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 $75, you and a friend get to experience the High Course Ropes Challenge at Adventureworks in Kingston Springs, which is less than an hour's drive from downtown Nashville (a $130 value).
Seated in an elegant safety harness, Tarzan hopefuls will fly through a 40-acre old-growth forest on a series of ropes on Adventureworks's high-challenge course. If your keen intellect and quick wit need more stimulation than leaves and branches, glean sage wisdom from an Adventureworks guide as he or she points out the passing native flora and fauna. The two-hour course tests swingers by forcing them to communicate with fellow danglers, take on new and increasingly difficult challenges at each section, and commit to one giant swing. Ropes-course challenges must be scheduled in advance.
- The ropes course tests your partnering skills, while you work through an obstacle course in the trees. It lasted about two hours, and continued to challenge us. What a great, and different way to spend a Sunday afternoon. – Alisha B., Yelp
- it was soo much fun! i cant wait to go back and do it again – adrenalinejunkee, CItysearch

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.
