My kids and I have been to the Museum of Natural Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point (Utah) many, many times, thanks to my mom’s Grandparent’s Pass. So my kids had seen the High Ropes course and commented on it dozens of times. At the end of this summer (yes, I’m still making my way through my summer adventures) we decided that we MUST finally go to the museum just to do the ropes course.
CandyMan did the course with the older kids (four of mine and three of my sister’s kids), my mom and sister stayed down and played with the younger kids, and I ran all over the museum trying to catch pictures of them on the course.
It’s hard to tell just how high the course is since I climbed up pretty high to get these pictures, but the course is actually 40+ feet in the air, suspended above the museum. My teenagers were terrified (see them above in my favorite picture from the day) and my husband was exhausted at the end. I think the 8 to 12 year olds were actually best suited for the course. Note: there’s a minimum age of four to do the course.
If the kids want to do it again next time we’re in Utah, I think I might join them.
And now for the pictures…
Admission to the High Ropes Course is $8 with paid Museum of Natural Curiosity Admission, $12 without admission, and $7 for Thanksgiving Point Members. Everyone tired out before their time was up (You get an hour to climb and explore).
