It’s going to be 117 this weekend-do you need cooler plans? Head north to FLAGSTAFF EXTREME adventure course and don’t forget to pack your metaphorical balls.
If you had asked if I wanted to climb up a tall shaky ladder, cross a wobbly unstable broken looking bridge, zipline through the forest dodging trees and sap, and squeeze myself into a hanging barrel all while temperatures dip below 40 degrees and it’s snowing my response would normally be: NO. More likely, hell NO. However, while on my quest to Y.O.L.O (you only live once) and try things outside my comfort zone, I agreed to tackle the Flagstaff Extreme adventure course and I brought along my trusty sidekick/BFF to join in the fun. Turns out it was actually amazing. Scary at times, but an incredible upper body workout and we left with memories (and a little bit of frostbite) that will last a long time-especially because the hidden cameras in the trees document the whole ordeal.
There are 5 different courses that range in difficulty and rumor has it, only 25% of participants make it through the whole thing. The various obstacles include nets, swings, slides, zip lines, ropes, and suspended bridges in various positions. The training takes place close to the ground for about 20 minutes then it’s up in the trees you go for the real adventure. Rattling the bridges and ropes in an attempt to knock off other participants is highly encouraged, scary, and super fun, especially if it’s your friend that ate the last piece of caramel apple the night before that you had your eye on.
FLG Extreme makes the perfect cooler weather escape and is perfect for team building, family bonding, or relationship therapy. I highly suggest you book a trip and create memories, just remember if you’re afraid of heights…don’t look down.
Buy the gloves. And wear them.
Buy a water and clip at the check in point.
Allow 2.5-3 hours to complete the whole course.
