Encouraging your family members to spend time outside the computer game....Checked. I must say that it was a lot of fun but this place also challenges me to be in the better shape than I thought...well...required lot of arms/legs strength training before my future visit (for sure). Within 3 hours allowance, I was able to do 3 challenges. Seeing other... More

This was my first time doing any activity of this sort and I can't believe I waited so long. I am rapidly approaching 60 years old (3 months away) and I was so happy to be able to do something that did not tax me too much physically but lovely surroundings and I always felt very safe and secure in...

I took my 10 year old granddaughter to Adventure Park in Sandy Spring, MD, two days in a row because she loved it so much! She - and I - climbed the trees in Monkey Grove one day, and we both climbed the Labyrinth the second day. (I need to say that she had already climbed in the trees of... More

We came here with our 6 and 9 year olds. I wasn't sure if the 6 year old would be able to handle it (spoiler alert: he did and loved it) The (young but well-trained) staff helped us into our gear, including selecting from a vat of climbing gloves. Those of the faint of heart might want to bring their... More

Holy crap! I was soooo wore out from this adventure! The park is compact, but the challenges and obstacles were non-stop. Started at the bottom tier which is required by the staff regardless of ability (a good thing) the obstacles were good along with the zip lines. But, if you are looking for a better challenge and to test your... More

We recently visited some friends in Maryland who took us to The Adventure Park. We had a BLAST! I had zip lined before and done a few things that were similar, but nothing really compares to this place. It's a giant playground. Yes, it can get crowded and backed up; however, this should not deter you. The variety of courses... More

I took my boys ages 9-16 and they all had a blast!! We did the twilight rate from 5-8 to help cut back on costs. It was not crowded and perfect for our first visit. Staff was very friendly. Can't wait to go back!

This place is amazing. I have seen rope courses before but nothing like this. It is very extensive and creative designing. We took a break from our DC vacation and drove to this place on a whim and it ended up being my families favorite thing about DC. I had myself, 5, 8 ,11 year olds and my husband. There... More

I went to the adventure park during their summer concert special event. It was night climbing and zip-lining. The debriefing was a bit of a long wait, but we managed to start out the course around 7:30pm. BTW, you will want to bring your own climbing gloves, the gloves provided by the park were all worn-out, smelly, and some of... More

My kids and I loved this place. Lots of routes for all levels. If you are scared of heights don't bother with this, however, there is plenty of fun. 3 hours of climbing wasn't nearly enough but we were tired afterwards. Plenty of shade since its in the trees but still hot in the summer. I would definitely reserve your... More
