I could not believe that there was such an amazing five-level outdoor ropes course and remarkable zip line course close by in New Jersey, under an hour drive from New York City.
The adventure course and zip line course are situated in a wooded area offering delicious fresh air and shade while challenging your endurance to your limits.
The five-level adventure course has about 10-17 different obstacles. The obstacles include rope swings, scrambling walls, hanging nets, wobbly bridges and many unique obstacles. The levels get progressively higher up and more difficult. The adventure course also has a few ziplines incorporated in the set up.
The FLG X Zip Line Course is one of the largest in the East of the United States. It contains more than 30 zip lines suspended 15 to 50 feet tall with rope ladders to climb up. Flying from one base to the other is exhilarating!
After being fitted with a harness and watching a safety video, you’re on your own to explore and challenge your endurance. There are guides stationed along the way to help anyone with difficulty. The adventure course and zip line course are not too far apart. They begin and end at the same point. Once you leave any of the courses, you can’t go back up-so make sure you are definitely done before heading down.
All visitors need good grip gloves and a water bottle that can be clipped onto the harness (FLG X sells gloves and water bottles that have a carabiner clip for a small fee). Since it is a really professional and high level adventure course and zip line, there is a minimum height and age requirement for the courses.
When we visited, we decided to do the zip line course. I was skeptical when we were told to count on a few hours. I didn’t dream that it actually would take us a few hours. We were zipping from one tree to another, climbing the rope ladders. The best part was we were able to go on our own. The harness system is done in a way that you don’t need to rely on the staff to attach you. The trip was awesome! We loved every minute of it. For all the fun we had, it was worth being sore the next few days. I can’t wait to return and try the ropes course.
We finally returned to do the ropes course recently. It was all we imagined and more.
There are two separate options to choose from for level 1, 2, 3, Level 4 and 5 have only one course since not all climbers actually make it to the 4th and 5th level.
Some of the elements on the course were extremely original such as the barrels to crawl through, the skateboard zip and others.
We had such an awesome day climbing, we can’t wait to return.
