Make some memories as you maneuver through this exhilarating ropes course

Make some memories and have a blast at Jordan’s Beanstalk Adventure Ropes Course.

Plus, there’s a Sky Rail zip line! You’ll be secure and connected in a full-body harness and sling line as you climb and maneuver through the course. For little kids, those under 48 inches tall, there’s the just-as-exciting BeanSprout course, with platforms less than three feet above the ground. They can climb and romp through the course, building their coordination and confidence, while an adult chaperone stands nearby to assist if needed.
