What is a Ropes Course?

Tollymore National Outdoor Centre’s High Ropes Course consists of a range of personal and team challenge tasks, suitable for those aged 10 years and over. Ropes courses have been used for many years in outdoor centres, providing memorable, enjoyable experiences in a safe environment.

Adventure activities, such as ropes courses can teach people of all ages valuable skills for use in life, such as:

  • Enhancing group cooperation, team work and leadership skills;
  • Promoting problem solving, critical thinking abilities;
  • Building confidence and self-esteem; and
  • Increasing awareness of own skills and abilities to name a few.

With a challenging high ropes, balance and coordination skills course and a less strenuous but equally enjoyable low ropes course, there is a choice of activities for all abilities.

How do we know? Because every day we get emails and phone calls asking when will courses resume and with every NI Executive mention of easing of restrictions the emails and phone calls are more frequent……
