Wheelchair access ensures that all children have the chance to feel the exhilaration of moving through space in fun, exciting ways.
Now children of all abilities can enjoy the thrill of spinning together. This inclusive spinner is built level with the ground, making it easy to board with space for up to two wheelchairs at once.

The Viper is a giant in-line rope swing designed for a single or multi-user experience. It combines balancing, swinging, and rocking movements with play interaction. Unlike traditional swings, the Viper promotes cooperative play, requiring teamwork and balance.
This popular, freestanding event allows children of all abilities to join in the fun by either sitting, kneeling, or standing. In addition to the benefits of the rotary motion to support balance, the shaped, deep seats offer postural support, providing helpful boundaries for children who need help recognizing and adjusting the position of their bodies.
The Roller Slide lets kids experience a new way to slide with the added movement and texture of rollers beneath them. The Roller Slide offers a tactile component combined with both movement - activating the vestibular sense - and sensation to muscles and joints, providing proprioceptive input.
Children can ride the waves and enjoy the up-and-down motion of the Reflex. Multiple children can work together to achieve a smooth, swaying movement. The up-and-down movement that is hard to find on most playground equipment not only provides crucial vestibular sensation but also supports the development of balance, postural control and core strength and position awareness.
Built with a large disc and protective rubber bumper, this group swing incorporates the motion of a traditional swing with the added fun of interactivity. The Accelerator Swing helps activate and integrate the important sense of movement and gravity - the vestibular sense. Children can sit or lay on the swing and adults can join in the fun and provide additional support for a child.
Part swing, part track ride, the GlideAlong provides a swift, smooth glide back and forth suspended along an overhead rail. Each bay seats one rider on either a standard disc-style or an Inclusive Swing Seat. The accessible seat features an over-the-shoulder restraint with a high-angled back and contoured sides for added support.
