I remember this park being amazing and diverse when I was growing up. Great swings to ride on and pool volleyball being played. People were courteous and very polite when I stayed. Lifeguards were willing to speak up and prevent disasters. Cool park and I will keep coming.

The structures are cool and most of the kids had fun. Some did get scared and would freeze in the middle of obstacles, needing rescue by staff or by other adults on the structure. On the Crucible, there has to be a certain number of adults per children. When kids would get stuck, the staff was good about helping but... More

The climbing is neat, but the workers need much more training. I witnessed a scared, crying child, saying, "I want to go home. Take me home, get me off of here." Two workers responded by hugging one another and screaming, "oooh, I'm SO SCARED. Get me out of here." Totally inappropriate, and cruel besides. When I phoned to speak with... More

Courses have 6 levels of difficulty to pose a challenge for any group. Easiest are for children, and the hardest for adults with good upper body strength. Several long courses give the park a large capacity to hold up to several hundred people. Obstacles in courses are very diverse as well, with few repeats besides zip lines. The unique full-body...

I visited The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring late yesterday evening with my daughter, her friend and her two children. The park was busy and there was a long wait to get training due to limited staffing. The first course we travelled was great fun and encouraged us to move to a higher lever so we headed for the Mountain... More

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
