Sounds! Lights! Action!
Zap those flashing domes!!
Space age sounds, talking
satellites, flashing coloured
lights and web-like climbing
challenges all feature on this
ground-breaking, dynamic
and ingenious outdoor
fitness/gaming phenomenon.
Different games, set up
electronically from two
central satellite stations,
give PlayAlive a tantalizingly
technical edge - appealing
to all from the age of 8 right
up to adults. The interactive
fun and excitement motivates
and engages youngsters,
allowing them to play preprogrammed games or they
can use their imaginations to
create their own.

“It’s really cool
to combine the
technology with
keeping fit”
Oliver, aged 17
The intelligent gym - as this
curiously spider-shaped
unit is known – juxtaposes
technology with exercise;
the ideal combination to
entice computer-obsessed
youngsters outdoors and
encourage physical activity in
a playful and competitive way.
Connecting young people
with virtual realms of
imagination together with
good old fashioned chasing
and agility-testing exercise is
just what the PlayAlive delivers.
PlayAlive – for dynamic,
interactive fun!

mates always

Age range 8 to adult
Jack aged 10
The illuminated satellites
at the top and bottom of
the PlayAlive’s spider-like
legs robotically talk to the
users, which, together with
other high tech sounds
and flashing lights, add a
magical and other-worldly
dimension to the whole
play experience. In addition,
there is an adjustable
volume on the unit so noise
levels can be controlled.
There’s even a timer fitted
so that the eager children
do have a reasonable limit
on the games. Similar to a
surreal spaceship shaped
like a giant arachnid;
PlayAlive is certainly
something which will fire
the imagination of children
and teenagers.
“It’s wicked - especially when
there are lots of us competing
against each other.”
Age range 8 to adult
Holly, aged 13
Standard games include:
Zap the Sat – where teams
compete against each other
to swat the satellites as they
light up at random locations;
Supersonic – where speed
is of the essence to see
how many lights can be
zapped in one minute;
Concentration – test those
memories in this frustrating
‘find the pairs’ game.
The instructions for these
games are on page 10.
The chasing,
dodging and
all over
the huge
structure to zap
the coloured
satellites is
enormous fun, whilst
the pressure mounts to
be the team to get there first!
