Athleticism is more than leaping over a hurdle and drop-kicking a computer after it beats you in chess. Be a good sport with this Groupon.
$89 for an Escape Package ($180 Value)
The Escape package sates fun seekers with a trio of adventuresome activities in the Sonoran Desert.The Cholla rappel tethers people to a 40-foot rock face for a partial free-hang session that demystifies the basics of the sport. During the Leap of Faith challenge, the fully harnessed thrill seeker climbs atop a 30-foot pole to take in the view before hopping toward a suspended bar. Specialized ropes and pulleys safely lower the leaper to the ground. Rounding out the Escape package, a zipline keeps airborne drifters 40 feet above the cacti and dust bunnies of the desert floor for a length of 400 feet.
Trained professional guides oversee each of Rappel AZ's rappelling and ziplining sessions. Upon arriving at the outfit's private Sonoran Desert location, groups get into the adventuring spirit by embarking with guides on a brief hike to a playground of rock and rope. Among the attractions, a zipline glides 400 feet through the valley at 40 feet off the ground, offering spectacular views of the desert. A variety of other rappelling and climbing packages provide plenty of opportunities for elevation changes, whether it's rappelling 70 feet off a mountainside or attempting a 100-foot chimney climb faster than Santa Claus. As they enjoy the breathtaking views, guests stay safe in provided harnesses for safe dangling and helmets for pumping up other rappellers with head butts.
