By January 30, 2018 September 13th, 2019 No Comments

Coming Soon:  Head over to Empower Adventures Tampa Bay for our Zip Line “Go For Gold” Olympic-style competition.  Let us know if you are interested and we will put you on our list for the upcoming competition.  Date TBD.

Teams will race through the zip line course, elevated obstacles, rappelling tower and climbing elements trying to score the fastest cumulative times in 3 different events. All times will be recorded according to age brackets. We ran this very same team building program for the Tampa Bay Lightning during pre-season and they loved it!  Call our office to register your 1, 2 or 4-person team today for this special event and grab your chance to post the fastest time and win prizes. Top two times in each age group (Middle School bracket is for 5th thru 8th graders; High School bracket is for 9th thru 12th graders) will be invited back for a head-to-head championship round in March.  Contact Calvin or Joselyn to register your 1, 2 or 4 person team at 813-448-5635.  Pricing is $55 for individuals, $89 for 2-person teams and $159 for 4-person teams.

Event #1:  Zip & Sprint

This timed event will have you racing up a 65′ tower, zipping down a 650′ zip line, rappelling to the ground and sprinting back to the start line.  2 and 4 man teams run this as a relay.  1-man teams run this for their fastest time.

Event #2:  Leap of Faith Relay

This timed event will have you racing up the Leap of Faith climb, balancing on top and jumping out for one the targets at the top.  Hit the hardest target and get rewarded.  Miss the target and get punished!  2 and 4 man teams run this as a relay.  1-man teams run this for their fastest time.

Event #3:  Mission Impossible

This timed event will have you racing up the rope ladder to a 25 foot platform, balancing across the swinging log, hooking up to a rappel and sliding down the rope commando style.  2 and 4 man teams run this as a relay.  1-man teams run this for their fastest time.

Safety

At Empower Adventures Tampa Bay, we are 100% safe, 100% of the time and so we will have guides and staff members to facilitate the zip lines, climbing, leaping, jumping, rappelling at all times.  At no time will you need to figure out where or how to clip yourself into to our safety system – we do that for you.  That is the Empower difference!

The Competition

After all competitions are done we will compile the times and each division will send their top two contenders to the Championship round taking place on a day to be determined in March (during Spring Break).  We will invite the two fastest times from the Middle School division and the High School division for 1-man team, 2-man team and 4-man teams to compete head to head for the title of Empower’s Spring “Go for Gold” Champion!
