PARTICIPANT SAFETY SYSTEM
Before each participant ventures onto the course, they are properly outfitted with a full body harness and a redundant sling line. This redundant sling line incorporates into a continuous belay overhead tracking system on every course which prohibits participants from ever disconnecting themselves from the attraction. At the ground level, a certified operator appropriately hooks and unhooks participants into the safety system to further the safety of participants. The entire safety system grants participants the ability to self-rescue, step back on the element and continue on their way throughout the course.
Ropes Courses, Inc. wants to ensure each customer is able to enjoy the highest quality products and services so that all attractions can be operated successfully. The acquisition of new or replacement equipment can occur as it is necessary or per request of the customer.
