Reservations can always be changed online right up until the previously booked time. Reservations help avoid waiting by establishing a reserved start time for each climber.
As always, The Adventure Park features its special combination experience of zip lines mixed with challenge bridges between the trees that keeps people coming back for more. The park’s friendly staff is available to answer questions and assist from the moment customers arrive to the moment they conclude their climb and return home with satisfied “I did it!” smiles.
The Adventure Park is not one single aerial treetop trail but a variety of different, color-coded aerial trails of differing challenge levels—beginner through expert—that climbers choose from depending on their age or climbing experience. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood and rope to form “crossings” of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session.
