Prometheus, Galopin Parques, Oza Park, Corunna Spain, 2010

Thanks to the anonymous reader who submitted this, one of the most interesting pieces of playground equipment I’ve seen!  Is it a tightrope, or a moving balance beam, or a tethered swing…not sure but I want to play on it.

‘Prometheus‘ was designed to be intergenerational:  adults, teens and children can all play at once, arranging themselves on a rollicking tightrope designed to suggest the deck of a ship and its masts.   It provides that great falling-but-not-falling motion of the best swings and slides, in a totally new form.

Oza Park was designed by Galopin Parques, and the Prometheus is available commercially, from Benito Urban as part of a line called Pro Kinetik.  I couldn’t tell who to credit for the engineering and design; if you have further information please enlighten me!
