After your orientation and being briefed by our fully trained and experienced Rangers your exciting tour begins!
The tour offers uncompromised safety on a complete double wire throughout with a Double Redundant system. Your state of the art harness and safety helmet are from the world’s leaders in challenge course equipment. All our Rangers have attended and passed the most stringent training programme conducted by the ACCT, world leaders for Challenge Course standards in installation, operation and inspection.
Commencing at the Old Pump House, you walk over a suspension bridge from the side of the building, which spans the gorge to the far bank. Once across the bridge, your remaining *28-element thrilling journey through the forest begins, as you trail to the first aerial zip, and continue onto the others which criss-cross the verdant gorge.
There are zip lines of 52 feet to 328 feet in length. The geography of the gorge dictates that you are above the treetops for large parts of the run – entering a corridor in the foliage at either end. There are a series of *12 zip lines, 9 typical challenge elements, 1 tree house and 2 suspension bridges giving a bird’s eye view of the flora and fauna in the rainforest whilst listening to the numerous bird species.
The gorge is full of interesting plants and fruits and has a definite ‘tropical’ feel to it especially when you take a break in our tree house, hidden from the rest of the world!
There are also a series of large trees (incl the silk cotton, one of Antigua’s National Symbols), prominent boulders, a rock pool, small waterfall and a shaded area with interesting plants, wild fruits, vines, mosses and lichens.
Guests are also offered complementary water on the course and a certificate of achievement.
