Monkey C Monkey Do was a new kind of adventure for me. Let me just say this... IT WAS AMAZINGLY EPIC! I've never experienced something like this before and I hope to return soon. It gave my family and I an opportunity to spend time together and work through this course as a team. Let me rewind and start from the beginning.
When I arrived at Monkey C Monkey Do, I looked at the course and was so scared! How could anyone in their right mind go so high up in the air and successfully do those crazy obstacles? What I kept thinking: This is impossible. But, it's not.
Before I even put a harness on, the staff had us watch a short video on some safety instructions and rules. That eased my mind a lot. I wasn't just going out there blind. They're very concerned about safety there and that made me feel much more comfortable.
After I was harnessed up, I went outside to a short class that taught me how to safely clip and un-clip on the wire. AND everyone has a buddy. It's a must. Your buddy is there to make sure you're safe up in the air and support you throughout the course.
Okay... Now, let me get to the part when I walked through the first course. It wasn't too high. It felt high enough that I wanted to back out, but I pushed through and went for it. My nieces were flying through it like they were professionals. My sister and I were hesitant on taking another step.
If you're scared that you're going to fall, just keep reminding yourself that if you do fall, you aren't going very far. You'll be able to pull yourself right back up. That's what I kept thinking as I successfully got through the first level of courses. By the second level, I was starting to get the hang of it. It was still hard, but that's what was so much fun about it. I love a good challenge and it was a good way to exercise!
My nieces, sister, and I made it through the whole entire course, even out in the woods! Let me be perfectly clear, I don't exercise very much. I've never done anything like this before, but I was still able to successfully make it through the course without falling.
Monkey C Monkey Do is a great place to learn teamwork with family, friends, coworkers, etc. It's also a great place to go just to have fun! I know I had a blast.
Perks: 5 levels of courses PLUS a course in the woods, zip lines, a huge swing, outdoor laser tag, and ice cream!
Only 2 concerns: First, you have a certain amount of time to complete the course, which is reasonable, but it doesn't help if people are slow in front of you or taking their time. BUT, the staff was more than nice about giving my family and I enough time to complete the course. Two, I personally feel like there should be more staff members on the posts to help assist and help anyone who needs it. BUT, the staff there was always alert and watching everything, and if you need help, they're right there to assist you.
