Aerial Adventure Park Package
Aerial Adventure Park and Rafting
An Aerial Adventure Park like this one is hard to explain but it could be summed up as Spiderman meets Indiana Jones. Aerial Adventure Parks are relatively new to the United States so chances are you haven’t seen one before now. Imagine a string of interconnected “elements” suspended up off the ground. An element, by the way, is a component of the course such as swinging bridges, swinging logs, cargo nets, balance beams, tunnels, and other things that pose a challenge to you, the participant. These elements are suspended between 60 foot telephone poles and wooden platforms that are at varying heights within the course. The best way to explain this kind of new adventure park is to see it in action. Check out the video at the bottom of the page to really get an idea of what you will experience.
The course was designed and built by Swiss Alpine engineers and is built to current industry standards, including those of the Association for Challenge Course Technologies as well as the specifications and safety standards of the state of Colorado. Top-of-the-line safety features and well-trained staff round out the quality and safety commitment of the aerial adventure park. There are 9 different courses within the complex, all coded similar to difficulty levels used by ski resorts; greens, blues, black diamond, and of course, the most difficult, the double black diamond. Guests are fitted with gear, given a safety briefing, instructions, and then off they go! A “Smart Belay” system keeps the participant clipped to the safety cable at all times. The self-guided adventure lasts approximately 2.5 hours, including approximately 30 minutes total time for processing of waivers, safety briefing, and training, and a short transport to the activity site. Guides are onsite to assist with any issues. Participants ages 8 and up in reasonably good health and fitness can experience this great new adventure.
The great news is that this Aerial Adventure Park can be added to either the wild Royal Gorge or the milder Bighorn Sheep Canyon rafting trips. There is about a one hour scenic drive up Bighorn Sheep Canyon from our Raft Masters Arkansas River Office to the Aerial Park, but it is worth it! Don’t forget, check out the Video at the bottom of the page!
We also have this option as an afternoon raft and a sunset aerial park adventure with a dinner at the Royal Gorge’s “Cafe 1230”!
