This was our 2nd time going! My two boys, Andrew (now 12) and Tyler (now 9) went for the first time last summer. This was all they talked about! We live 1 1/2 hours away. They couldn't wait to go again! This time, we brought 2 of their friends and now they can't wait to go again! After climbing courses... More

I brought my 6-year old (who is the size of your median kindergartner) and my 8 year old here and went on the courses with them. First they harness you up, and then they take you through a quick training spiel followed by a short training course to ensure that you've understood the concept of tweezling and zipping and such....

Squeaks and squeals of excited youngsters greet visitors to the Adventure Park. With the additions of the 40 element Labyrinth and the new Monkey Grove ( basically mountain climbing up majestic trees ) children from age 5 up can join older and stronger climbers in dizzying heights. On week-ends there are night climbs till 10 pm with helmet lights. Relatives... More

it's a challenging work out, but so much fun! my 7-yr old twins in some spots had a hard time w/unlocking the hooks, due to their short stature, but overall, after 3 courses, they were worn out. differing courses by age and skill, really very well laid out and no one will be bored. one complaint, my kids wanted a...

Took my nine year old here who "was" afraid of heights. Could barely get him to leave. Great place for a birthday party.

Way more fun than I expected! Very knowledgeable staff, your safety is their priority. We took 8 nine- and ten- year olds and it was sooooooo fun. Can't wait to go back (maybe with just adults!). Something for every level of climber, and escape routes if you bite off more than you can chew :). They even had strategically placed... More

We went last October to the Adventure Park and couldn't wait to go again. This time we went with our extended family, who we had been pushing to come with us to Adventure Park for the past year! Our kids ranged in age from 7 thu 19 and everyone had a great time. We went on the Sukkos day and... More

My wife has been wanting to checkout Adventure Park for more than year. We finally went this past weekend. It was great fun. We arrived early, basically just after they opened, we were quickly fitted with our safety harness & gloves, went through the required safety training. Then it was off to explore the different climbing routes covering different heights... More

Celebrated my son's 24th birthday by coming to the park and climbing. I had previously done a small amount of climbing on a ropes course in S.C. but this park far exceeded my expectations. The staff was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The courses were well maintained and as challenging as anyone could want. My son even completed a black... More

Amazing place. Friendly staff, so much to do here. A little pricey regularly but with a group it's worth it.
