This park really impressed me. I filled out the waiver online and was emailed a barcode to later present at the park c/o my smart phone. This saved me the trouble of printing, and had me thinking of ways to improve things at my own workplace. I felt completely safe in the equipment and in the hands of the staff.... More

If Mom or Dad hung out in trees, this Adventure Park may look like a nursery school. But if you thought to get in touch with your deeper heritage and develop your monkey madness, you’re going to love this playground for beginner monkeys. It’s well-run and efficient with your time, super-safety conscious for over-excited kids, and has a pleasantly delightful... More

We had more than 35 scouts and parents climbing in 40 degree weather with rain and felt completely safe. The zip line trolleys are from France, the double-lockout clip system (you can never disconnect both safety clips) are from Germany. The staff helped our boys out of several situations without any hesitation or grief and had specialty equipment to get... More

What I loved about this park was it's various courses. I am an adrenaline rushie, so I was able to hit the expert courses which were higher and more challenging. My other family members who aren't quite so daring were able to stay on the beginner courses. Because I had to conquer both double diamond courses, I came back a... More

This is an amazing ropes course with zip lines, rope obstacles and wood platforms for all levels (super easy for 5 & 6 year olds; easy for 7 to 70 year olds; intermediate; hard and super duper difficult). Everyone wears a harness and the safety locks prevent anyone from falling. We've been many times with both friends and kids. They... More

We planned a trip to The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring as a team building outing for our office. What a perfect choice! We had a few in the group who were afraid of heights, and wouldn't you know they ended up giving it a try and loved it! Seeing the team encourage one another, talk each other through the... More

Our girls had a terrific time! What a wonderful activity for our scout troop, and as we were on the driveway out the girls were asking when we can return. I was so impressed by every staff member that we encountered. They were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Some girls chose an ambitious course and got " stuck" on an element.... More

Took two 11-y.o. girls here and they loved it. Could hardly drag them away. . It's a great confidence guilder for kids are not sure about heights. It's completely safe. It's impossible to move anywhere when off the ground unless you are buckled in to a safety line. There are age limits on how high into the trees you can... More

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...
