The Big Adventure Course is the pride of Rise and Climb. It took two years to plan, design and construct. After researching dozens of ropes courses we carefully laid out a series of elements that have proven to be fun, challenging and stretching both physically and mentally.
Our course is spread across three levels of poles scaling 40 feet off the ground with over 50 elements and zip lines to enjoy! Our elements include swinging bridges, suspended bridges,tight ropes, zip lines, 40 foot plunge, human spider web and much, much more!
Some of our best features are highlighted below:
Create Your Own Adventure
Ours is a POD course meaning there's no fixed route. It is full of intersections and when you arrive at one you decide which way to go. If you want to skip an element you can. If you want to repeat a favourite, feel free. Everyone creates their own adventure at
their own comfort level.
Climb Only to Your Comfort Level
Our course contains three levels (Green, Blue and Black). The first level (Green) starts at 15 feet off the ground, the second (Blue) is just shy of 30 feet and the third level (Black) is approximately 40 feet off the ground. At Rise and Climb you just pay for the levels you want to do.
Linear vs POD Courses
Our course is NOT linear. Ours is a Pod course. Pod courses are built with intersections. Each platform connects 2-4 elements which gives our climbers the power to choose their route. This also leads to a better group experience as members of your group are more likely to bump into each other as they all choose different paths. Members on a lower level can still interact with members on a level above them and you don't get stuck behind anyone moving slower than you.
Our adventures all begin with gear and Ground School Training. Everyone is equipped with a helmet, harness and a belay system. Package details are outlined below.
Contains the first level of 16 elements. Entry and exit is by ladder or climbing wall and the platforms are about 15 ft off the ground. The elements are quite user friendly and gets you comfortable with your safety system and accustomed to heights.
First time climber? Warm up on the easier elements found on the outer perimeter before attempting the inside ones.
1.5 to 2 hrs to complete.
For those who want to experience the entire course. You'll get to do everything in the Green and Blue Levels but ALSO have access to Level 3. The third level is about 40 feet off the ground! The view is amazing and the wind in your hair is exhilarating. The elements are more demanding and extremely rewarding. To get down why not take The Plunge! - basically walking off the plank and plunging to the ground from over 40 feet!
2.5 to 3 hours to complete.
