Is the ropes course safe?
Yes! Statistically speaking, it is safer to participate in a ropes course experience than it is to ride in a car or play soccer. All of our equipment can hold at least 5000 lb and is inspected regularly.
If the ropes course is so safe, why do I have to sign a waiver?
We require waivers for insurance and tax purposes.
What should I wear?
Wear loose, comfortable, casual clothing that covers you and allows you to move around and clothes that could possibly get wet or dirty. T-shirts, long pants or long shorts are all great choices. You should also bring layers. Supportive, closed toe shoes are required. Tennis shoes are recommended. Flip-flops and sandals are not appropriate and will not be allowed.
Is there a height, weight or age restriction?
We suggest that participants are a minimum of 48" tall for the ropes courses and zip line and that participants have the ability to utilize the safety equipment and navigate the courses independently. If you can fit safely into one of our harnesses, you can participate in the program. Those under 18 must fill out a “Health and Consent form” and have it signed by their parent or legal guardian. These forms are due on the day of the program and must be turned in to be allowed on the course. Please contact us with questions about groups with younger participants.
Can the rope courses operate in the rain?
The ropes course can still be fun while it is raining. However, there will be a delay for thunderstorms and high winds. Call before you travel to confirm the operating schedule if you have a concern.
Do I need to be in top physical shape?
The experiential education at the Ropes Course can be physically challenging, but you do not need to be in top physical shape to participate. Please inform the Ropes Course Coordinator if you or any participants have any medical/physical restrictions before participating in the Ropes Course activities.
What should I bring/not bring?
Bring: weather-appropriate items: jacket, sunscreen, water bottle, sunglasses, a camera, a hat and a good attitude toward having some fun and learning. It is better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it.
Do not bring: Some things to leave at home or in the car include: gum, candy, jewelry and valuables. Rings, necklaces and earrings can be lost, broken and/or pose a hazard to you or a fellow participant.
