    Seilbahn auf dem Spielplatz

    Comment
    Meine Kinder wollen immer zum Spiel gehen, und auf eine Seilbahn fahren. Was heißt das auf Englisch. Als ich ein Kind war, findet man ganz selten einer Seilbahn auf dem Spielplatz, nur auf einem Abenteuerspielplatz.

    "Zip line" is the generic name for this device in the United States. They are not real common here, but the gym we go to has one.

    When we were kids in the US, they were called "flying foxes". Sadly this fun name seems to be dying out.

    apprently they are now called cableways in UK, although as I grew up we called them rope slides

    'Aerial runway' is the BE term I am familiar with, great fun, even when you are not a kid...

    Where did you brits grow up? They never had those things in playgrounds I went to! ;-)

    I was always to scared to go on the ones at the adventure playgrounds, they were always at least 10 foot of the ground

    While we're on the subject of childrens' playground rides, anyone know what a Bällebad is in english. Those are the things you see at Ikea for example. They look great fun. They didn't exist when I was younger.

    We didn't have such things on our playgrounds when I was growing up, either. We devised our own "Tarzan ropes" :-)
