As versatile as a good sweater vest, rope can be used to lasso stray alpacas, hold up pants, and prove Maniac Magee's impressive knot-untying skills. Explore this miracle cord's myriad functions with today's Groupon: for $45 you get a two- to three-hour ropes course and zipline experience with Adventura (a $90 value), whose challenge course is located near the Redhook Brewery in Woodinville. This Groupon is only valid Saturdays or Sundays through October 1, 2010.
Adventura aims to get people outdoors to play, learn, and grow on a ropes course that promotes physical and mental development while working the hard-to-reach Trapezius Artist muscle. Though normally a corporate team-building facility, the course is also open to families and friends. Individuals without groups will be paired up with others, setting the stage for favorable friend making and awkward doppelganger encounters. The course includes a 50-foot cargo-net climb, state-of-the-art zipline exit, and 15 variations of cable crossings—all culminating in the final test: dodging a tremendous mallet wielded by the hand of Zeus. A continuous belay system facilitates easy, efficient ambulation from one course element to the next.
Located in the heart of Woodinville wine country, Adventura's grounds look out on to the verdant Pacific Northwest countryside. Grass lawns, picnic tables, a scenic view of the valley, and a proximity to the Redhook Brewery provide enough sustenance to satisfy the voracious appetite of any empty day. Upon returning home, many will find themselves rejuvenated and transformed into a pneumatic steel bird commonly seen soaring majestically across the horizon.
Reservations are required and based on availability.
At its core, the Adventure Park at Redhook is a "jungle gym built for adventurers." But more than that, it provides visitors with an escape from the everyday drudgery of stuffy offices, boring paperwork, and tedious leg-walking. For the park’s creators, the lush Woodinville Wine Country that stretches out around the park is the office. They’re a band of adventurers themselves, and they designed Adventura as a way for others to experience the growth, laughter, and connections that seem to bloom naturally outdoors in the newly expanded facility.
Of course, with the park typically booked 21 days in advance, visitors can be found leaping from decks, balancing precariously on cables 50 feet off the ground, or scaling cargo nets March through November.
