Adventure Rope Course Activities

Rope Course Activities: 

Parachute Simulator

  •  Duration - 20 minutes
  • Minimum number of participants - 6 

Climb up the stairs to the top of the tower where you will be met by a member of staff.  You'll be clipped on to the descender before you step out of the door.  It's all over in a matter of seconds, but it's very scary.  Despite this, you'll be running back up the tower for another go!

Giant Swing

  •  Duration - 45 minutes
  • Minimum number of participants - 6 or 7

 In pairs, you'll be strapped into parascending harnesses dangling from wires under the bridge.  Once ready, the rest of your team will haul you back using pulley systems.  Either when you reach the top, or when you and your partner agree, you'll pull the release cord and.., go swing!

Crate Stack Challenge

  • Duration - 1 hour - 1.5 hours
  • Minimum number of participants - 8 for 2-person tower, 11 for 3-person tower
As a team of two or three, build a tower of beer crates as high as you can. As usual, there’s a twist to the tale – you’ll be constructing from the top of the tower and will rise with it.

High All-Aboard
  •  Duration - 45 minutes
  • Minimum number of participants - 6 - 12
As a team of two, three or four, climb the wobbly pole to the top.  Once there, help each other to stand up on the 'bird table' before leaning back away from each other whilst holding hands.  When you're fully laid back then you'll be asked to let go!


Adventure Tunnelling

  • Duration – 30 - 45 minutes
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
One of our most popular activities with kids and adults alike: clamber though chambers and tunnels whilst looking out for hidden numbers in order to escape at the end. The tunnels are above ground, have loads of different activities inside and are clean and dry.

Jacobs Ladder

  • Duration – 1 hour
  • Minimum number of participants - 9
As a team of two or three - climb to the top of the ladder. There’s another twist here that we prefer to keep to ourselves..., try it and discover the secret for yourself.

Climbing Wall

  • Duration – 45 minutes
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
An old favourite. This wall runs along and up the side of the tower. Our brand new design features overhangs and more challenging climbs.

Tower Abseil

  • Duration – 30 - 60 minutes
  • Minimum number of participants – 6
This is another of our most accessible activities. We have a staircase running up the middle of our tower that gives a comfortable walking ascent. Climb up the staircase where your staff member will meet you and talk you through the abseil process before helping you to lower yourself off the tower in the traditional manner. This is a great activity for getting used to heights.

Leap of Faith

  • Duration - 30 minutes - 1 hour
  • Minimum number of participants – 6
Either singly or as a team of two – climb to the top of the wobbly pole to stand on the (very small) platform on top. Once there, take a leap of faith to grab the trapeze bar before swinging and being lowered to the ground.

Sky Dive 
  • Duration - 1 hour - 1.5 hours
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
This is the scariest and most full-on activity that we have (and therefore have a minimum age limit of 16).  It's the only one if its' kind in the UK (and for good reason).  You'll be strapped on to FOUR independent ropes on the bridge before being roped back to a 45 degree angle.  Once there, your instructor will pull the release cord and you'll fall away under the bridge for one of the most memorable rope swings that you'll ever experience!


Non-Rope Course Activities:

Archery

  • Duration 2 -3 hours
  • Minimum number of participants - 6

Using traditional recurve bows, we'll teach you all you need to know to be able to hit the target safely and (hopefully) accurately.  We have lighter bows for less muscly people.  It's an addictive sport and great fun.  We can also come to you with this activity if you have an open space available.

Bushcraft and Survival

  • Duration - 3 hours +
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
We have our own dedicated Bushcraft school within the grounds of The Albrighton Hall Hotel & Spa where we can teach you the ancient art of lighting fires and finding and cooking a meal.  We'll also have a go at making shelters you'll learn to use lots of tools and techniques.  It's a team-based event and very rewarding.  We can also come to your venue if it's suitable.

Foil Fencing

  • Duration 3 hours +
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
The sport of Fencing was highlighted in the 2012 Olympics.  We'll give you all the gear that you need and teach you the basics before encouraging you to have a go at duelling.  It's an unusual sport and once you've tried it, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much fun it is.  We can also come to you if you have a suitable indoor space.
 
 
Teamworking, Communication and Leadership Tasks
  • Duration - 1 hour to a full day and beyond
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
The whole ethos of The Adventure Rope Course has come from our passion for Learning in the Outdoors, We use the 3 R's as a framework for how we help our participants to learn:  Respect for Yourself, Regard for Others and Responsibility for Our Actions.  When we develop new tasks, we have the following rules in mind:  it must engage a team of 6 - 12, it must be inclusive regardless of personal ability and there must be lots of ways to solve it.  We have over 100 tasks lasting from 15 minute energisers to full day projects and they are as diverse as the groups that we work with.

Mountain Walking

  • Duration - full day
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
We have some fantastic mountain ranges right on our doorstep and would be pleased to show them off to you.  Whether it's a gentle walk around stunning waterfalls in Mid Wales or scrambling up a scary Peak in Snowdonia, we have the skills, the equipment and the experience to have them talking about it for months afterwards.

Crag Climbing and Abseiling

  • Duration  - half to full day
  • Minimum number of participants - 6
 We have some great crags in and around Shropshire if it's a quick blast that you're after, but we'd be happy to take you anywhere for the full rock climbing experience.
