Our most popular teambuilding workshop,  the low ropes course is composed of constructed "elements" and numerous portable initiatives. Your might navigate an Acid River, a Spiders Web, take a trip on a Whale Watch, transport each other on a Giant A, or overcome the Team Wall. Low ropes course workshops use constructed elements as well as portable initiatives to create a mix of mental and physical challenges for your team. Some challenges are ground level while others can be up to 10 feet high but every session on the  low ropes course  is tailored to the goals and abilities of each group.
