Forget go ape

This place is the real deal. Don't bother with go ape in rockville. The height and obstacles are frighteningly difficult. Zip line and challenge is awsome.

Had a wonderful day at Adventure Park- the Grand kids said it was " even better then Hershey Park!" And we loved it because it's a lot closer. There was a 2 hour wait but they took our names & sent a text when we could get in (Gave you 30 mins to get back) Only bad part of the... More

I took my 14 daughter and 17 year old cousin to Sandy Spring recently. Got there right at 8 which was the best time (lines were much longer when we left 3.5 hours later). Great instruction, super safe and lots of fun. It helps to have the older or more experienced climber go first so they can provide tips to... More

This was a great time for my teenagers and there were also many younger kids there. My kids spent almost 2 hours climbing- increasing difficulty levels to the top level of double black diamond. Great activity- I did not climb but I was able to walk around the park for exercise although plenty of parents were participating. It is cool... More

I live about 45 mins away. Arrived on a cloudy day - not crowded. This place is a gem. Took my 7 and 9 year old sons. The staff is all so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable! The majority appears to be college aged and there are a ton of them. They really made it a wonderful day. It's hard to... More

There are not enough words to describe how much fun this course is! The plan and design of these courses is really great. There are many different courses for all ages and skill levels. Every one of them is really fun and long. You get three hours to do a many courses as you can. We did three upper level... More

I had never done a ropes or zip line course before - and I found this to be incredibly fun, challenging, and occasionally scary! It was a fabulous adventure. The team at Sandy Spring was knowledgable and very encouraging. Loved the experience!

The Adventure Park in Sandy Spring is amazing. If you love physical activity and being outside… this is the place for you! I recently went to The Adventure Park with two of my younger cousins: one a Navy SEAL, the other a 10 year old. All three of us had the time of our lives. The staff was extremely attentive,... More

Our girls had tons of uninterrupted fun for 3 hours. Climbing, crossing bridges with obstacles and zip-lining It is more for children than adults. There is a weight limit. I recommend it
