The courses are designed to be a challenge both mentally and physically. The courses get tougher the higher you go. You will determine which courses are appropriate for you and our course team members will give you feedback to help with your decision. Please share any physical or emotional concerns you or anyone in your group may have before starting on the course.
For safety reasons, pregnant women are not allowed to participate in this activity.
All Guests must wear a full body harness and safety helmet to participate and will be attached via a lanyard to the most advanced, safety attachment system available in the industry called the Saferoller® System. The Saferoller® System is a Swiss-designed continuous belay system where guests will be connected to the overhead safety line at the beginning of each course. Once connected guests will simply roll their saferoller device around the course without having to clip and unclip at every obstacle/pole. Guests will not be able to disconnect themselves from the Saferoller system while out on the course; however, once guests return to the main tower via a zipline, they will be disconnected from the saferoller system. At that point, Guests may reconnect on the same level or proceed up the main tower stairs to the next level.
Each course has been designed, built and inspected by an ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology) Vendor. ACCT is the governing organization in the USA which oversees the construction and safety inspections of Aerial Adventure Parks, Zip Lines, Challenge Courses and Towers. ACCT is the world’s leading American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Developer.
