during the summertime. The Rummel Brothers family enterprise has been running a 700-m long summer toboggan run for over 10 years now and as a new addition, a 59-m long Sunkid summer tubing course has been installed. So now guests have yet another exciting adventure waiting for them.
The Sunkid summer tubing fun course is easy to install and adds that special summer touch for guests of all sizes. It is especially the smooth transition from the straightaway into the banked corners that provides the perfect bobsledding feeling. No jolts slowing you down and no inruns – it’s all smooth sliding due to the U-shaped galvanized construction. And because safety comes first, Sunkid summer tubing has been constructed based on a safety analysis developed in collaboration with the TÜV (Technical Inspection Agency) in southern Germany. Sunkid puts great emphasis on guest and operator safety – so nothing stands in the way of the summer excitement!
With their Summer Tubing Course, Sunkid provides numerous operators with the opportunity of improving their profitability all year round. Installed this past winter, the new, 243-m long Sunkid Wonder Carpet conveyor lift in Willingen can also be used during the summer months to help the guests get back up the hill. Snow tubes with hard plastic shells are also available and can be used in both the summer and the winter.
