For Ian’s birthday I purchased tickets to go ziplining at Go Ape from groupon. Due to our crazy summer schedules we had postpone our date until this past weekend.
When we arrived we signed our waiver and got harnessed up by the instructors then began the safety instructions.
After we were all trained we walked over to site one where our instructors walked us through the 1st obstacle course and zipline. Then we were basically on our own. This was different from other places we’ve zipped in that the instructor/guide did not stay with our group.
Because we chose one of the hottest days EVER we took our time. There were 5 sites total and each site had a set of ropes courses to advance through before getting to the zipline. Some were easy some were challenging and others simply weren’t going to happen.
Here I am taking a break on one of the platforms. It was extremely hot and humid. And I’d just finished one of the more challenging ropes. Compared to previous zipline experiences, I found this one to be a lot more enjoyable. The addition of the ropes courses were fun and made the course last longer. Also, at GoApe there isn’t a time limit. You can stay on the courses until they close.
I blogged a lot of the out experience. The link to my YouTube is below.
