FFAP contains platforms that range from 12 feet to 50 feet high. Climbers take the action into their own hands by choosing to go on easy, intermediate, or advanced courses. The easiest of the courses begin with Tropical Storm, and then span through Categories 1-5 with Category 5 being the most difficult. The facility is shaped to resemble outer bands of a hurricane, branching out from the central tower which resembles the eye of the Hurricane. There are 6 courses total which consist of 7 obstacles each. The obstacles are designed around a maritime theme using ropes, cables, wood, barrels, stir-ups, a hammock and more. The higher up the central spiral staircase you go, the more difficult the obstacles become. At the end of each course there is a short zip back to the central tower. Have no fear, climbers will be in a harness and attached to a safety device while completing each obstacle, at all times. Typically climbers will complete 3-4 courses (21-28 obstacles) during the 2 hour climb. Guides provide supervision and take care of the climbers to make sure they stay safe.
FFAP is the first Aerial Adventure Park on the Outer Banks, overlooking the Albemarle Sound. In 2015 FFAP won the Outstanding Structure Award at the Association of Challenge Course Technology International conference. Each year FFAP introduces 7 NEW obstacles for participants to challenge.
