“A funny place”

More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: Come spend a couple of exciting hours high above the ground in the tree tops of a beautiful mature forest. Exhilarating course maneuvers and awesome views across the Bow Valley make for a special outing! Our ropes course is a great way to overcome your fears in a safe, guided environment as you navigate through a series of suspended obstacles and finish with a thrilling zipline.

I was last summer in the rope course, me and my kids enjoy an awesome time there, is a bit scary, but as soon as you forget your fear is just fun and more fun. The guides are experts, make me feel safe, they explain very carefully the use af the climbing gear, awesome experience, 100% recommended

“Adrenaline Rush - but safe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We were part of a group of couples from Calgary who visited Rafters 6 for an "adventure". There were varying levels of fitness, age (and courage) in our group, but we all did the course and had a great time. The guides were fantastic - very patient and encouraging. They were completely professional and safety is clearly a priority. I would highly recommend!

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

The guides were mature and really knew their stuff. Made you feel safe. Highly recommend it. A bit scary at first but you adapt quickly and are in a safety harness.

“A Swinging Good Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

We took a chance during our visit to Banff and Calgary and stopped at the Rocky Mountain Ropes Course and Zipline. It was one of those places that really didn't have an address and frankly, we didn't know if it was reputable at all. BUT, we wanted to try a ropes course as a family, and this was a rope experience at a reasonable price (especially in comparison to other similar activities in Banff). Turns out, it was a GREAT decision.

Our four kids (all teens) were variably nervous about doing this course. One even pronounced herself a bit afraid of heights. The guides were fabulous and professional, and the process they used felt very, very safe. By the third obstacle (of 18), the whole family was swinging in the trees 10-15 meters up with relative ease and having a blast. The guides provide encouragement and tips as we went to make the process easier.

The only two downsides of this experience were the voracious mosquitoes on the forest floor (not quite as bad in the trees) and the short zipline. But all in all, it was a really fun confidence building experience. All four kids wanted to do the ropes course again...right away.

Do bring the bug spray, though.
