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...

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
