Ropes Challenge Course

We are excited to introduce JC Park's newest activity and programs! The Ropes Challenge Course is located at Binder Park and offers a variety of elements for people of all ages. The course consists of a high and low course, giving participants a variety of challenges to work across with their friends, family and other participants. Our ropes course leaders and instructors will follow a "challenge by choice" philosophy. Although we want to challenge each individual and group to step out of their comfort zone and into unique situations, participants always have their own choice. Program leaders and instructors will be by your side through each segment of the course in order to ensure your enjoyment, comfort and above all else- safety. 

The ropes course offers the following elements-
  • High Elements: zap across one platform to another, balance on a log more than 25 feet in the air, string across thin ropes and wires to reach the next tree and slide down a rope like Tarzan! These elements require lots of encouragement from team members to help each other conquer fears.
  • Low Elements: challenge you and your team's creativity and decision making while traversing across tight-rope wires with no support other than the people around you to make it to the end of the activity without falling! This is a great team building and leadership activity.
  • Climbing Wall: "reach" to new heights as you climb up an 18 foot tower. Once you reach the top, belay down with the help of trained instructors.
  • Zip Line: sail about 100 feet across the course on our zip line and experience the thrill of flying through the air.
