Koolfog and OKC Boathouse collaborate to engage the imagination and attention of children from 2 years of age on up. A newly installed challenge course is the tallest of its kind in the world, boasting six levels of safety harness challenges, the Sky Slide, America’s tallest slide, and the new 80 foot free fall experience, the Rumble Drop, all located in Oklahoma City’s Boathouse District.
As fog effects billow out from the bottom of the 80 foot structure, the cloud-like effect curls around the foundation of the attraction designed to promote physical activity in children, and get them excited about it.
Leveraging the power and reach of imagination and the preoccupation with defining the unknown, Koolfog’s fog effects can be designed to cloud over any structure, offering obscurity and a canvas for the imagination. OKC Boathouse understood this dynamic when they developed the Rumble Drop, but also understood the link between activity and learning. Due to recent developments in cognitive research, scientists have determined that physical activity not only enhances existing neural connections with the surge of increased oxygen and heightened circulation, but sensory impressions endure over a longer period of time, enhancing the resilience of our memories. This is pivotal during the time our brain is developing the most: the adolescent years.
As the children giggle, stretch and climb across the series of adventure courses and eventually plummet to the cloud of fog effects below, Koolfog reflects on the result. “We’re really encouraged whenever we can add to an attraction or environment that we know has a greater sense of purpose,” Bryan Roe, President and CEO of Koolfog states, “we want to know we’re adding to the world in a productive way; that our innovation will, in turn, create more innovation.”
A side benefit? Mike Knopp of OKC explains the duality of purpose in our fog effects, “…[the fog effects] also provided some much needed cooling during our Oklahoma summer.” Imagination and innovation in a cooled environment; surely this is breeding grounds for a greater generation than the last.
