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, passed and annually assessed by the most stringent training programme conducted by the ACCT, world leaders for Challenge Course standards in installation, operation and inspection.
After a welcome local drink the excitement starts at the Old Pump House with a walk over a suspension bridge from the side of the building, which spans the gorge to the far bank. Once across the bridge, there is a 13-zip lines journey through the forest which begins as you trail to the start aerial zips, criss-crossing the 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. In total there are a series of 13 zip lines, 3 aerial walkways, 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.
You will have some short trails into the gorge and then a series of connecting zip lines and bridges, which criss-cross the gorge at tree canopy level. 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!
Within the gorge there is a series of large trees (incl the silk cotton, one of Antigua’s National Symbols), prominent boulders, a rock pool and shaded areas with interesting plant-life, a range of wild fruits, vines, mosses and lichens.
Guests are offered complimentary water on the course and a certificate of bravery upon completion of the tour.
