The climbing courses range from easy to difficult, with many different challenges on over 130 platforms that include cable, wood, and rope to form bridges and zip lines.

Children as young as 7 years old can participate. 

The longest zip-line in the park is about 100-feet long and takes 25 to 35 seconds to go through.
