Big family went as a birthday surprise for one of the teens. Some of us are a little afraid of heights so there was some anxiety about this activity. The training is thorough and if you don't want to fall and get injured you had...More

When I got there I didn't know what to expect. The course from afar seemed underwhelming. I was hesitant as it looked like we were going to be with a big group, which reviews indicated might mean that we would have to wait for slow...More

We had an awesome time, somewhat challenging but we are grandparents in our mid fifties and with our ten year old grandson. Be brave and try it, you won't regret it believe me, highly recommend!!

It was a hot humid day, but the trees provide shade so you don't feel over heated. If you are in relatively good shape, this activity should provide a decent workout while having fun with family or friends.

They allow way too many people. It took us 2 hours to complete the first two courses (should have taken 10 minutes altogether) as there was a long line ahead of us. It took all the fun away. At the 3rd course the backup was...More

Hi, Is this park within WMAT's metro service area?

Hi, The course is a 5 minute drive from Shady Grove metro station. We would suggest taking the metro there but you would need a cab and/or uber to get to the course. Thanks!
