Testimonials
"We just came back from the High Ropes Course and it was exhilarating to say the least! (The) staff, Jen and Joel, are amazing - knowledgeable, personable and so supportive. They encouraged us to challenge our personal limits and when we did, the feeling of accomplishment was overwhelming! What a confidence builder! Our two teams worked great together - the team building aspect was great! Can't wait to do it again!" 

C. Morgan


"It was a great experience for myself, and the group. Jen and Joel did a wonderful job guiding us through each challenge. It was rewarding to go through them, great to see everyone support each other, and as individuals, reach and surpass the goals we each set out for ourselves for the day."

L. Chen


"I just wanted to pass on a great big thank you to both Jen and Joel for the great instructions that they provided and making the whole experience amazing. The facility is going to be one that will be booked up all the time once word gets out, because my entire group enjoyed themselves and bonded very well and this will be a fantastic place for corporate teams to do the same. The other areas are perfectly suited for various skill levels and no doubt will make for hours of fun for all."
