Ropes Course

What is Xtreme Ropes Course?
Is a totally unique outdoor experience. Our courses take you on a 2-3-hour journey of adventure through the forest canopy. You will navigate cool suspended obstacles leaving you feeling both accomplished and exhilarated. We start by equipping all guests with their safety gear and equipment, including harnesses, pulleys and carabineers. You will receive a comprehensive safety briefing where you are trained on how to use the equipment and course etiquette. Once you have completed the safety brief you are free to enjoy an independent and self-paced adventure. Instructors are always on hand regularly patrolling the forest if you have any questions or just need some tips on how to conquer an obstacle.
Are there minimum requirements to participate?
Yes. You must be 48 inches tall and you must weigh under 265 lbs. For the kidz ropes course there is no height requirement but all kids must be accompanied by an adult.
How difficult is it?
We have 3 levels which get harder as you go up. You do not need to be physically fit, if you can climb a ladder you can most likely go through most of our obstacles.
