Sky Trail coming to upcoming American Dream mall
The expansive retail and entertainment complex, American Dream, has announced that it will include a towering Sky Trail installation when it opens in spring 2019.
A custom six pole, five level, Sky Trail Explorer has been approved for the mall, and will also feature 41 interactive elements, as well as an integrated four pole, three level Sky Trail Seeker with 12 elements. The attraction will also include a QUICKjump free-fall device for the facility’s more daring participants to enjoy.
The inception of the 92ft family-friendly attraction involved collaboration between Ropes Courses Inc, RCI distributor Ride Entertainment, and developer of the American Dream project, Triple Five Group. This marks the 10th project that Ride Entertainment and RCI have worked on together.
“We are thrilled that Triple Five Group chose the Ropes Courses, Inc. Sky Trail as their new attraction at American Dream. The entertainment and retail complex is expected to be the largest indoor theme park in the western hemisphere when complete in 2019 and this record-breaking aerial attraction will be a centrepiece of the park by stretching to the ceiling. We know that guests from all over the world will love this amazing attraction.”
– Adam Sandy, chief business development officer for Ride Entertainment
Installation of the Sky Trail is slated to begin in the next few months to account for the impending spring opening date, where 450 more planned stores and restaurants will open to the public.
“It will be rewarding to see this project completed as a result of the collaborative efforts between Triple Five Group, American Dream, Ride Entertainment and RCI. The Sky Trail is going to provide patrons a one-of-a-kind, hands-on immersive experience that is guaranteed to increase staying power and ROI for the entire entertainment complex.”
– Jon Weston, VP of Sales & Marketing at RCI
The 3m sqft project is currently under construction in East Rutherford, New Jersey approximately 4.5 miles from The Lincoln Tunnel and is on course to open to the public in spring of 2019.
