Ready for a seriously fun challenge? Check out Wild Blue Ropes on your next visit to Charleston. Now in its second season, this ropes course will leave you with a memorable vacation experience.
Remember the jungle gym from your childhood playground? Well, this is a jungle gym taken to a whole new level. Stretching 35 feet off the ground, this intricately designed series of rope walkways and climbing structures allow you to channel your inner Spiderman as you navigate the 72 different obstacles.
Appropriate for adults and children, the course at Wild Blue Ropes has accommodated visitors from ages 2 to 77. Climbers are outfitted in a full-body harness and helmet for complete safety. Climbers receive instruction from the staff and can try out some less-intense climbing areas before they take to the more challenging parts of the course.
With a variety of course elements, you can essentially build your own adventure, deciding which obstacles and areas you want to tackle.
