Sensation Course

«  »

It's fast. It's exhilarating. It's challenging!

Sensation is the pinnacle of the four-course Zip Wild complex. Imagine standing several stories above the forest floor on a wood platform in the midst of the fir-tree canopy. The only way forward is straight out of a Tarzan movie, and it’s called a Jane Swing. Grab a rope. Jump off the platform. Swing 30-to-40 feet and catch a suspended net.

There are a dozen challenges to go with five zip lines on the toughest course in the Northwest. Sensation takes you as high as 80 feet – the height of an eight-story building – into the trees and pushes you to rise to great emotional summits, too.  

You'll be attached to a safety line at all times, so while there’s a feeling of danger, there’s also the knowledge of being securely clipped in.

Sensation Course obstacles:
  • Monkey Ropes, a series of suspended rope loops into which participants must step on as they cross from one platform to the next. They’re slanted upward, so climbing through them requires both core strength and balancing skill.
  • Cherokee Net, a half net with larges spaces in between. To conquer this obstacle between platforms, you must pull yourself through one piece of net to get to the next segment.
  • Monkey Bridge (an option to the Jane swing). This is a very small tightrope bridge that requires participants to maneuver around a tree - a difficult feat of balancing skill.
  • Tyrolean Zip Line, designed to be slow enough that you won't have the momentum to get to the next landing site. You'll be about 15 feet short and must pull yourself along, hand over hand, to get to the platform.
  • Tightrope walker, a slack line so loose that it takes a great deal of balancing prowess to make it across.
