News 6 anchors battle it out on ropes course at Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park
ORLANDO,Fla. – In Central Florida, there’s no shortage of fun family activities– and that’s going well beyond the theme parks.
News 6 anchors found out about a Kissimmee ropes course at the Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park and decided they had to give it a try.
To make it a little more fun– they decided to make it a morning team vs. night team competition.
So morning anchors Bridgett Ellison, Kirstin O’Connor and Justin Warmoth met up with night anchors Lisa Bell and Matt Austin to gear up and throw down in the 15-acre natural pine tree forest.
First, they had to get harnessed up and learn how to use the safety mechanisms they’d be relying on while on the courses.
Then, they got to try out a demo course to get used to how everything works.
Up next, a little smack talk.
“Well, I don’t want the morning team to hear. No, it was not easy, they’re telling me that was the demo, I thought that was the real thing, but I think we can do it,” said Lisa Bell.
