Best Tips for Rise and Climb Adventure Course, PEI
This is not a sponsored post by Rise and Climb Adventure Course, but our family did receive a discount on tickets for our participation. All opinions are our own.
We had heard so much about the Rise and Climb Adventure Park in PEI that we had to go check it out.
When we arrived, we decided that just the boys (9,11) would participate.
Before climbing, you will need to fill out waiver forms and then have a mini training session to understand how the rope course works and how to safely clip yourself on and off the ropes.
There is a smaller course for children, but because our boys were all enough, they were allowed to go on the main course.
The main course consists of three levels, each one higher than the next. Off the second level there is a zip line and bungee jump that all participants can enjoy.
Thomas, 9, was just tall enough, so he found the rope course quite challenging. His legs weren’t quite long enough to reach the platforms from the ropes. He was able to make it safely, but he felt had he been a bit taller, it would have been easier. Thomas was happy to stay on the first level of the course.
Daniel, 11, is very tall and had no problems and no fears on the course. He covered all 3 levels of the rope course. It was still very challenging for him, and he didn’t attempt all the obstacles, but enough he felt happy with.
1. With younger children only purchase the package for the first level. We made the mistake of buying “all levels” for Thomas, who, once up on the course, realized that is all he wanted to do. At that point, there was not an option to “downgrade” the package. Still with the lower level to make sure they are comfortable.
2. Wear sneakers. You will need good shoes for this activity. No sandals.
3. Just go for it. The rope course is meant to be challenging. There were plenty of adults who were having trouble as well. Be confident, push yourself, and you will be amazed at what you can do! The boys were pretty proud of what they could accomplish!
Rise and Climb Adventure Course is located in Cornwall, PEI, right outside Charlottetown.
