Admission includes access to the elevated obstacle courses—four for adults, each with a different difficulty level. The entire experience takes around 2–3 hours to complete and consists of 10–17 obstacles, which range from rope swings to wobbly bridges and ziplines. Before exploring the courses, visitors must pass a 30-minute safety training, where they learn how to put on their harnesses and navigate the courses. For more information, see the park hours and the FAQs.
Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course
A shorter and equally appropriate name for Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course would be Endor. Spread throughout the ponderosa pines of Fort Tuthill County Park, the course’s rope swings, wobbly bridges, scrambling walls, and hanging nets resemble the Ewoks’ home planet in Star Wars: Episode VI. Visitors navigate these sylvan challenges—part of five elevated obstacle courses—while strapped into safety harnesses, which also help them dart through the forest via arboreal ziplines. Ground patrols and course guides add another layer of reassurance, as do the courses themselves, color-coded to signal their difficulty level. The black course, for example, is the hardest, while the yellow one is for children only, due to its simplicity and its free entry policy for invisible friends.
Flagstaff Extreme Adventure Course's newest attraction is the Adventure Zip Lines. There are more than 30 zip lines suspended from 15 to 80 feet high in the tall Ponderosa Pines. This course includes ladders and bridges and is an active, not ‘easy’, zip line experience. The course is self-guided, and each guest will receive training to prepare themselves for a day of adventure. In addition to the course, guests should be prepared for a 5-minute walk to the beginning of the course and walking between the courses.
