Both courses have a two pulley and line system to ensure safety. We also require everyone to wear helmets and leather gloves on each trip. Our courses were built by a professional builder and approved by the City Builder Inspector.

We work in close cooperation with the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT), as they are one of the premier companies in setting the standards in course installation, inspection, and operation.
