.In May 2009, the gates to the first Upzone Adventure Park in Borås were opened. It was with the German entrepreneur Tamara Christmann Olofsson the idea was born when she saw the development of this type of plant in the German market in 2008, and only a year later she had everything ready to open her own park. Interest also grew in Sweden and in 2012-2013 Tamara was a consultant to Isaberg Mountain Resort when they wanted to open their own high altitude course. In 2014, it was time to open Upzone's second park in Ängelholm, which is now our most visited park. In August 2015, we opened the third facility in Ullared. As the industry continued to grow, Tamara developed a franchise concept, when we were often asked to open new parks. In July 2016, we opened the first franchise park in Åhus and in May 2018 we inaugurated the second franchise park up in Luleå. Since its inception in 2009 until July 2018, we have had a total of 100,000 climbing visitors in our facilities.
We at Upzone always strive to be at the forefront of the industry, so we want you to have as much fun and safe an experience as you visit us. In 2015, we therefore became members of the International Adventure Park Association IAPA to keep our knowledge at the top, and in 2016 we were also certified as a training academy for IAPA. All our instructors are trained according to IAPA standards, and as IAPA Academy Sweden we offer further training for those who already have experience in the industry. You can read more about the courses we offer with IAPA HERE.
.We are also members of the trade association Sweden's High Altitude Railways, of which Tamara was the initiator to start 2013 in order to start a dialogue on high altitude security and to create credibility for the industry.
Although the high altitude paths are our main activity that we run, we also have other products and jobs to develop the adventure tourism industry. We have been involved and helped HiveandFive develop a new booking system and partner portal for Adventure activities. We also collaborate with other players near our parks to create full-day adventures for you with eg. climbing and canoeing. In 2017, we also began to offer, among other things. Combat Archery Take as exciting new activity in Borås, Ängelholm and Ullared. And more new products are in the planning phase - so keep an eye out!
We warmly welcome you to our facilities and look forward to sharing the adventure with you!
