One of the best measures of the success of a play environment is how long people stay engaged with the space. The greatest factors influencing this are the level of challenge and variety of experiences. Over time children figure out how to use play equipment and the level of challenge decreases and it becomes harder to stay engaged for longer periods of time. When we introduce competition into play the variety of experiences is always changing and stays engaging. Obstacle Course Racing (OCR) is a sport in which a competitor, traveling on foot, must overcome various physical challenges. OCR is a great way to stay fit, have fun, meet new friends and thanks to shows and competitions like American Ninja Warrior, Spartan Race, Warrior Dash and ToughMudder: Obstacle Course Racing can also make you famous. Miracle Playsystems has several product offerings to help make your next playground design unique, challenging, and just maybe help a child become the Next American Ninja Warrior.Warrior Course 1-BUsing standard traditional playground elements like monkey bars, climbing walls, and crawl tubes we can help transform your park or school into an age appropriate obstacle course for all abilities.

(No I don’t drive that crazy)

The current trend we are seeing in playscape design in Northern California and across the country is all about outside the box thinking. Whether it is developing custom designs or taking play outside of the play box and onto the streets. There is a trend happening to integrate play anywhere.
