INFORMATION ON BUILDING A ROPES COURSE
Before you decide to build a ropes course, ask yourself the following questions in order to help you make the right choice of products and to determine potential operating problems.
who will visit the ropes course and for what purpose (tourists, schools, families etc.)?
what age group will be predominant?
how many rope elements will the facility contain?
where will the facility be built and are mature trees available for building or will it be necessary to built on poles, and therefore how big an area is available?
what other facilities will you offer for your participants (toilets, restaurant)?
how accessible will the facility be for participants (entrance, distance from parking lot)?
will the facility be fenced off or freely accessible?
how many instructors will you have available??
will you operate year-round or seasonally?
how will you finance building the ropes course (in-house, loan, grants, subsidies…)?
