The Raptor’s Nest gives Creation Museum guests the chance to move outside their comfort zones, but in a safe and thrilling environment. Aerial elements include challenges with names like Postman’s Walk, Fence Posts, Vines, Balance Beam, Burma Planks, No Hands Bridge, and Pirates Crossing to name a few! There are up to 35 exciting and often challenging activities designed to help each participant not only have fun but also realize how to overcome challenges that seem daunting.
We all want to spend more time with family and friends. With both children and adult courses available, almost the whole family or group can participate on the high ropes. While working through the course together, families and groups will have a blast watching each other negotiate difficult elements and serve as an encouragement to those who are struggling with fears!
The Raptor’s Nest also provides a great opportunity for developing camaraderie, so plan to bring your crew for a time of fun and challenge as they work together to complete this course.
Times are very limited. Please call Reservations at (800) 721-2298 before your visit to check availability and schedule a tour.
This course may last up to an hour and is suited for children 5–9 years old. Participants will move through a series of obstacles that range from three to seven feet off the ground.
One parent must accompany their child on this course if the child is unable to reach 70 inches standing flat-footed. The accompanying parent pays a discounted fee of $10, but is limited to the Children’s Course. In the absence of a parent to assist, you may request a private guide for $25 per session. We require 72 hours advance notice to arrange for a private guide.
With our closed belay system, called “Smart Snap,” there is no worry that a child can become disengaged from the cable system. There are trained facilitators on the course to assist and guide guests.
