5 Things You Should Know Before Build Aerial Adventure Parks


With winter around the corner, Indoor Aerial Adventure Parks seem to be more popular for those who never cease to challenge themselves. The aerial adventure parks JP built allow visitors to climb, balance and swing from heights as high as 13m or as low as 4m.

To help you well plan your aerial adventure course construction project, here is a list of five things you should know before plan your challenge ropes course construction project.

         

1. A Course for Kids – The whole family can challenge the high ropes course together, but usually Kids four-years-old and up are qualified to enter the aerial world. To be in line with children’s physical and psychological condition, a challenge course with both high ropes and low ropes for kids would be a good design. With a responsible adult present, kids can have their very own elements to discover and explore. They can explore the low ropes solo or challenge the high ropes for a joint experience.

2. Choose Your Challenge – JP build high low ropes course with 100+ different aerial challenges activities that range from 4m to 13m in the air. There are many elements to choose from, such as walking over aerial bridges, crossing tight-rope walks, swinging through floating foot loops and traversing giant spiders’ webs. Choose your challenge elements according to your target customers’ preference and your ropes course function.

3. No Experience Needed – No experience is required when exploring the JP’s aerial adventure course. With challenges of varying difficulty levels offered, there is something to please hardcore adventure seekers as well as people who prefer to keep their adventure closer to the ground. So don’t worry about the visitors training, and they should just come and try it.

4. Guests Are the Decision Maker – Unlike zip lines or canopy tours, your customers are the the one to make the decision of what route they want to take and the height with which they are comfortable. There are a variety of ways to make their way through the course, and guests have the freedom to take as many breaks as they want. As a result, stop troubling yourself with the tour path setting.

5. Safety is Priority – Safety first. Remember that before entering the course, each guest should be fitted helmet and harness, and be educated on how to use personal safety tethers, course procedures, and how to enter and exit the course. So quality of ropes course and harness should be the key to selecting good ropes course supplier and builder. JP adhering to industry leading standards for construction, inspection, equipment and staff training, and we’re glad to offer help throughout your whole construction procedure.

Ready to start your aerial adventure park project? If you have any question, please feel free to inquire JP Development.

Build Backyard Obstacle Course for Kids

“You’d be surprised by how much variety and fun can be had by creating courses from objects you have lying around the house,” said a mother of two kids. As professional obstacle course manufacturer and builder, JP Development would like to share one idea on building backyard obstacle course for kids here, which named Don’t Ring the Bells, shared by another smart mother.

The kids obstacle course Don’t Ring the Bells will challenge your kid’s balance, agility and concentration as she carefully makes her way through without making any of the bells dangled throughout ring. Busy toddlers will love this fun course.

There can be a variety of obstacles. Firstly, we can set Obstacle 1 by hanging a hula hoop from the roof or other thing, tying colorful bells to the top of the hoop or making it trickier by tying them to the bottom too. Instead, you can tie bells to children’s tunnel, peg, tape or other things to make the obstacle.


Obstacle 2 can be designed for crawling under. Use a piece of plastic pipe, a pool noodle or your broomstick to hang the bells from.


For Obstacle 3, we can set a balance beam. Lay a short length of skirting board or a piece of decking board on the floor, and place some bells along the beam for kids to step over. And to be trickier, the beam can be lifted by some bricks or something like this.


And the Obstacle 4, 5, 6, take good use of your imagination please.

Considering taking not a lot of space, the DIY obstacle course for kids can be located both indoor and outdoor, so whether condition is not a problem. Try it now.

Any question about professional obstacle course construction, please feel free to contact JP Development.

Introduction to Via Ferrata

A via ferrata (Italian for "iron road", plural vie ferrate or in English via ferratas) is a protected climbing route found in the Alps and certain other locations. The term "via ferrata" is used in most countries and languages except notably in German-speaking countries including Switzerland and Austria, which use Klettersteig (German for "climbing path"), plural Klettersteige.

The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 1 to 10 metres (3.3 to 32.8 ft)) fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit, climbers can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall. The cable can also be used as aid to climbing, and additional climbing aids, such as iron rungs (stemples), pegs, carved steps and even ladders and bridges are often provided. Thus via ferratas allow otherwise dangerous routes to be undertaken without the risks associated with unprotected scrambling and climbing or the need for climbing equipment such as ropes. They offer the relatively inexperienced a means of enjoying dramatic positions and accessing difficult peaks, normally the preserve of the serious mountaineer; although, as there is a need for some equipment, a good head for heights and basic technique, the via ferrata can be seen as a distinct step up from ordinary mountain walking. Conversely, the modest equipment requirements, ability to do them solo, and potential to cover a lot of ground, mean that via ferratas can also appeal to more experienced climbers.

Via ferratas can vary in length from short routes taking less than an hour, to long, demanding alpine routes covering significant distance and altitude (1,000 metres (3,300 ft) or more of ascent), and taking eight or more hours to complete. In certain areas, such as the Brenta Dolomites, it is possible to link via ferratas together, staying overnight in mountain refuges, and so undertake extensive multi-day climbing tours at high altitude. In difficulty, via ferratas can range from routes that are little more than paths, albeit in dramatic and exposed situations, to very steep and strenuous routes, overhanging in parts, demanding the strength—if not the technique—of serious rock climbing. Generally, via ferratas are done in ascent, although it is possible to descend them.

The origins of the via ferrata date back to the nineteenth century, but they are often associated with the First World War, when several were built in the Dolomite mountain region of Italy to aid the movement of troops. Many more have been developed in recent years, as their popularity has grown and the tourism benefits have been recognised. Over 1000 via ferratas now exist. The majority are found in the Alps, most notably in Italy and Austria. Others are found in a number of European countries, and a few places elsewhere. Via ferratas have traditionally been associated with limestone mountain regions, notably the Dolomites and the Northern Limestone Alps, as the steep nature of the terrain creates the need for some form of protected paths, while the presence of ledges and natural weaknesses means relatively easy but rewarding routes can often be created. However, they are now found in a range of different terrains.

10 Tips for Rock Climbing Wall Beginners


Have you ever hesitated to say SURE when asked to go hiking? Have you ever struggled to say NO PROBLEM when invited to go biking together? It seems to be no. But how about rock climbing? Maybe you’ll say, “Oh, let me see.” Why? That’s because rock climbing usually is regarded as an athletic adventure that has always seemed slightly beyond our reach. Dangling 45 feet from the ground, held only by a rope, sounds like a feat of Herculean strength we’re not sure we possess.

However, research shows that rock climbing can provide an aerobic workout, build upper-body strength, and maintain cardiovascular fitness. In addition, figuring out the best way up the wall gives our brain a mental workout as well.

It turns out that scaling the side of an indoor climbing wall is actually a lot less scary than we thought. So for beginners, start your rock climbing with indoor wall climbing is a good choice and here are 10 tips for you before walking into your nearest climbing gym.

1. Pick Your River
There are several types of climbing (Learn details of climbing types in JP’s news posted on 17/05/2017). Try them all to see what floats your boat. Top-roping (or rope climbing) with a belay partner allows new climbers to cover a lot of distance on the walls. No partner? No problem—use an auto-belay.
                 

If you're afraid of heights, bouldering—rock climbing without ropes—is a great option since the walls are shorter. If rope climbing is long-distance running, bouldering is like sprinting, someone think.

2. Get Geared Up
Proper footwear is key. Softer climbing shoes are recommended. Skip socks if they're your own shoes, and wear thin ones if you're renting. For bouldering, the only other piece of equipment you need is a chalk bag, and you’re good to go. For top-roping, climbers also need a harness, lead rope, chalk bag, carabiner, and belay device—all of which should be available to rent at your climbing gym. (Learn more about Clothing and Gear for Gym Climbing in JP’s news posted on 24/05/2017)
                 

3. Learn The Ropes
Now you've got the gear; and you have to learn how to properly belay. In fact, climbers have to be belay-certified before hitting the wall on their own, so taking a class is essential.

4. Choose Your Route
Top-roping routes will always start with a five, followed by a decimal point, and then another number that corresponds to the difficulty level of the climb. Routes labeled 5.5 or 5.6 are beginner routes, and the higher the number after the decimal point (like 5.12), the harder the climb. Bouldering routes are rated by the V-scale, starting with V0.

Once you've selected a path, begin with both hands on the start holds (usually labeled with two pieces of tape), keeping your feet off the ground. Then follow the same color route up the wall. No cheating by going off the color. Some routes won’t have two footholds at the start, so you can just keep the other foot against the wall when you begin.

5. Engage Your Core Strength
It seems like climbing would require serious upper-body strength, but your core strength is actually most important. Experience in sports like gymnastics, yoga, or Pilates gives first-time climbers a leg up. Other necessary body parts you’ll need to recruit are your fingers, hands, and upper body (arms, shoulders, and back).
                 

6. Keep Arms Straight
Climbing can become more efficient when keeping your arms straight. At the same time, try to keep your legs bent, which makes it easier to push yourself up with your lower body.

7. Plan Your Climb
It's a smart idea to sequence the hand movements and identify all of the footholds on the wall before you start your climb. As you gain more experience, you'll be able to read sequences better, which is considered a great skill. Also try looking for clues: Which holds have chalk on them (to tell you where other climbers have been placing their hands) and which have rubber marks from shoes?

8. Learn The Lingo
It’s essential to communicate properly with your belay partner so you’re both on the same page.
                  

9. Take A Safe Leap
Coming down from the top of the wall can seem scary at first, but as long as you've taken all the proper safety precautions, you'll be fine. And it's actually pretty fun! When you’re ready to come down, alert your belayer (“lower“), straighten your arms, keep your feet against the wall, and let go with your arms. Think “feet first” so you can push off your legs. It can be safer and less harsh on your knees to try to climb down the same way you climbed up, rather than bounce against the wall

10. Prepare Before Going Outdoors
Rock climbing in a gym is a completely different sport than climbing outside. Grades are going to feel a lot harder outside than inside. Plus, you probably won't have access to trained instructors and the outdoors is a less-controlled environment—you're at the mercy of weather conditions and natural holds. But when the time comes, as long as you take the proper safety precautions and communicate well with your partner, heading out can be way more fun than climbing indoors.

Can Kids Try American Ninja Warrior?

Premiered on June 12, 2017 on NBC, the ninth season of American Ninja Warrior, a competition show in which athletes wind their way through a complex obstacle course, drew a 1.6 rating in Nielsen’s 18-49 demo with its last week’s episode, according to live-plus same day numbers, hitting a season high.


“People never seem to get tired of seeing ordinary people – both men and women alike – do extraordinary things,” says Arthur Smith, whose A. Smith and Co. produces the series. “The show has proved a model that sports entertainment can play really well to a broad audience,” he says. “There’s something that is in the DNA of ‘Ninja’ that’s special and relatable to people of all ages and all walks of life and that is why it has become true family entertainment.”


When watching the show, we’re always excited and dream to try, even though our young kids. However, can Kids try American Ninja Warrior?

Unfortunately, NO. Participants for American Ninja Warrior must be at least 21 years old, which means kids are never qualified for the contest, according to the game rules which is set considering children’s physical and mental condition.


Then what should parents do to satisfy kids’ adventure and challenge desire? There’s a good choice—Take them to challenge JP’s High Ropes Obstacle Course.


Similar to American Ninja Warrior, JP’s High Ropes Obstacle Course set aerial obstacles for participants to overcome, and 100+ obstacles with various challenge levels make the whole challenge tour not only painstaking, also fun and exciting.


What distinguish JP’s High Ropes Obstacle Course lies in the age requirement. No upper age limit, JP’s High Ropes Obstacle Course allows kids as young as 3 or 4 years old to challenge themselves. So it’s a real family entertainment facility and popular in shopping mall, zoos, adventure parks, resort, etc.


Should you have any question about building JP’s High Ropes Obstacle Course, feel free to contact us.

What Makes a World Champion?

Sun Yang, China's world-record-holding swimmer, claimed the men's 200 meters freestyle title at the 17th FINA World Championships in Budapest on Tuesday, July 25, 2017.

He clocked 1:44.39, having won the men's 400 meters freestyle title on Sunday. Sun also took the gold in the men's 200m freestyle at the Rio Olympics last year, with a final time of 1:44.65.

Born in 1991, Sun is not young as a swimming athlete, but he won the championship, so what makes a world champion? Learning from not only Sun Yang, also Kobe Bean Bryant, Edson Arantes do Nascimento, Roger Federer, Serena Jameka Williams etc., we can get some answers as following:

1)       Aim
“Every French soldier carries a marshal\'s baton in his knapsack”, as Napoléon Bonaparte said, every championship winner has his aim one after one before he becomes the No. 1, to guide and drive him or her to go forward.

"I'm already in the ranks of the top swimmers, and now working hard to be a great athlete," said Sun Yang in the interview before the 17th FINA World Championships. With this goal, he spares no efforts in the competition.

 JP Development


2)       Practice
Practice makes perfect. No one was born to be a winner and even genius should learn to conquer his world, while practices is the only way to step to the top of the mountain that you want to conquer.

Kobe ever said he got up as early as 4 am to practice, and that’s why he could do it better. Kobe’s philosophy makes himself a real genius except for his talent.

 JP Development


3)       Persistence
When you ask any champion whether he or she was smooth on the way to success, it’s supposed that no one would answer you “yes, I’m lucky enough to be smooth.” However, what makes them stick to their career and endure the hardships? That’s the personality-PERSISTENCE.

Xu Jiayu, who won China’s 1st 100 backstroke world champs ever, said in the post-race interview in 17th FINA World Championships, “My everyday is hard, but I carry on.” He said training was tired, and sometimes while he was training in water, he have to come out to vomit several times and then go back to swim. It’s his persistence that sends him to the top position of Men’s 100m backstroke.

 JP Development


4)       Love
Interest is the best teacher. When you love to do something, you’re like to do it good; while when you hate to do something, you’re sure to do it worse. Every world champion regards his career as his lover, and the love support him to go forward without hesitation.

Pele, the greatest football player of all time, ever told the public it’s his love for football that makes him the success in football play. No one would deny his love and passion’s role in their success in his career.

 JP Development


There’re many other factors that make a world champion: endurance, confidence, ambition, etc. We are not able to tell whether a child will be a champion of certain fields in the future, but we can cultivate their spirit to prepare for any championship now.

JP supply various equipment to train kids’ spirit of adventure, teambuilding, problem-solving etc., and if you plan to start your career in kids’ educational entertainment, feel free to inquire.

Climb A Skyscraper: London’s 62-Story Office Glass Climbing Wall

In the age of startup companies and culture, perks of the office are a big factor these days. Beyond the typical ping-pong table, catered lunches, gym memberships and snacks, some offices offer even more outlandish perks to entice companies and employees for added benefits.

One such office building is doing just that in London. The Twentytwo building, currently under construction, is a 62-story tower in the middle of the city that will offer some top-notch perks. The most incredible of them all will be a glass climbing wall that will offer spectacular views of London from 410 feet above the ground on the 25th floor.


This is by no means the first glass climbing wall in the world, but it will be the first in London and highlights how prominent climbing gyms have truly become. Entrants will be able to climb routes fixed on clear glass planes overlooking the city and expansive drop. Clearly, this isn’t a great option for those afraid of heights! But for climbers looking to work off some stress after a hard day’s work, the indoor wall with towering views could be a blast.


With a scheduled opening in 2019, you can bet that there will be a few people who take jobs in offices within Twentytwo specifically to get their climb on during lunch, which can be regarded as a good rest activity. However, before it opens, how could you climb a skyscraper to have a stress release?


There’s a good option for you—to climb JP’s Lighted Building Climbing Wall which mimics skyscraper, a fun climbing wall can be built indoor and outdoor and size can be customized.


Apart from this, JP also offers other interesting climbing wall for you to build in your climbing gym. If interested, please feel free to contact us.
