Course Description:

Welcome to the jungle, baby! The course includes going up and over the famous Beaver Bus, rugged forest country and a vineyard, daring suspension bridges, a 100 foot water slide, balance beams looking down on actual beaver dams, climbing walls, blasting geysers of water, and five creek crossings. And if you need a little break, no problem; just stop at the Lucky Bucket Lounge (situated about halfway through the course) for a free beverage or shot of Jungle Juice.
Obstacle list include:

  1. 5K The Hard Way Bus - Have you ever run up and over a huge psychedelic bus? Check that off your bucket list.
  2. Power Plunge and Fireman Climb - Jump into our refreshing creek and on the other side you'll be greeted with a very unique ladder wall.
  3. Goodyear Canyon - Venture down a steep ravine loaded with treacherous tire obstacles and a cargo climb.
  4. Arc de Tree-umph! - Pardon our French. Scale a giant ravine, and parade through a tree arch (built my Mother Nature herself).
  5. Tee Time - We give you a little break here as you run across Valley View's beautiful top 9.
  6. The Long and Wine-ding Road - You get to weave in and out of the Valley View Vineyard.
  7. Welcome to the Jungle - Welcome to the JUNGLE, baby! We want to hear you scream.
  8. Hundred Foot Water Slide - This is our soon-to-be-famous, signature obstacle. Enjoy your ride down the 100-foot water slide into the monstrous mud pit.
  9. The Monster Lounge - Feeling a little run down? Take a little break and enjoy some music, good company, and a complimentary shot of Monster Energy Drink.
  10. Bridge Over Troubled Water - You've got a choice to make. Take ""The Easy Way"" and traverse a tricky suspension bridge, or choose ""The Hard Way"" and plunge right into the creek and scale the steep bank.
  11. Tree Maze - Scramble over, under, and through giant trees and logs.
  12. TunnelVision - You can take "The Easy Way" and climb through a 20 ft. tunnel suspended over the creek, or you can take "The Hard Way" and plunge into the creek and use ropes to scale the steep wall on the other side.
  13. Beaver Balance Beams - You'll be walking on a balance beam suspended over a giant beaver dam. Look down and you just might see some of our infamous beavers.
  14. Jungle Jim - It's climbing time. This is an 18 foot climbing wall that spans the creek. And it's name is Jim.
  15. Old Faithful - Slip into the creek for a little crawl through culverts, while surrounded by blasting geyers of water.
  16. The Hard Way Mud Pit - Hey, we just wanted to make sure you got muddy. OK?
