The Almrausch wooden ball track makes children's eyes light up

Wooden ball tracks help create new spaces, increase capacities, and extend the time spent on site more than ever in coronavirus times.

The “Almrausch” playground at the mountain station of the Gartnerkofelbahn in Nassfeld added a new attraction in August 2020: the Almrausch wooden ball track.

The Almrausch ball adventure commences right by the mountain station of the Gartnerkofelbahn. The wooden ball track with about ten different stations covers a length of approx. 60 metres. The wooden ball, sold for two euros at the mountain station, passes through labyrinths, cow bells, funnels, and many other obstacles in the different stations along a diverse route that produces exciting sounds and noises. Children will accompany their wooden balls from start to finish, ensuring great fun and action along the way. This has made the “Almrausch” wooden ball track a top attraction among visitors of all age groups.

Of course, a woodem ball can be sent down the track any number of times in order to break a sibling’s record – or even one’s own! The best thing about it is that the wooden ball has been branded with the playground’s Almrausch figure, to be taken home as a souvenir. “It is very important to us to make Nassfeld even more attractive for locals and guests alike,” explains entrepreneur and Nassfeld investor Klaus Herzog. “I loved the wooden ball track concept from the very first.”

A wooden ball track was built in the Alpenwelt Nova of Silvretta Montafon, and another one in the Bergbahnen Rosshütte region, in the summer of 2019 as well.

In addition to ball tracks that are typically installed on a slope (such as a beginner’s skiing slope), Sunkid is also offering a wooden ball tower as another attraction. Working by the same principle, it also involves a wooden ball running down a track. However, this one is a centralised attraction that can be customised to match a theme. The wooden ball track tower is now available in different sizes.
