Playground Spotlight Feature: the Hang-A-Round

The Hang-A-Round can fit almost anywhere to provide a unique playground experience.

The Hang-A-Round can fit almost anywhere to provide a unique playground experience.

The Hang-A-Round is an ideal feature in many ways.  Because this feature is both free standing and small in overall size, it can be placed pretty much anywhere, on any site.  This overhead challenge is formed like an upside down J with a wheel shaped grip at the end of it.  All a kid has to do is grab hold and then through their own momentum or through the assistance of others, he or she can spin around and around.

Although this feature only allows one child to participate at a time, its accessibility level is actually high.  This is because a child can only hang on for so long and then has to give up the turn to rest—allowing the next kid to give it a spin.  Kids could even take turns to see who can spin the longest.  Providing a unique experience, while permitting many to use it in a given time frame, the Hang-A-Round is worth having around.

Because of its simple structure, the Hang-A-Round can fit into almost any playground theme with as little work as a color change.  Plus, only needing about five square feet to fit, it can be added to a playground of any size to give that site an extra edge in the original experience it imparts onto visitors.  Give the Hang-A-Round a chance; it is one feature that’s nature is way more fun than its size might convey.
