New! Goliath Challenge Course
So waaaaaaay back in October we announced to everyone that we’d be putting together a brand-new super-awesome totoally Oaktastic high ropes challenge course. And we did it!
Oakridge’s Goliath Challenge Course is raised 52 feet into the beautiful blue Oklahoma sky. It has over 30 unique elements, each of them designed to challenge individuals in problem solving, teamwork, self-esteem, leadership skills, and much more!
So strap on your lobster claws (that’s a type of adventure rope gear that you’ll be using on Goliath) and get ready for our HUGEST blog post ever, all about GOLIATH!
This was back when the course was still being built. It’s so amazing that it’s finally done!

Our whole crew at the base of the tower!
Check out all the different elements you can see from here.
Anderson learning how to climb using a device called a “cable-grab.”
Natalie, and a closer look at the cable-grab. The cable-grab is something just for facilitators to use when setting up the challenge course for guests!
Natalie going up the incline log.
Joshua and Natalie receiving instruction from Miss Betsie, who came out to train all of our staff.
Knots are a really big deal! The girls test Joshua’s knot.
Jesse makes sure that Mr. Brian is ready for adventure!
This knot is called a “bowline on a bite,” and is one of the most-used knots on the challenge course.
Here’s Brea at the top of the Pamper Pole, which is a whopping 48 feet in the air. The idea is that you jump off of the pole and try to grab at a handkerchief some feet away from you.
Jaime sets up some equipment for another element.
Rachel’s just hanging out!
Jaime show David the “ropes.” Get it?
Natalie flying around after being on the Haul Swing.

David’s pretty tall; but not as tall as Goliath!
