Please review our SAFETY CHECKLIST below.

Safety is our FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT RULE. All equipment and structures conform to state safety regulations and the guidelines established by the Association for Challenge Course Technology. Everyone participating is required to attend the safety demonstration by our trained instructors prior to starting the course. Carolina Treetop Challenge uses secure, expertly engineered structures, quality materials, and construction by Outplay Adventures, an industry leader in outdoor climbing adventure parks. Our courses undergo continuous inspection, from the equipment to the trees.

In the 30 minutes demonstration live training session you will put on your harness and be adjusted. The training guide will show you how to attach yourself to the safety lines, transition cables, zip lines and more. It is important to pay complete attention as this training will teach you the guidelines of managing the equipment. This equipment has been designed for your own personal safety for use as you travel from tree to tree. In order to complete the courses you must show you have the ability to USE THE EQUIPMENT properly. After our training guide confirms that you know how to safely use your equipment you will be given the go ahead to proceed to the course.

You will also be instructed where the exit points are positioned at any time. If you decide to climb down from the course or need to be rescued at any time, your climbing adventure is over for the day.
