Balance, jump, climb, swing and zipline your way through the trees on our Mountain Ropes Adventure - a series of aerial ropes courses with varying degrees of difficulty.

Guides will provide you with harnesses, teach you tips and tricks from the ground and ensure a safe and fun environment as you weave your way through the different elements of the courses.

Navigate plank bridges, rock climbing walls, nets and ziplines as you make your way across the series of platforms. With so many different features and difficulty levels, the Ropes Course is a great activity regardless of if you want to test your strength and agility, or simply play in the treetop canopy with your family or friends.

A Release of Liability Waiver must be completed prior to participating in this activity. For those under the age of 19, a parent or guardian must complete a waiver for the individual.
