Aerial adventure parks and ziplines are popping up all over the world. Most are safe, and accidents are rare. A few techniques help ensure safety on a high ropes course. Zip lines used to be the stuff of National Geographic features. Biologists swung through the treetops of a Costa Rican jungle to study monkeys or research the arboreal ecosystem, while everyone else watched in awe on television. But in recent years, recreational zip lines and the related high ropes courses have popped up in places ranging from Alaska to South Africa, and in every environment in between. An aerial adventure park might be constructed of a series ...

Ropes courses offer a unique opportunity for individuals and groups alike to face fears, overcome challenges, and gain a deeper sense of personal confidence and support.

Everett Potter's Travel Report: St Anton, Austria: High Ropes in ...
"St. Anton is more sporty than Lech," a local told me. "Lech has charm, but we have more demanding ski terrain that attracts a younger crowd."     Good point, one that helps explain why St. Anton has more late-night bars than Lech, to the west. Still, I might have replied that St. Anton, with its house museum and traditional hotels, has plenty of charm, too. Or that St. Anton's fast railroad connection with the Zurich airport is more charming than any dirndl.     But I wasn't there to sell St. Anton to locals. I was there to test myself on the high ropes course, one of many ... market research, surveys and trends

Meaningful involvement opportunities in ropes course programs ...
Recreation programs are considered an effective strategy for promoting positive personal and societal outcomes and alleviating negative outcomes--especially for youth. Benefits-based programming in the 1990s led researchers and practitioners to deliberately design programs where participants realized specific benefits (Driver, 1999). Initial research suggests structured recreation programs create positive change when they provide challenging activities which demand effort and concentration (Eccles & Barber, 1999; Hultsman, 1996; Larson, 2000). Ropes Course Programs and Research Ropes course programs are highly congruent with the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Greg Sellnow: Out West there's danger and adventure
I have never been real comfortable with heights (cleaning our home's second-story gutters on a ladder takes me to the edge of my comfort zone). Although I grew up in one of the premier lakes regions in the country, I've never been much for open water (it's the one thing that's held me back from attempting a triathlon). And I'm mildly claustrophobic, so I've never been that thrilled about riding in things I can't stop and get out of when I want � like planes, trains and the Zipper or Octopus at the county fair. So, I surprised even myself last week when I agreed to: A) Take a 27-hour train ride. market trends, news research and surveys resources

rafting near Chicago | Ask MetaFilter
Trying to plan a bachelor's party for a buddy next month and have in mind driving somewhere for good camping and rafting. Our group has varying skill, experience and anxiety levels. One of us may not be able to take part in the rafting, so good campgrounds is a must as well. Does anybody have any specific recommendations or general advice? Thanks! Flying, I hope? Whitewater requires changes in elevation, so the flatter parts of the country are not so good. I've rafted the New River in WV several times, and it's great fun. Also totally manageable for beginners. Are you driving? That's going to make things ...
