Students or Campus Groups


Are you a student looking for something to do on Monday, Friday, or Saturday? You can now make reservations minutes beforehand or just show up and sign in. Tickets are $4 per person for anyone who has an i-number and only $8 for anyone else!  Follow the link below to make a reservation and sign a waiver.  Come try out our new ropes course that has something for everyone from the timid to the intrepid, including the zip line, and free-fall device!

Are you a teacher who wants to bring your students? Are you a campus activities team, society, club, or department that wants to treat your members to some high adventure?

This includes classes, societies, official clubs, teams, or groups associated with activities, department groups, or any other group officially associated with BYU-Idaho.
