What You Can Gain From a High Ropes Course

Look, I’ll be the first to admit that I was TERRIFIED of heights. To be fair, I wasn’t afraid of heights until I went cliff jumping. I jumped from the highest cliff I could find without thinking about it twice. Halfway down I realized that I didn’t really like the feeling of falling all that much. Needless to say, that was the last time I did that. In fact, I wouldn’t even think about going high up (anywhere) until I went to Climb Vegas, an indoor ropes course in Las Vegas. Climbing in a safe environment like that can really show you what you can gain from a high ropes course! Here are the main things that you can benefit from by visiting an indoor ropes course!

What To Expect From a Ropes Course

When you visit an indoor ropes course, it’s nothing like cliff diving (or any kind of diving for that matter). In fact, it’s something so unique and fun that I’m pretty sure that anyone can find something incredibly fun about it. Here are the three main things to expect when you show up to a ropes course:

1. When you show up, be sure that you’ve emptied all of your pockets and your valuables are safe with somebody in your group. You don’t want your iPhone to fall from the third-story of this ropes course!

2. Before you start, an attendant will safely secure you with a body harness that is attached to a safety rail above you. This will keep you safe in the event that you slip and fall. You won’t really fall, you’ll kind of just hang there until you put your foot back on the rail or rope.

3. It’s completely safe! You’re harnessed in and the only thing that you have to do now is to give yourself permission to have fun by going on an adventure at a 3-story ropes course in Las Vegas!

Learn Teamwork

If you go to a ropes course with a group of friends, teammates, or coworkers you’ll have a really cool time together. Even though you can take on challenge course on your own, going in a group is a great way to learn how to work together. Teamwork requires learning a lot of little things like communication, encouragement, trust, and comradery by shared experience. And what better experience to bond over than an adventurous ropes course!

Trust (In Yourself and in Others)

If you’re afraid of heights, taking the first step off of the safety of a ledge and making your way across a balance beam, tightrope, or Lilly pads can be difficult. The way you overcome this is by trusting in yourself enough to know that you have the physical and mental fortitude to make it across. After all, if you trust yourself to take one step, then another, and another— there’s nothing that you can’t accomplish one step at a time. You can work out this trust at a ropes course much like you would work out any muscle at a gym. It just takes practice and commitment.
