NOTICE: We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Summit Ropes until further notice. This is not a decision taken lightly and we are closely following guidance from the CDC, state and local governmental health authorities and city officials. We thank you supporting our mission of keeping families and groups connected through adventure and appreciate your patience during these unique times.
This one-of-a-kind indoor adventure park consists of 16,550 square feet of ropes course with integrated Via Ferrata climbing. Fun for all ages, Summit Ropes is divided into Scout’s Landing, our smaller course designed for ages 4-6 years and Zion Summit, our advanced course for ages 7 and up. Both courses offer challenging activities that engage participants’ mind and body. Guests wear a full-body climbing harness and utilize a smart belay system to ensure safety at all times on the course.

The essence of a modern via ferrata is a steel cable which runs along the route and is periodically (every 1 to 10 metres (3.3 to 32.8 ft)) fixed to the rock. Using a via ferrata kit, climbers can secure themselves to the cable, limiting any fall. The cable can also be used as aid to climbing, and additional climbing aids, such as iron rungs (stemples), pegs, carved steps and even ladders and bridges are often provided. Thus via ferratas allow otherwise dangerous routes to be undertaken without the risks associated with unprotected scrambling and climbing or the need for climbing equipment such as ropes. They offer the relatively inexperienced a means of enjoying dramatic positions and accessing difficult peaks, normally the preserve of the serious mountaineer; although, as there is a need for some equipment, a good head for heights and basic technique, the via ferrata can be seen as a distinct step up from ordinary mountain walking. Conversely, the modest equipment requirements, ability to do them solo, and potential to cover a lot of ground, mean that via ferratas can also appeal to more experienced climbers.
We will be raffling 2 Free Passes to Summit Ropes every month.
