> Ropes Courses Incorporated (RCI)-Designing, Manufacturing And Installing Innovative Adventure Products

Ropes Courses Incorporated (RCI) has been in the business of designing, manufacturing and installing innovative adventure products around the globe since 1989.


Over the span of 30 years, we have entertained millions of people annually across 5 continents and in 33 countries. Since our beginning, we have created a line of products that reflect our continued commitment to safety and accurately embody the adventurous spirit that still remains at the core of all of us.

Engineered and constructed to withstand oceanic conditions thanks to marine-grade materials, our Sky Trail® family of products is built to entertain at length on the seven seas or at ports of call while Clip ’n Climb® climbing walls vary in terms of colors, designs, and difficulty to engage every climber. RCI adventure attractions provide hands-on active entertainment for vacation-goers and encourage all ages to participate as well as test themselves physically without needing to unclip or possess a certain skill level.

Sky Trail® & Safety:
Sky Trail® aerial attractions and the smaller, kid-friendly Sky Tykes® model are entirely customizable in terms of colors, themes, levels and interactive elements such as cargo nets, rolling logs and swaying beams that vary in design and difficulty to deliver a memorable experience for all. Participants are also able to choose their own path as their individually paced journey throughout the attraction is dependent on their level of comfort with each element.

Before guests begin their journey each participant is properly outfitted with a full-body harness and redundant sling-line by a trained operator. Our U.S. patented, integrated systems, like the overhead passing belay system that individuals secure the slingline into, allow for constant movement by participants, delivery of high through-puts, minimization of staff and overall low operational costs.

Sky Trail® aerial attractions have been featured both indoors and outdoors throughout a wide range of industries such as amusement parks, museums, retail, restaurants and more. They have even made their way onto major cruise lines such as MSC Cruises, Carnival Cruise Line, Costa Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Line.

Product Portfolio Expansion:
Though the Sky Trail® attractions were our entry into the industry we know and love today, we did expand our product portfolio in 2017 when we acquired Colorado-based company, Amaze’n Mazes™ and again in 2018 when we formed a partnership with New Zealand-based company, Clip ‘n Climb®, that allowed RCI the ability to manufacture the well-known climbing walls for global clients. An energetic outlet for climbing enthusiasts and amateurs alike, Clip ‘n Climb® walls feature a range of creative designs, vibrant colors and difficulty levels while puzzling mazes are bound to sharpen navigational skills in a quest for the fastest exit time.

RCI also collaborates with authorized distributors around the world to deliver high-quality adventure products and ongoing customer service to new and developing areas within Qatar, South Korea, South America, Puerto Rico and more.

Planned Projects:
Throughout 2019 and even into 2020, RCI has several projects lined up for the cruise industry. During the later months of this year, vacation-goers of all ages on board the Carnival Panorama ship will be able to relax and have fun in the ship’s SportsSquare which is set to feature experiential entertainment in the form of mini-bowling, outdoor soccer, a basketball court and a Sky Trail® attraction on the main deck.

Aside from the ongoing collaboration with Carnival, who has been a client since 2011, RCI is also currently working on assorted projects with several cruise lines over the next two years. Exciting details on the matter will be disclosed in the coming future.
