Asian themes for leisure facilities
As an enhancement of our existing themes, we would look like to quickly present two projects which were shaped by Asian influences.
No play equipment to fear
While dragons spread fear and horror in our culture, in Asia dragons are above all considered as good luck charms. So a lucky dragon will offer children many possibilities to play this summer at the Asia Spa Leoben (Austria). The play dragon not only looks impressive, but also offers numerous opportunities for climbing, sliding, hiding, swinging, etc. The play equipment was especially designed by Sunkid partner Almholz for the theme of the Asia Spa in Leoben. Of course, the dragon fulfils all the requirements of playground standard EN 1176 and will be installed along with other wood play equipment during the upcoming spring.

Sunkid Family Rides
The Lake Shirakaba Family Land, approx. 2.5 hour drive from Tokyo (Japan), located far off in the Nagano Prefecture, came up with an imaginative roofed design for the Sunkid Tower. Indeed the tower does bring to mind an oversized traditional Japanese umbrella named wagasa. The interactive tower impressed customers with its low space requirements (footprint with a diameter of only 6 meters), yet at the same time, high capacity (up to 320 persons/hour). Despite the relatively large distance, much confidence has been given in Japan to the well-known, decades-long quality of Sunkid-Heege Family Rides and the customer is looking forward to the installation in the upcoming spring.
