There's Something for Everyone

The Ropes Course offers a variety of team-building experiences for those who want to push their vertical limits as well as those who prefer to keep their experience at ground level.

Aerial Activities

Ropes Course - Aug 2021
Ropes Course
The Ropes Course contains three levels, each more challenging than the previous level. The bottom level had moderate challenges and the top level is the most difficult. Participants are connected to the course with a continuous belay system to explore the course. Fantastic individual and group-challenge activity. (Limited to 60 participants per two-hour period.)
Ropes Course - Oct. 2020
The zipline travels around the Ropes Course property with three sections that start at the top level and end at the bottom level. The view from the top is excellent!
Giant Swing
A single participant sits in a harness while the rest of a group hoist the participant up to 50 feet into the air. Participants can release themselves to swing towards the earth. A great team-building and confidence-building experience. (Limit 20 per two-hour period.)
Power Pole
A true test of grit, the power pole is a great team-building activity. A harnessed participant stands atop a 40-foot pole while the rest of a team look on and provide support by holding onto the harness. The participant then leaps forward, attempting to grab a trapeze bar. The team softly lowers the participant back to the ground. (Limit 20 per two-hour period.)
A participant enjoys free fall during a QuickFlight activity at the Ropes Course.
QuickFlight Free Fall Device
Step off a platform into an unrestricted free fall before being softly caught and lowered to the ground. Good activity for building trust and confidence.

Ground Activities

Team Development Course
Designed to help groups learn principles of teamwork, communication, and cohesiveness, this activity is great for department training, youth groups, and families. Our staff can create activities based on any principle or theme you need. (Limit 35 per two-hour period.)
