Rappelling originally was invented for just two functions: sneaking hamburgers over the Berlin Wall and jazzing up presidential entrances to State of the Union addresses. Dangle diplomatically with this Groupon.
$89 for a Rock ‘n’ Yoga Package ($180 Value)
During the three-hour Rock ‘n’ Yoga package, instructors lead guests in a combination of Kundalini yoga and top-rope climbing. The session begins with an hour of beginner/intermediate Kundalini yoga in the open-air activity ramada, where students can soak up views of the valley. Next, students will spend two hours learning top-rope climbing skills under the tutelage of an experienced instructor. The instructors infuse the lesson with yoga poses that can increase your strength specifically for rock climbing, and the session ends in an optional deep-breathing yoga exercise for 15 minutes of post-climb recovery.
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.
