About Us

The Ropes Course may be scheduled in advance for a group of 8 or more, or you can buy individual tickets to an event. A session at the Ropes Course is a great way to get to know other people. At the Ropes Course you will play group games, work together to solve puzzles, and help one another conquer the climbing tower and giant swing. The Ropes Course provides opportunities for individuals and groups to learn skills like team building, problem-solving, support, trust, and unity....
