About Us

Features: The Ropes Course may be scheduled in advance for a group of 8 or more, or you can buy individual tickets to an event. A session at the Ropes Course is a great way to get to know other people. At the Ropes Course you will play group games, work together to solve puzzles, and help one another conquer the climbing tower and giant swing. The Ropes Course provides opportunities for individuals and groups to learn skills like team building, problem-solving, support, trust, and unity....

Climbing Tower: Up to six participants at a time can climb the tower while other group members safely belay them. The tower is 45 feet high, with a great view from the top.

Giant Swing: One person at a time sits in a harness suspended in the air. The rest of the participants hoist him up 30 feet. When ready, the participant releases himself to start his swinging wild ride!

Location: The Ropes Course is located at 50 W 7th S, west of the Rexburg Temple and adjoining the baseball fields.

Attire: Please dress appropriately for the weather.  Remember that evenings in the fall can be quite cool. Shorts are acceptable, but they must be modest in nature. It is recommended that you wear a closed-toe shoe. At minimum the shoe should stay on your foot. Slides and flip flops are generally not appropriate footwear.

  • ...
  • I had a lot of fun and was glad that the instructor pushed me to keep going to the top of the climbing tower! It was definitely worth it!
  • I was a bit scared at first, but because the facilitators were there to explain everything, I felt at ease and had a great time.
