Ropes Course Overview -
Ropes course are slightly similar to 'Go Ape' or 'Adventure Quests' in that they are like assault courses but in the ariel form. However, these ropes courses concentrate of team development and personal goals and comfort zones which are not identified on "Go Ape" sessions as you tend to be left alone to navigate your way through the trees.
