Moab, Utah, Ropes Course Adventure New for Upcoming Season
Moab, UT– New for 2012 is a Moab, Utah, Ropes Course Adventure challenging individuals, families and corporate groups seeking team-building opportunities. The high ropes course is available alone or in combination with other outdoor adventure activities in the Moab, Utah region exclusively through Moab Adventure Center http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/.
Building on a growing corporate meetings market, bolstered now with the convenience of direct commercial flights into Moab, Utah, Moab Adventure Center has developed a three-day / two-night Moab Corporate Retreat adventure package including accommodations at Red Cliffs Ranch, dinners, wine tastings, breakfasts, a morning high ropes course emphasizing team building and bonding, a scenic off-road Hummer tour of a working cattle ranch with a cowboy-prepared cookout lunch followed by a Colorado River float trip. The package which also includes time for meetings, speakers and award ceremony is priced at $615 per person, double occupancy.
Brandon Lake, co-founder of Moab Adventure Center, anticipates that the new Moab high ropes challenge course will draw meeting planners from around the West looking for group team building activities based in the easy-to-reach Moab area.
According to Lake, “In about three hours, you can run the high ropes course, a network of ropes connected to 40-foot-high towers secured by heavy-duty bolts and cables. The payoff is having fun while building trust, confidence and communication. Professional facilitators guide guests through each station along the challenge course including a state-of-the-art climbing tower and the popular giant swing.” See :http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/ropes-course-moab-utah/
Lake says it combines elements of a uniquely crafted climbing wall with an ascent up a massive cargo net, walking on a 25-foot balance beam or riding a skateboard zip line, all 40 feet off the ground.
“The most talked-about challenge on this course is the Giant Swing! Strapped into a harness, helmet buckled tight, you launch from atop the platform and blast through the air on the largest fixed swing Southern Utah’s ever seen! The staff is experienced and trained to provide maximum safety while keeping the adrenaline levels high,” he promises, adding that staff will help guests reach their potential while “creating a supportive atmosphere where each individual’s choices and decisions are respected and honored.”
Rates for just the three-hour course alone, including extensive pre-training are $65 for ages 14 and up and $55 for ages 10 to 13. Group rates are also available. For more information please see: http://www.moabadventurecenter.com/trips/ropes-course-moab-utah/high-ropes-challenge-course.php.
