Our high elements ropes challenge course currently consists of four skill levels designed to challenge you personally as well as encourage group cooperation. Each level becomes incrementally more difficult from the easiest Class I to the most intense Class IV.
Class I —Canopy Bridge, Free line Bridge, and Sky Hammock
Class II — Painters Planks, Multi Vines, and Balance Beam
Class III — Tension Traverse, Silver Surfer, and Wiggly Poles
Class IV — Space Loops, Monkey Rings, and River Serpents
Our solidly-constructed, stationary course is built high in the trees from pressure treated utility poles as well as other carefully chosen materials. For additional safety, all participants are fitted with a full body harness and attached to an overhead belay cable with ropes and carabiners. If a participant loses footing, he/she will simply be caught by the harness and cable to dangle harmlessly.
Participants must be at least 5 years old and no more than 250 lbs.
Secure footwear required: NO crocs, flip-flops or barefeet allowed.
