You must sign an adult or child release form for these activities.
Adventure Activities are on a first come first serve basis. You cannot sign up for them after you arrive. We are obligated to pay Bonclarken for all who are scheduled
You must be at least 6 years old and the harness must fit correctly. Adults can climb. Children can climb. The cost is $3.00 per person per day. The scheduled times for the tower are Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:00-4:30 P.M.
Participants climb to a platform where a trained staff member clips them to a zipline pulley. From the platform, there is an exciting ride along the cable that provides an excellent aerial view of our recreation areas. Our new zipline is a dual zipline, so participants can side-by-side zip with a friend. All adventure activities are conducted with the utmost attention to safety. All necessary equipment such as harnesses, carabineers, lobster claw clips, helmets, and ropes are provided, managed, fitted, and set up by our trained and experienced staff.
* Minimum requirements: 8 years of age and must be able to fit into our harnesses- NO special rigging can be allowed. Individuals weighing more than 250 lbs. and women who are pregnant may not participate in the zipline due to safety concerns.
ROUNDHOUSE BUBBLE BALLS
What are bubble balls?
Bubble balls are large, plastic inflatables that enable a person to get inside and wear the ball like a backpack. They are about 5′ wide and weigh 30 pounds each. Ideally, each participant should be at least 4’8″ tall.
The balls are a lot of fun whether you are participating in a sport or just watching others play.
A Brief History of Bubble Balls at Roundhouse
Stephen Bradd bought a set of bubble balls for business purposes in Spring 2014 and was granted permission by the Board to bring them to Roundhouse that Fall for fun. The balls are now used annually at RH for 2 separate activities:
(1) BUBBLE SOCCER (a traditional game of soccer is played with all participants inside bubble balls) &
(2) BUBBLE SUMO (two players put on bubble balls and then wrestle & bang against each other until one is knocked out of the playing area; a basic tournament is organized to determine a bubble sumo champion)

ROUNDHOUSE DISC GOLF
What is Disc Golf?
Disc golf (a.k.a., frisbee golf) is played similarily to ball golf except a disc (frisbee) is thrown from a tee area toward a basket. The goal is to complete a round (18 holes) with the fewest number of throws possible. A hole is completed once the disc has dropped into the basket. Etiquette and rules are also similar to ball golf. Disc golf is an easy sport to learn but a difficult one to master. A primary advantage of disc golf over ball golf is the cost to begin and play the sport. For about the cost of one or two rounds of ball golf, a disc golf starter set can be purchased (and used indefinitely). There are typically no fees to play disc golf since the courses are generally located in public parks. The minimal cost makes it a great individual or family sport for any budget, and with the growth of the sport in recent years there are an increasing number of places to play.
A Brief History of Disc Golf at Roundhouse
In 2006, Bob Knox conducted some training sessions at Bonclarken introducing many Roundhousers to the sport of disc golf. A training session for disc golf is now a standard part of the Roundhouse schedule. A tournament, open to all interested participants, is also held each year on Thursday afternoon.
