3 reasons high ropes courses make the perfect hen do

Posted on Jan 06, 2017

When it comes to hen dos we’ve pretty much been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt. Daft outfits, fine dining, strippers, dancing, and copious amounts of alcohol are often involved. If you’re looking to plan a hen do with a difference, high ropes courses are the solution you’ve been dreaming of.

Here are three reasons to chose high ropes courses for your hen do…

1. They’re unique

High ropes courses are seriously different. They have only truly risen to popularity in recent years and most people have never been on one – at least not as an adult! Each course is different and offers its own completely unique challenges. They’re so far from the run of the mill activities for hen do’s that you’ll get bonus points for ingenuity as well as fun!

2. They’re healthy, vibrant, and outdoors

Many of the activities usually associated with hen dos are inside and rather damaging to your health. Heavy drinking and over-indulging in food isn’t the healthiest way to spend your day. If, however, you’ve worked up a great appetite on a high ropes course before hand, and burnt a massive amount of calories running around the course and climbing, suddenly dinner isn’t quite such a guilty pleasure. Rather, it’s the hard-earned reward gifted to triumphant high ropes champions! In addition, it has the added bonus of being outdoors in the fresh air and beautiful countryside, mitigating the fact you will likely spend all evening in a bar or club, and the next two days in bed sleeping it off!

3. Trust building

When you get your girls together for your hen do there are often a lot of people from different parts of your life. Your oldest friends from childhood, college and university class mates, colleagues, family, and of course the future in-laws. Chances are a lot of them don’t know each other well, and it may be you haven’t seen some of them for a long time. Getting your girls around the high rise ropes really builds trust and a sense of team spirit. You all have to cheer each other on, help each other out – making sure everyone’s involved and nobody’s left behind. It’s the mother of all ice breakers, and by the time you make it to dinner there will be a lot more love and a lot less awkward silence!
