Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could use a trampoline to get to work instead of a walking a flat concrete sidewalk? That’s exactly what the people at Salto Architects in Estonia thought so they created the “Fast Track” – a bouncy trampoline sidewalk that they first introduced at the Archstoyanie Festival in Russia
. The festival takes place at Nikola-Lenivets Park, about 200 km north of Moscow
, and Salto had to hire contractors to dig out a swath of dirt in order to install the 170-metre-long trampoline at ground level. After that, visitors could use it to bounce from one art installation to another.
This brings to mind walking tour guides around the world. Whether you’re on an art walk, a sightseeing excursion or a story-telling tour that takes you from one urban site to another, guaranteed the walking tour guide you’re with will be as entertaining and fun as, well, a trampoline! And the nice thing about a guided walking tour versus a trek on a trampoline is you won’t spill your coffee!
