Frequent Questions About Atlanta Challenge's Ropes Courses
Are ropes courses safe?
Our courses are designed, built, maintained and run by ropes course experts. We use industry-approved safety equipment at all of our ropes course sites. On a ropes course the actual risk is very low. It is the perceived risk that provides powerful experiences that can be used to foster personal and team growth.
What is the difference between low and high ropes course challenges?
During Low Ropes Course challenges, the focus is on the full team. These activities draw on the knowledge and ideas of every group member and require the participation and cooperation of the entire team for success. Typically these elements are 1-2 feet off the ground and do not require ropes or harnesses.
The High Ropes Course challenges provide further opportunities for teamwork with an additional emphasis on individual challenges. The high elements provide opportunities for participants to expand their comfort zones, sometimes dramatically, and to overcome fears that can block personal development and achievement. We encourage interaction on the high elements by having team members control the belay system and provide support for the climbers, which is critical to success on the high elements.
Do our participants
have to be in good shape?
The beauty of ropes courses is that almost anyone can participate, regardless of physical ability or athletic experience. There are no failures on the ropes course. We use a “challenge by choice” approach so that each participant measures success by his or her own aspirations. People with extreme health conditions or injuries should use extra caution.
What if some people are
afraid of heights?
If someone is afraid of heights, simply climbing a foot or two up a tree can be a major accomplishment and source of pride. If a participant chooses not to attempt an activity, we respect this decision and offer other ways in which the person can participate including providing support through belaying, coaching or spotting.
What if the weather is bad the day of our ropes course
Typically ropes course team building programs will run rain or shine. Participants often tell us that inclement weather actually added to the excitement and level of adventure of their ropes course team building program. In the event of lightning or high winds we will take a break to see if the weather clears and use our indoor elements. Some of our locations have indoor space available where we can take portable low rope activities and continue the adventure.
long does a ropes course or other team building event take?
We can customize a ropes course or other team building program for a half-day, full day or multi-day, depending on your needs, but most groups do about 4 hours.
Can you do something at my
Yes. We have a number of different activities and portable low rope challenges that we can bring to your location, inside or outside.
What are your hours?
Whatever you want them to be! Since our programs are for groups that pre-arrange an event with us, we do not have set hours. Event times are determined by your schedule and daylight hours.
Can I just show up?
All of our programs are for groups of 10 or more that have set an appointment. We apologize, but we are unable to accommodate individuals, couples, or walk-ons.
