Teamwork is most effective in pairs, from the vaudeville acts of Laurel and Hardy to the crime-fighting melodies of Batman and Garfunkel. Reap the benefits of a sidekick with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a ropes-course adventure for two on the High Course Challenge from Adventureworks in Kingston Springs (a $130 value).
Adventureworks' team of skilled adventurers instills ethics of teamwork and leadership as they guide climbers of all experience levels through forested ropes courses, including the High Course Challenge. Over the course of two hours, pairs gradually ascend narrow catwalks and intricate rope webs suspended among towering trees and vibrant green foliage. Adventuring pairs encounter different challenges at each section, passing frequent points where they can exit in the event of being offered a lift by a passing bird. At the end of the course, participants can re-embrace gravity as they soar back to earth on a giant swing. As members of the Association for Experiential Education and the American Society for Training and Development, Adventureworks' adept staff draws on extensive backgrounds in education, fitness training, and mental health.
Staffers at Adventureworks understand that the best adventures are the ones that take you out of your element. That's why they've outfitted their locations in Arkansas and Tennessee with activities that pair visitors with the wonders of their surrounding environments. In Sevierville, that means swinging through the canopy in a two-level treetop adventure course that also boasts ropes courses, cargo nets, and broken bridges straight out of a Hollywood action flick. The high-altitude feat ensures guests will challenge nature and confront their fears in an environment that is both safe and entertaining.
