Hans Weeren - BigAirBag®

When the snow has gone the fun carries on! We can provide dry slopes which can be used as a tubby platform. Our tubby jump tracks are easily mounted directly onto the hillside, creating a spectacular ride for the whole family. Additionally, the dry slopes can be used by skiers and snowboarders, providing a high variety of activities even during summer to the mountain resort.

We had 4 lanes at 5 meters which meant we could process 30+ people per minute. The BigAirBag® at the Adventure Run Sydney was hectic but absolutely mental.

Rent it out!

There is always a possibility to gain extra revenue from your BigAirBag®. An airbag can be used not only in mountain resorts but also in skate parks, events, or by professional athletes. A BigAirBag attraction will extend any winter sports season and activate new and exciting experiences during the summer months.

Winter      –    Climbing Activities    –      Summer

One of the unique and safe activities which a Mountain Resort can propose to their clients is a climbing attraction. An extreme experience at first sight, can be converted into a safe one using a BigAirBag®. The charm of climbing is that it has a wide range of difficulty which makes the attraction suitable for a large target audience with different abilities.

A climbing wall can be paired with a Revolution or Adventure BigAirBag® offering yet another dimension to the existing bag. Additionally, by using a turn-key attraction set up, the wall climbing experience can be integrated along with other activities.

I have been rock climbing for over 13 years now and climbing without ropes gives the ultimate freedom feeling. BigAirBag® helped me to realise my childhood dream of being able to fly, which is such an amazing feeling. Best motivation ever.

Rustam Gelmanov - Professional Rock Climber
  • A unique versatile attraction
  • Suitable for a wide range of customers and competions.
  • Improves coordination and body strength
  • The BigAirBag can be customized and adapted to fit any existing wall.

To climb an ordinary wall during winter can be challenging because of the low temperatures. However, the season can still offer an extreme experience. During winter, special platforms can be installed which simulate the ice on a mountain. By using special mountain climbing gear BigAirBag can offer the same experience as climbing Everest but in much safer conditions. The setup can be also used for competitions or events as a mobile attraction unit.

During summer the clients can put their climbing skills to the test with an actual free fall onto the airbag if they lose grip. This attraction simulates the feeling of scaling a mountain high in the air with no ropes, it takes bouldering to the next level. Unique time trial competitions or interactive climbing walls can make the familiar climbing wall attraction into an experience that will help your facility to stand out even further.

Winter     –    Ski and Snowboard    –     Summer

Many individuals can perform basic movements on ski or snowboard, however just a few have the courage to start jumping. This is caused by the fact that many mountain resorts do not offer a suitable platform to train complex aerial tricks. By utilizing a BigAirBag® the ski resorts will attract an influx of riders as a selling point to make freestyle sports more accessible to everyone. By offering a safe and controlled area where people can try jumping for the first time prevents injuries around other parts of the mountain and opens up multiple different revenue streams through ticket sales or annual passes.

Customized Freestyle, Revolution, or Landing BigAirBags can be manufactured accordingly to your location, optional safety rings, and our low friction top sheet will create a high throughput, safe environment for people to try jumping for the first time.

  • A new dimension to the existing slopes
  • Highly versatile
  • Attractive for both professionals and beginners  

Skiing or snowboarding during winter is pretty straight forward. However, BigAirBag® can give it a little twist. Using the natural landscape or building a snow ramp will give a thrilling experience to many riders. The customers can start with simple jumps and increase the difficulty every time.

As a resort, we wanted to provide kids with the tools they need to build confidence in extreme sports and to transfer these skills into the modern world. Having a BigAirBag® would give the students the chance to try something new.

Ben White - International snowboarder and President of Midwest Freeriders

To be able to enjoy the unique emotions of skiing and snowboarding, BigAirBag® can provide dry slopes for ski resorts. A dry slope creates a slippery surface, similar to snow, which gives the opportunity for people to try winter sports or tubing in the summer months.

I have noticed first-hand that the opportunities with BigAirBag® are endless. I currently own four BigAirBags® for ski- and tubby jumps in Les Trois Vallées and is looking to add at least one more. The business is doing very well.

Bernard Perrachon - CEO FOOLJUMP

Winter      –      FREEFALL      –      Summer 

The BigAirBag free fall attraction is one of the most popular models that we offer to our clients. Regardless of its simple concept, a free fall into a BigAirBag creates an adrenaline-pumping unique experience that you cannot try anywhere else. For some, it’s an opportunity to overcome their fears, for others a platform to train aerial tricks, the difference between jumping into a BigAirBag compared to water will surely make those knees wobble. As an all year round attraction without the need for extra equipment it makes a convenient setup for most locations.

We can provide the complete attraction with jumping platforms up to 8m high making this attraction suitable for any target audience.

  • Easy to set-up and operate with limited space available.
  • TÜV Certified and safety guaranteed
  • Can be used in combination with other attractions
  • Attractive for all age groups
  • Complete installation

We are extremely happy with the combination of the Jumping Tower and BigAirBag® free fall set-up, it is an activity that can be used by everyone! Both staff and guests love the excitement of falling through the air!

Sven Heijboer - Duprat Concept

Winter    – Snowmobiles and FMX –    Summer 

As more Mountain Resorts look to stand out from the rest offering entertainment to guests or other ways to earn revenue through the year. A BigAirBag training ground for freestyle motocross, snowmobile or quad riders can be a unique example of thinking outside the box. As industry leaders within the action sport airbag industry, we understand the need for a safe training facility like this.

Combine our Landing with our Revolution BigAirBag with full Kevlar top sheets that can deal with the hardest of falls and heaviest of impacts and create a training facility, unique attraction for existing guests that people will travel far and wide to visit.

  • Unique and eye catching
  • Events, festivals, and rentals
  • Crowd magnet
  • Complete installations and safety training

Winter      –    Water Slide   –      Summer

Some mountain resorts don’t even think about a water slide, though it’s a great idea to attract new customers, especially during summer. The airbag will be a perfect addition to a swimming pool, making it more fun and appealing for a younger audience. The attraction can be paired with a Revolution, Adventure, Freestyle or Landing BigAirBag®.

  • Highly attractive especially during summer
  • Safe and exciting
  • Low running costs
  • High throughput

Usually, the venues don’t use their pools during winter time due to low temperatures. BigAirBag® gives you the opportunity to custom build an airbag which fits perfectly in the pool, so it can be used during the winter season.

The combination of warm weather, water and slides are appealing for all age groups. The BigAirBag® water slide activity can be paired with a tubby jump. As a result, the same materials can give twice as much revenue during a year.

We know, there is a lot of information to process, but the limits of using your airbag are truly defined by your imaginations. That’s why here, at BigAirBag® we help you to Redefine your Limits. Don’t hesitate to contact us, so we can give you the best possible solution.
