Get outside and into our Aerial Adventure Park to experience our five-acre, self-guided tree-to-tree climbing adventure. Ideal for all adults and children 5+ at any fitness level, you'll go at your own pace for a fun, exciting, and self-guided adventure, the perfect combination of challenge and fun. You'll start with a safety briefing and practice session, then we let you choose your own adventure among our 13 treetop trails. Each trail is color-coded, indicating difficulty level. Much like a ski mountain, each climber chooses their own challenge level. The experience is self-guided and focused on exploration and discovery. With roughly 180 tree top platforms connected by bridges, ladders, 23 zip lines and other crossings, our trails are color-coded like ski trails for all abilities and are designed for self-discovery. Our helpful staff are always at hand, available for questions and assistance.

The park itself was nice and clean. There are a variety of course levels to choose from. The staff was nice enough but when they say it is an independent activity they mean it. Don't count on the staff hearing you calling if you need help!!

This Friday, our daughter turned eight, and we decided to take her to Adventure Park with a handful of her friends for her birthday party. One had been there before and raved about it, but we did not know what to expect, honestly. It was amazing! The had different level courses from beginners (like most of us) to very advanced. When two of my daughter's friends were too scared to continue, I suited up and helped guide them. Sure that was an unexpected expense, but I have to tell you, I had a great time myself on the purple and yellow courses! Two things I have to comment on in particular: The first is the staff. Talk about responsive, personable, and just all-around fantastic. They made my daughter's party one to remember, that's for sure. Now for the only concern: Don't leave food in the lower tent areas! We had cupcakes in a glass container with a plastic top, and the park has some VERY adventurous squirrels who ate the top of the container to get at the cupcakes. When I went down to the tables to drop off some presents, there were three of them digging into our things, and they only ran off when I was able a foot away. LOL Even these villainous squirrels won't keep us from coming back though. My daughters are already demanding a return visit!

Thank you so much for your kind words about our staff. We are so glad to hear that the birthday party was a success. We've talked to the squirrels about their behavior and they have promised to do better.

As a low income family, this adventure park is usually the highlight of our year. Not this time. When I arrived at the park with my family The place was packed! In the middle of a COVID-19 outbreak! I thought they did a horrible job maintaining and enforcing social distancing/mask wearing, as half the people didn’t even wear a mask. Staff members did not care. We were uncomfortable staying. I think it is very unfair that people who are not following the clear directions posted all over the park to wear a mask are allowed to climb! I also am upset that I saw tons of New York and New Jersey license plates in the parking lot! This place should be for only in state visitors and only climbers who wear masks! Very unhappy!
