Ready to take on the challenge of the Character Challenge Course? We certainly are!

At Character Challenge Course Park Rapids, there are high and low ropes courses, as well as the infamous Challenge Course to give your family day out a big of excitement!

Do you think you're up for the challenge? Let's see shall we! The High Ropes Challenge Course is filled with heart pounding and challenging elements that let kids build self-confidence, improve their fitness and balance, and have an amazing time! They say if you can climb a ladder, you will be just fine!

The Challenge Course is great for the parents too, so no excuses! 

You have to make your way across a series of cables, as well as platforms, AND ropes all of which are about 35 feet in the air. Pretty scary stuff!

All of the elements of the course are built into the pines, so you will be surrounded by beautiful nature as you make your way to the finish line. Don't worry - there is a safety system that will make sure you don't have to worry about looking down!

Did we also mention that there is a 370' zip line ride at the end of it? Nope? Well, we're mentioning it now!  From vertical climbs, bridges, and walking on separated planks, the Challenge Course will make you feel like a champion when you complete it!

Don't forget to try out the 3G Swing - an amazing solo element that gives on of the biggest thrills at the center! Just jump off the top of a 22 telephone pole...not something that happens everyday! 

What's great about the Character Challenge Course, is that the staff are there to help, so if you want to talk about overcoming fears, or reaching goals, or working as a team, they are happy to help! 

We'll ask again now - are YOU ready to take the challenge!?
