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

I took my boys ages 9-16 and they all had a blast!! We did the twilight rate from 5-8 to help cut back on costs. It was not crowded and perfect for our first visit. Staff was very friendly. Can't wait to go back!

This place is amazing. I have seen rope courses before but nothing like this. It is very extensive and creative designing. We took a break from our DC vacation and drove to this place on a whim and it ended up being my families favorite thing about DC. I had myself, 5, 8 ,11 year olds and my husband. There... More

I went to the adventure park during their summer concert special event. It was night climbing and zip-lining. The debriefing was a bit of a long wait, but we managed to start out the course around 7:30pm. BTW, you will want to bring your own climbing gloves, the gloves provided by the park were all worn-out, smelly, and some of... More

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
