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.
Using 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.
If you want to live like a Warrior, you’ll need to train like one. Using a combination of Low Ropes From HAGS and Nature courses from Norna you can turn any play environment into Mt Midoriyama…
Miracle Fitness Clusters
If traditional fitness courses are more your speed fitness clusters offer a wide variety of strengthening opportunities to engage children and adults of all abilities.
HAGS Sport and Fitness
HAGS sport and fitness range is designed to make exercise fun – with others or on your own and at your own pace. The products are inviting, user-friendly and offer everyone, of all physical abilities and ages, the opportunity to exercise and build up strength, stamina and coordination.
Surfacing and mounding
Playground designs require safety surfacing in most instances so why not use safety surfacing to your advantage as an additional obstacle and play element. Mounds are the new swings and you don’t need elevations changes to make a hill.
