CYPRESS PEAK FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Is Cypress Peak safe?
A: All climbers wear state-of-the-art harnesses and climbing equipment that meets the highest industry standards. Climbing equipment employs “double-clipped-on” technology designed to keep the climber continuously connected to a secure cable throughout their time on Cypress Peak. Climbers receive an equipment briefing and opportunities to practice before climbing. Course staff members monitor climbers while they are on the course. These monitors are nearby to offer encouragement, advice, or assistance as needed. Adventure Park meets all standards of the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT).

Q: Do I have to be physically fit to complete the course?

A: Wear well-fitting clothing that won’t hang loose or get tangled in cables or ropes. We advise tying back long hair and removing all jewelry. Sneakers or hiking shoes are recommended. Flip-flops, sandals and open-toed/heeled shoes are not acceptable.
Imagine the harness. The full-body harness hits at your thighs, groin, waist, stomach, back, and shoulders. Now, double check that your clothing covers all of these points, especially your thighs and shoulders.Shorts that are to short can become uncomfortable if harness rubs.
