High Ropes

if you’re looking for a high adrenaline activity look no further than high ropes!

 

 

we’ve got eight high ropes activities for your pleasure:

Crate Stacking – participants work together, supported by the rest of their group, to build the tallest tower of crates possible – see who can climb the highest, get there the quickest and keep everything together without falling down!

Gladiator Challenge – can your team scale this vertical climbing challenge featuring a scramble net and tyres… it’s a race to the top!

Leap of Faith – a great personal challenge… you climb to the top of a 10 metre pole and, whilst being cheered on by your teammates, make a leap of faith, jumping off the platform (hopefully) on to the trapeze!

Zip Wire – our zip wire spans virtually the full length of the main field… participants start by climbing a huge pole at the far end of the site and, once clipped in, fly along the wire to the high ropes at the other end of the field… once your run ends you’ll free-fall abseil down to the ground!

Powerfan – climb to the top of a 13 metre pole, stand on the edge of the platform and when you’re ready just step off!  after an initial free-fall drop the Powerfan kicks in and gently lowers you to the ground!  (not for the faint hearted!)

High All-Aboard – this challenge requires a team of up to four to stand on a 30cm square platform and lean back together in each others arms… it’s tricky enough at ground level, but you’ll find this platform at the top of a 10 metre pole!

High See-Saw – a team of up to four climb up to the High See-Saw 10 metres up and make their way to the edges… careful not to tip the balance!

Jacob’s Ladder – for the more experienced high ropes group, the Jacobs Ladder is a fantastic team building activity – probably one of the best team challenges you will ever encounter… a team of four work together to get to the top rung of Jacob’s Ladder… it’s not easy, it requires teamwork, communication, trust and strength!

 

important points to note…

  • pre-booking is essential – BOOK NOW and we’ll make all the arrangements for you… we usually need seven days notice for instructor-led activity sessions
  • the main high ropes area is lit so Crate Stacking, Gladiator Challenge, Leap of Faith, High All-Aboard, High See-Saw and Jacob’s Ladder activity sessions can take place after dark… the Zip Wire and Powerfan are not lit so can only take place during daylight hours
  • these activities can operate in most weather conditions – if it’s not safe to proceed your instructor will cancel the session – if this happens we can either reschedule your activity or offer you a full refund, whichever you prefer
  • all equipment is provided
  • participants should be wearing sensible footwear (no flip-flops, high heels or open-toed footwear), old outdoor activity clothing suitable for the weather conditions – shorts can be worn but not too short… no skirts or dresses!
  • these activities require a qualified instructor – our instructors will have a site specific qualification or higher, assessed by an ERCA qualified assessor – if you’d like to use our high ropes activities with your own qualification you’ll need to hold an ERCA instructor qualification
  • you must provide at least one adult to supervise each activity group – you remain responsible for the supervision and pastoral care of your group at all times
