Zip wire - single oak 40m
A ride on a zip wire is fun and also daring, and this play equipment can therefore help to push the child's boundaries when it comes to risk-taking. Am I brave enough to have a go? Or does it feel like a risk? Overcoming fear is the best foundation for good mental development.
The zip wire is known to support the development of the child's motor skills. The child has to maintain a good grip and keep their balance on the seat.
The vestibular system helps the brain with the experience of acceleration and staying in a horizontal position. It is this system that is stimulated when the child whizzes down a zip wire.
The proprioceptive system helps the brain to interpret information about the position and movement of different parts of the body (the sense of kinesthesia).
If the correct muscles are not tensed at the right time, the body will collapse like a house of cards and the child falls off.
The child learns to coordinate their body and movements. This exercise improves coordination and the child no longer has to think about their body so much, leaving them free to focus on other things such as learning and exploring their surroundings.
