Wilmington, NC (PRWEB) March 06, 2014
Two well-known local businesses - 101 Mobility and Jungle Rapids - have teamed up to improve the attraction’s public accessibility. Earlier this month, a wheelchair lift was installed by 101 Mobility in Jungle Rapids’ main building. This vertical lift is extremely safe and easy-to-operate; a user can remain in their wheelchair or scooter as they roll onto a platform and are elevated to the second level where birthday parties and other fun events take place. This collaboration is a great resource for the Wilmington community and puts the city one step closer to fully accessible public spaces.
On Wednesday, March 12th, Jungle Rapids and 101 Mobility will collaborate to offer local children with disabilities an opportunity to enjoy adaptive laser tag, arcade games, face painting, and a jungle-themed pizza party - free of charge. Jungle Rapids is making special preparations to ensure the indoor gaming facilities will accessible for the “Rumble in the Jungle” event.
The laser tag arena will be dedicated to the party and special adaptations have been made so that even children who require accompaniment can enjoy laser tag! The local DisAbility Resource Center, Coastal Carolina Muscular Dystrophy Association, Miracle League, and the HotWheels Hockey Powerchair team have all confirmed attendance, in addition to any guests the aforementioned organizations have invited.
It looks like a bright summer season ahead for Jungle Rapids and visiting families. 101 Mobility and Jungle Rapids are both thrilled about the project and its upcoming festivities.* This event is by invitation only.
