Take to the Trees: Go Ape Ropes Course

Please join the WA Backpackers as we take to the trees in this Treetop Adventure at Rock Creek Regional Park on Sunday 20th July 2014 at 4:30pm. We will meet & carpool at 3:30pm and leave at 3:45 SHARP from Rockville Kiss & Ride (free on weekends). Please indicate if you need a ride from the metro. We have to arrive at Go Ape promptly at 4:00PM for debrief before our 4:30pm start time.

RSVPing and BOOKING: After RSVPing on this meetup please call (800)[masked] and book your reservation.  As of 1pm 7/16 only two more spots left on our 430pm time slot. Those who have already signed up under my reservation should be receiving 10% refund to your credit cards soon. If you dont see that, by next week, please let me know.

What is a Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course?

Go Ape Treetop Adventure Course is an outdoor experience that provides participants 2-3 hours of outdoor fun and exercise. The result is spectacular. The course allows participants to explore the park from an otherwise unobtainable vantage point while navigating through the treetops using zip lines, obstacles and tarzan swings. We start by equiping participants with harnesses, pulleys and carabiners, give them a 30 minute safety briefing and training and let them loose into the forest canopy, free to fly on zip lines, swing through the trees, and observe the surroundings. Of course, instructors are always on hand, regularly patrolling the forests. The course gets the adrenalin pumping, gets people out of their comfort zones and above all, it’s a great outdoor activity.

Hope you can join us on another adventure to test your fear of heights! I am determined to either scare myself to death or learn to have a "normal" fear of heights! So Come, Come; we'll have Fun, Fun!
