“best ropes/zip line course around”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

What a blast! Why did they wait so long to add this Adventure Park to Noah's Ark Rafting? There's such a variety available. Something for everyone at every level of ambition. With multiple routes around the course, it was like a choose your own adventure. And, besides the ropes and zip lines, there's a cargo net-verticle wall, and a giant swing. We'll definitely be going back and bringing all kinds of friends/family to share the fun.

“Very Accommodating”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We were in Denver for the long weekend and were planning on driving out to St. Elmos to see a ghost town. The town was disappointing, but we saw the adventure park on the way back towards Denver and had remembered hearing good reviews from a family friend, so we stopped to check it out.

Although it was late in the day and getting towards closing time some staff members came to talk to us and made arrangements for our 10 year old to have an hour on the park before closing. After paying and signing all the forms she got to head out on the course, and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff members helped her access all the areas of the park she showed interest in and one girl on staff rode the giant swing with her right before closing.

While I would recommend making sure you had more than an hours worth of time, this place went above and beyond in making sure that we had a good time. They were all friendly, accommodating and incredibly helpful. The park its self is filled with a lot of fun things for kids, teens and adults, and it is definitely worth the drive from Denver.

“Awesome family experience!”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

We have a 12 and 14 year old and they had a lot of fun on this course. It was challenging but had a lot of variety depending on what level of difficulty you wanted. One person could choose to go one way and the other something easier or harder. We especially loved the giant swing and the "leap of faith"! The guides were very friendly and professional and gave good instructions for safety and tips on completing the course. The views from the platforms are spectacular as well!

“Challenging, fun, very safe and my favorite...no waiting!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

I've been to a handful of ropes courses/zip lines in the past 15 years and this was the best by far. People of all ages were trying elements. The beauty of this course it that many of the elements you can make more challenging if you want and less challenging for a first timer. At traditional ropes courses you have to wait for the person ahead of you to finish or get the nerve up to move forward before you can move. At this course there is virtually no waiting. If someone ahead of us needed more time we could go a different direction and return later to the element in use.

The "leap of faith" was truly heart pounding. I would consider myself somewhat of a dare-devil and it took my breath away. Talk about an adrenaline rush! Perfect for team/relationship/family building and in a beautiful location.

“Fun, Challenging, Safe & Top Notch!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

This was my second time to go through the Park. This time I went with three teen family members and had a blast! We enjoyed all three courses but there's no way you can do everything in one visit. The guides are friendly (they ask your name), helpful (no such thing as a dumb question here) and are there to make sure you are safe and have fun. You can go through the elements as slowly or quickly as you feel comfortable with. You not only depend on communicating with those around you (let's DO this!) but also challenging yourself (I can DO this!) The swing is a hoot and the Leap of Faith...you won't regret doing it! What a great way to spend a half day with the beautiful backdrop of the valley and the Arkansas River. A++++++
