My family and I did the Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course while vacationing in Lake George. It was fantastic! There are 5 levels, and a bonus 6th level if you should choose to do it after the 5th. Each level gets progressively harder. When you arrive, you get suited up in your harness, receive a pep talk from the Manager then head on down to the training area. Your instructor demonstrates the proper techniques which you will use through out the entire course, and explains the importance of safety. They work on a 2 strike system: if you fail to use proper safety first you will receive a warning, the next time they will have you lowered to the ground. I was a little concerned that it would be really busy, and that everyone would be watching you while you complete each task. This isn't really the case. 3-5 people can complete each task at a time, so if you go with a group you will spend the majority of your time with them. The course is extremely challenging, but it is broken up with zip lines which are a little bit more relaxing. The staff are incredible. On the last level:5, a man couldn't continue, and a staff member immediately had him lowered to the ground. There are not instructors watching you at all times, it is a fairly relaxed environment, but with saying that if help was needed they would be there instantly. All together from start to finish it took us about 4 hours, plan for that time. It was worth every penny, and you will be hurting (but in a good way) for days after!

Thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear that you and your family had a great time up in our trees. We definitely have a fun but challenging course, it may not look like it at first but our courses do get higher and harder as you progress through the courses. Finishing all 6 courses is a great accomplishment for anyone : ) We are glad you saw how fast and hard our guides work outside, you may think your not being watched at all times but our guides are all spread out on the ground watching you and if you need any help or if you need to be lowered they are at your service asap!! Thanks again for coming to our park, remember pain is temporary pride is forever : )
