What people are saying about the High Ropes Challenge

  • "For adventurous people looking for a way to spend an afternoon, it's hard to beat the high ropes challenge. The staff is top notch, full of energy, and excited to be there. The obstacles are very challenging and at the same time a lot of fun. At a price of $10 for a student, it is an absolute steal. If you have never tried anything like it before, I would highly recommend it. It's a great change of pace." - Scott, K-State Ph.D. Student
  • "As a 50+ person, this course was great. You get 3 hours of fresh air. You play with kids half your age. You go home feeling tired but with a sense of accomplishment. For any type of group, this would be a great activity. It gets you out of your routine and lets you see your friends or co-workers in a different light. It's playing on an adult size jungle gym and it lets you see that you really can do things that you probably thought you couldn't. You really do learn something about yourself when you take a literal "leap of faith". In short, go for it." - William, Dept of Agronomy
  • "If you're looking for a way to enjoy an afternoon outside, the high ropes challenge through Rec Services is a great way. It is fun, thrilling and if you like heights or want to challenge yourself, you will really like it. It gives you a chance to do things you normally would not have a chance to do while having a blast at the same time. The heights combined with the challenges that the helpful staff lead you through give you an adrenaline rush that will make you want to come back. The time flies as you go through the course and you meet people that you might not otherwise. I loved going through the course and would suggest it to anyone that loves the outdoors and challenges. It's fun!" - Jessilyn, K-State Student
