Sky Trail® Ropes Course & Zip Line 

Experience an Adrenaline-Fueled Adventure on MOSI’s New Sky Trail® Ropes Course & Zip Line!


After an independent, third party inspection of its Sky Trail® Ropes Course and Zip Line by a certified ACCT (Association of Challenge Course Technology) inspector, the results of the inspection have confirmed that this structure complies with ACCT standards and is safe for operation.

MOSI voluntarily closed the course after the tragic events of Dec.24, 2014 on a Sky Trail course in Orlando’s Artegon Marketplace. According to the manufacturer, Ropes Courses, Inc. (RCI), the accident in Orlando occurred on a component of the Sky Trail equipment called a "Sky Rail." This Sky Rail component is not a part of MOSI's ropes course or zip line.

MOSI’s Sky Trail Ropes Course and Zip Line is open daily.  Monday – Friday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Group rates and exclusive birthday party packages are also available. Please visit www.mosi.org or call (813) 987-6000 for more information and details. Closed toe shoes are required for the course. Height requirements for the ropes course are 48 inches alone or 42 inches accompanied by a responsible adult.  



The Sky Trail Ropes Course and Zip Line are weather dependent. The course will be closed in the event of high winds, rain, lightning and other severe weather conditions. Check out the weather before you come!


About the Ropes Course: Conquer your fears and experience an adrenaline rush like no other on MOSI’s new Sky Trail® Ropes Course, featuring 35 elements on a 12 – 36 ft. high, multilevel structure. The course is designed with challenging high-energy feats ideal for all ages.


About the Zip Line: Daring riders will take off from the top of the Sky Trail® Ropes Course and zip over MOSI’s Kids In Charge! building to a tower more than a football field away. They then turn around and do it all over again for the return trip, launching from 65 feet above the ground and traveling more than 700 feet altogether.


Appropriate forms must be completed in order to participate on the Course.  Please feel free to print the forms below and sign them in advance.  Signed waivers must be presented at the Course for access.


Adult waiver form

Release & Waiver of Liability for minors


 - *must be signed by the parent or guardian of all minors under the age of 18. 



MOSI’s ropes course is different from other courses in the area because unlike other courses, MOSI does not require a minimum number of people to participate to experience the course. Other Tampa Bay area locations only open their courses for large groups, but MOSI can accommodate one guest all the way up to an entire group of people. The Sky Trail® Ropes Course also only requires one clip in, so throughout the structure there is no detaching required.                        


Hours of Operation:

Monday - Friday: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Saturday:  10 a.m. - 6 p.m.

Sunday:  10 a.m. - 6 p.m.


Closed, secured, or athletic footwear is required.  No wheelies, flip-flops or open heel shoes allowed. 


Height Requirements:

Sky Trail Ropes Course - 48 inches alone; 42 inches - 47 inches must be accompanied by a responsible adult 18 years of age and over.  42 inches is the minimum height.

Sky Trail Zip Line - All riders must be 48 inches or taller and weigh at least 60 pounds.


Group rates and exclusive birthday party packages are also available. Please call (813) 987-6000 for more information and details.
