Participants must be able to climb stairs on towers up to 80' high, hike unpaved trails, control the speed of their travel along the zip lines by grasping the cable with leather gloves, and be able to pull themselves along the zip cable several feet in the event they lose their momentum before reaching any given platform.

This list is not complete and any guest with medical problems should notify the staff and consult their own MD for participation recommendations.
