Are you a visitor that wants to see what BYU-Idaho has to offer? Are you having a family reunion? Are you a local group such as a scout troop, a ward, or business organization?

To schedule the Ropes Course you must have a group of eight or more. The minimum session length is two hours. Participants must be five years of age or older.

Community group reservations must be made at least 7 business days prior to arrival date and cannot be scheduled more than 90 days in advance. Ropes course hours are 8:00 AM - 10:00 PM.

All groups require a reservation to use the Ropes Course. All participants must read and sign the Assumption of Risk, Release, and Indemnity Agreement. Minors must have the form read and signed by their parents as well. A link will be provided after you make a reservation to sign waivers electronically. Paper waivers are no longer accepted, if you have a specific need for paper waivers, special arrangements can be made.

Cancellations and adjustments must take place a minimum of 3 business days before your date of arrival. Cancellations or adjustments made within three days will incur a $25 cancellation/adjustment fee. Any group who does not show up for their scheduled time will be charged a $50 no show fee. There is no fee for cancellations or rescheduling due to inclement weather.  Weather cancellations or reschedules may only be made on the day of arrival.

Pricing is displayed in the table below. The Ropes Course accepts payment in the form of credit card, cash, check, or university accounts (you may create a university account even if you aren't affiliated with the university).

Charges are incurred immediately if you have a BYU-I account or general ledger number. All other groups will be sent an invoice for payment, which is due upon receipt. All invoices will include a link to pay by credit card through a secure payment gateway.  Cash or Check payments may be made at the scheduling office Monday through Friday 8:15 am – 5:00 pm.
