Come join us for an adventure in the trees as we participate in an obstacle course built way up high off the ground! Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course is a test of your strength and courage and you climb, crawl, balance, and fly through the air, all while dozens of feet up off the ground. You work your way through four different courses (green, blue, red, and black), each progressively harder than the last. It takes about 3 +/- hours to complete to whole event.
This video will give you an idea of what it's like.
HOW TO DRESS (from the vendor's FAQ): Appropriate footwear and clothing is required for safety purposes: We recommend that you wear fingerless gloves; do not wear open-toed shoes; no flipflops; no slip-on shoes; no loose baggy clothing or shirts wrapped around the waist; long hair must be tied back; secure eyeglasses and, we strongly recommend no jewelry - especially necklaces or loose bracelets which could get caught in equipment. As well, we recommend that you wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirt or sap on (they’re trees, it just happens). Guests can be refused access to the course if they do not have appropriate clothing to meet our safety standards. We also recommend long pants if you are planning on going through all the adult courses due the Pirate Rope during which you will drag/use your legs on a thick woven rope. For our female participants we recommend longer shorts or yoga or workout tights. For males we recommend longer shorts, workout clothing or similiar.
TO PARTICIPATE: call FLAGSTAFF EXTREME at[masked] and join the "Trail Mix" group reservation. You'll need to pay them for your spots. Once you've done that, RSVP here so we know you're coming.
