For years, Sky Trail aerial attractions from RCI Adventure Products (RCI) have served as perfect additions to major cruise ships where multiple generations of guests are looking for exciting entertainment. Carnival Cruise Line, for example, has been a client of RCI Adventure Products since 2010 and has worked with the amusement attractions provider on numerous projects on ships such as Carnival Horizon, Carnival Panorama and Carnival Breeze. To understand why Carnival and many other popular cruise lines choose Sky Trail for their guests, look no further than the product itself.

Sky Trail attractions are versatile in nature and can easily be adapted to whatever environment they are placed in, even if that is on a ship sailing on the open seas. They also present a memorable and immersive activity that guests of all ages are able to partake in at their own leisure. For Carnival and many other operators in the cruise industry, the Sky Trail experience is further customised with the Expedition model. The circular configuration of the Expedition model allows participants to travel around the attraction and exit in a different area than where they initially entered, which eliminates queuing.

“The design of the Sky Trails featured on Carnival ships caters to the high volume of passengers that they host without comprising any of the fun,” says Dan Mooney, director of international sales for RCI. “Travellers are welcome to go on the attraction as many times as they’d like during their trip and parents are able to participate, sunbathe nearby or take photos of their children while they enjoy themselves.”

In addition to its ongoing ventures with Carnival, RCI has several other cruise industry projects on the docket for 2020 and 2021, including plans to collaborate with MSC Cruises on several ships.
