From Easy to Epic
five Courses of Varying Difficulty
Empower Adventure Park at Nomads has five courses expanding over our 9-acre property that range from easy to epic. We offer four different difficulty levels: Yellow being the easiest, moving up to green, blue, then finally our most epic and challenging being black.
The two yellow courses are named Sapling Alley and Acorn Way. They’re perfect for kids and adults who are new to our course and want to get a feel for adventure before trying some of our more challenging courses.
Our green courses is called Maple Den, offering more balancing obstacles at roughly double the height of the yellow courses.
Our blue course is named The Willow and holds our two longest zipline courses, the second one reaching over 450 feet.
And our final and most challenging course is called The Oak Giant. This course will test your strength, balance, and emotions as you climb to heights around 65 feet, ride a saddle over our pond, and eventually make it to the end and face the epic Leap of Faith, a 65-foot jump off our final platform using our True Blue safety belay device.
