We’re proud to be an ACCT Accredited Vendor for ALL services offered.

  • Design and Engineering Services

    Design and Engineering Services


    The Experiential Systems design team has over 300 combined years of experience designing adventure courses, zip lines and climbing walls. From concept to installation our team considers risk management, environmental factors, population, staffing requirements and program flow with each course, element or structure we install.

    A project manager will sit down with you and discuss everything needed to design or customize a ropes course for your organization’s needs. We start with determining the type of service you will be offering and the primary population you intend on serving: recreational opportunities, amusement based experiences, educational programming, or therapeutic services? 

    These questions then can lead to a better idea of the type of course or structure and belay system best suited for your operational goals. From there we look at the physical site and the space available for installation and operation.  

    Finally your budget and staff capacity to operate is considered. Once all these details are determined, we then submit a proposal for your review. Make sure to take a look at the product line gallery for inspiration and ideas for what you would like to have installed.

    For more information e-mail us at design@experientialsystems.com




    Once your design has been approved we move to the build stage of the project. You will be assigned a project manager who will be your main contact during the construction process. Your project manager will coordinate the site layout, permitting, shop fabrication, delivery and installation of your new product. Prior to or during the installation phase you will be assigned a training coordinator to assess your organizations skill level and programming needs and assign you a Certified Trainer. 

    ESI’s staff are professionals who focus on creating the course, structures and program that are selected and designed especially for your organization and your unique needs.

    We use only the highest quality materials that meet industry standards and relevant Mil. Specs. Care is taken to ensure the products and materials selected are compatible and appropriate for the environment and a long life span.

    • Bolts and Fasteners

    Upon Completion of the inspection a verbal report will be provided before leaving the site and a written report will be mailed within 10 days of the inspection. Both the verbal and written report will use one of three findings to respond to each element of your challenge course.

  • Maintenance & Repair Services

    Maintenance & Repair Services

    Most courses are built in the outdoors exposed to the elements. Storms, UV exposure, and vandalism can all lead to the need for repairs. Experiential Systems can do minor repairs such as hardware and equipment replacement, cable tightening, or element adjustment. ESI can also do major modifications such as replacing belay cables, poles, or repairing climbing wall faces.

    Did you know most repairs on a ropes course can be prevented? We can also work with your staff to develop a quarterly or monthly maintenance plan to prevent future major repairs.

    Many times repairs become evident during your annual inspection. If this is the case speak with your inspector as to the extent of the work needed and potential scheduling options for the repairs. If the damage happens outside of your inspection time contact our office set up a repair date. Make sure to take pictures of the elements that need to be repaired. This can help us to be better prepared with a quote and estimate of time needed for the repair.

  • Staff Training

    Staff Training

    No matter what product or element ESI installs at your facility the goal of the Experiential Systems, Inc. training course is to educate facilitators in the skills and procedures to ensure a supportive experiential learning environment. This will be accomplished by a comprehensive program that includes technically sound operational procedures and group processing guidelines.

    New facilitators need as much information as possible before they head to the woods with their first groups. Having worked with thousands of participants on adventure activities we can fill that gap. Rarely will you find a company with such an extensive background that can offer innovative design, construction and training components all together.

    Training courses are also offered for elements and facilities built by vendors other than ESI. Call one of our offices to discuss the elements you have installed at your site and receive a very competitive price quote on training.

  • Staff Certification

    Staff Certification


    Certifications are crucial to acquire and maintain for all employees who maintain and run any of your activities or challenge course structures. Safety practices and standards are gained through our certification process.

    Experiential Systems offers three levels of challenge course practitioner certification. These levels are based on the current certification levels outlined within the ACCT published Practitioner Certification Standards. Within each level are multiple tracks or training options.

    A practitioner can be certified at each level as a site specific certification or a full certification. A site specific certification is valid only at the course that the practitioner was trained at. A full certification follows a practitioner to other courses where similar systems and program equipment are utilized.

    For detailed information of our certification process email certification@experientialsystems.com
