(GALVESTON, TX) — Are you up for a challenge?  Try the new ropes course and zip line opening Saturday at Moody Gardens in Galveston.

It is the tallest attraction of its kind on the Gulf Coast, standing 5 stories tall.  The ropes course includes 48 obstacles of varying difficulties.  Some are very easy, some are not.

There are height and weight restrictions.  You must be at least 48 inches tall and no more than 300 pounds. For kids under 48 inches tall, there is a kid-sized version of the ropes course available.

Participants can work their way through all the different challenges or go straight for the zip line, which takes you on a 1,000-ft round trip ride across Moody Gardens Palm Beach and Lazy River.  You’re able to see the Moody Gardens Pyramids, the beach and more from 60 feet off the ground.

Safety is key, and the designers of the course have gone to great lengths to make sure everyone has a good time and no one gets hurt.  So, enjoy!
