Challenge your agility, balance and strength as you encounter the five-tier Sky Trail® Ropes Course, the tallest Steel Ropes Course on the Gulf Coast! Ranging from Criss-Cross Tight Ropes to Burma Buckets, the 81-foot Ropes Course is filled with 48 fascinating obstacles suitable for the whole family to enjoy. Each participant is outfitted with a full body harness and a safety lanyard or sling line. This unique system also allows participants to choose their path through the course while going at their own pace with the ability to pass other participants at each platform.
Children between the ages of 2 through 7 can even take on an adventure of a smaller scale on the Sky Tykes™ Ropes Course that is appropriate for those who are 48 inches and under. The open course design allows for easy parent participation for any level of assistance needed. Parents can walk along side their child or simply step back and watch the smiles grow.
Thrill seekers can now take adventure to a whole new level at the Moody Gardens Zip Line. Snap into your harness and step to the edge of the zip line platform and glide over Palm Beach and the Lazy River 60 ft. in the air for a bird’s eye view of the Moody Gardens pyramids and tropical gardens.
