This was a unique way to spend a few hours. I'm not fit and have no upper body strength but I was able to complete the adventure combo that has six different activities. Some were easy, others were a bit of a challenge, but i left the course feeling proud and accomplished afterwards. I would defiantly recommend Rock N Ropes.... More

We took a family of teenagers to this activity and even on a drizzly day they really enjoyed their experience. Great spectator sport too. THE RATING IS BASED ON THEIR ENJOYMENT.

If you're looking for something fun and different that is challenging, physically and mentally, I highly recommend Rock N Ropes! Martin and Phil are awesome guides, really helpful and patient (I have a slight fear of heights and took way longer than most people to complete the obstacles). They make sure you're having fun, push your limits and your safety... More

It was such a great experience.My instructor actually just came back for me and he was super nice. Whenever he realized that something was to easy for me, he challanged me to do something like jump on one leg. Especially the swing was awesome. Don't miss out titally worth the trip!
