"Playing on the wall can bring out the sweat in the oldest of us and also bring out the fun in the youngest of us."
- Charles Jackson, Kraftsman Commercial Playgrounds & Water parks
Number One Played Game? Time!
Hit the wall before time runs out.
Alternate to hit the wall. The player who does not hit the wall within the time ends the game.
A true classic!
Charles Jackson of the Kraftsman team says: "The benefits of the Sutu, for teenagers, for adults, for children playing with adults, is that it has an aspect of electronics, interactivity, and exercise. Playing on the wall can bring out the sweat in the oldest of us and also bring out the fun in the youngest of us. It's vandal-resistant and weather-resistant. It can be powered by regular power from a 110-vault power source. A slide is a slide, and a climber is a climber. You're going to go down a slide, you're going to go up a climber, and unless you're very creative, you can't change that. The Sutu, though, is very interactive. Today's children are very immersed in video games; they like the bright lights and the connectivity of being able to talk to somebody else."
"What's different from when we were kids is that we just had a wall where we could draw a chalk line on it and just kick the ball at the wall. This wall kicks back."
– Charles Jackson Kraftsman Playground
Brian Ching: "I wanted to put the Sutu in Pitch 25 because of its interactive capabilities. The wall draws a lot of customers onto the field. It gets them to be active, participate, and do something they can't do in any other establishment. The wall has a tremendous amount of benefits for Pitch 25, not only Pitch 25 but for myself as well. I love getting down here and playing different games against buddies. It brings out that competitive spirit and works up a sweat. And it's a good little fun workout. It draws people to want to be on the field and interact and play down here."
What sets Sutu apart from other competitive games
The wall definitely draws a lot of customers onto the field. It gets them to be active, participate, and do something that they can't do in any other establishment.
