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

I went to adventure park with a total of 3 kids and 4 adults. I paid $147 for my two kids and I. It was a very hot day, make sure to wear sneakers and tight comfortable exercise clothes. Customer service was awesome, run by 20 year olds and below and really cool kids. They knew what they were doing... More

I have a fear of heights, and as long as you are willing to face your fear, this is a good place to start. Each ropes course is rated from beginner to advanced similar to the levels in skiing/snowboarding, so there's a level for everyone. You will start out with a one to one instructor teaching you how to go... More

Let's start with the good. Safety is top notch. The system to connect you to the safety lines is foolproof. In fact, it takes a while to get the hang of it, it's so good. And the layout is nice. But that's all I can say that's good. I was there with a group of a dozen other people. In... More

Went here with a group, and I must say I had an awesome time. Best believe you will be getting a full day workout in this course. We started on the purple course first to get a feel of what the other courses would be like. I dare you to try the double black diamond course.

From both a business and a safety stand point this place is the best. The equipment makes it a no brainer when it comes to safety. You could not get yourself into a bad situation even if you tried. The course is run professionally and there is always someone to give you a hand if you need it. I had... More

We rented the Adventure Park for an evening party of ~60 people (children & adults). Your staff was ready for us. We got everyone checked in, oriented and off in the trees in no time. Better yet, as the members of our party were climbing, I felt comfortable enough to climb myself. The staff was attentive to the needs of... More

It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time at the adventure park. My husband and I are in our 50's and our son is 16. We managed a the black diamond. The staff was great. We're a bit sore but are looking forward to coming back. There is no way to do it all in 3 hours.... More

Fun! Fun! Fun! The orientation gets you up to speed quickly and then you're off to the trees. My advice is get there early on a day when traffic might be light. You do have to wait for the peeps in front of you to move ahead and this can slow your progress significantly. This was my 1st zip-line. I... More

Went with some friends to Sandy Springs Adventure Park yesterday. Great variety of trails from the fun to the physically and mentally demanding. The staff is wonderful--they offered advice on choosing trails and helpful tips for the obstacles along the way. At the end of our 4 hours, we were exhausted and happy. Looking forward to our next visit!
