HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Hattiesburg Zoo held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday for its brand new attraction, the High Ropes Adventure Course.

The High Ropes Adventure Course offers a new and exciting experience like no other in Hattiesburg.

The multi-level ropes course is located on site at the Hattiesburg Zoo and is designed for kids and adults alike to enjoy a fun and challenging experience.

The thrilling attraction is four stories tall, and a special Sky Tykes area, a lower level designed for younger guests, is also available for those less-daring (or who don’t meet the 48” height requirement).

The High Ropes Adventure Course will operate during normal Zoo hours, Tuesday-Sunday from 10am-4pm.

Tickets are $13, and tickets for the Sky Tykes zone (for children up to 48” tall) are $6.

The Hattiesburg Zoo is also offering a special group rate of $10 per ticket for groups of 20 or more.

The Group Rate for Sky Tykes is $5.
