How Cool Is That?!
Sunkid presents snow adventure worlds for snow domes
There are more than 300 indoor snow and skiing halls around the world. Starting out as purely purpose-oriented halls with an industrial charisma, they developed into thoroughly designed entertainment parks in the course of the years. This trend is still gaining momentum, as the plans for construction of further halls in the next few years prove.
Sunkid, the specialist for design of snow adventure worlds with more than 20 years of experience, often is brought on board in the development stage already.
"We are headquartered in Austria, at the heart of the Alps and the roots of snow sports. Therefore, we are intimately familiar with what our customers need in order to successfully present snow experience worlds. We not only have know-how grown in more than 8,000 implemented projects in over 70 countries around the world, but also supply the hardware in the form of matching products for equipment, attractions and transport solutions," Sunkid's Head of Marketing Michael Peintner explains, adding: "For example, we are the global market leader in the area of skiing conveyor belts, with more than 3,400 installed person conveyor belts."
More than 60 of them can be found in skiing halls. Among them is the longest indoor person conveyor belt in the world at 400 metres (1/4 mile), which was installed in the Skihalle Bottrop (GER) 10 years ago. The Zorb lifts, used in Ski Dubai or Ski Egypt, are made by Sunkid as well.
With its Sunny Stuff product line, Sunkid offers everything that is needed to properly present a snow experience world. Anything is possible, from customised figures of foam material or fibreglass-reinforced plastic up or the complete design of Fun Slopes and skiing children's areas. Sunkid and its Family Rides, such as the Tower, Skydive or Biga-Coaster, as well as wooden playing equipment like the "Pistenraupe", make it possible to turn snowy playgrounds into interactive attractions with great attraction power.
Peintner also names another product from the Sunkid portfolio that is in high demand: "Sunkid provides an interesting option for places that want to offer snow sports without having any snow or the resources to build a snow dome: Dry Slopes. They permit winter sports year-round without any snow at all!
