“Genting Dream” cruise ship climbing facility

Meyer Werft (Papenburg)

The vast 335-metre-long and 39.7-metre-wide cruise liner has the capacity for 2 imaginatively designed high ropes courses on its upper deck, which have been created with both children and adults in mind. For true daredevils, there is a 36-metre-long Flying Fox on which participants can fly from platform to platform out beyond the ship’s railing, 40 metres above the ocean. Climbers have total peace of mind thanks to the Bornack SSB communicating safety system. The 2 ropes courses are connected by a skywalk that takes guests to the highest accessible point above the ship. Underneath, there is a low ropes course designed to encourage young passengers, in particular, to practise their climbing skills – no safety harnesses are needed because the obstacles are only 0.6 metres high.

The outdoor activity area also has a 70-square-metre climbing wall. The safety of all participants is ensured with an SSB RR (Bornack) safety system.

The entire process of manufacturing and pre-assembling the individual climbing elements was carried out in our company’s own workshop before we then travelled the length of Germany to Papenburg with our construction team. We commissioned a number of partners to produce various construction components, such as the supporting structure and the climbing wall, on our behalf.
