I am 54 and the youngest of our group was 7. We all loved the challenging trails and we all said we were afraid of heights, but the safety equipment helped us to do something we probably would never do otherwise. All of the trails are up high, some higher than others and have a combination of bridges, tight ropes,... More

This place far exceed my expectations. I have seen GoApe courses and this one beats that by leaps and bounds (literally). There are 13 courses rated from easy to most difficult. You actually have to complete one easy then the blue - middle of the pack if you want to move to the Black levels which I am not sure... More

This was an amazing place. Visited with my daughter for a birthday but I will definitely be back. Some of the courses are daunting even if you know you cannot fall.

Yeah, I went there for the 10 year old, I thought. But I wound up having so much fun that I can't wait to go back. Three hours is too much and not enough at the same time. We were able to get through about three courses all challenging but not so challenging as to not be fun for the... More

Our family absolutely loves The Adventure Park and have recently taken visiting cousins (ages 10-13) and grandparents (early 70s) and there truly is an empowering experience there for everyone. From easy introductory courses to insane high in the trees options that keep my skydiving husband happy, the courses are varied and exciting and no one gets left behind. Staff here... More

`We brought 14 girls for a birthday party and end of summer celebration, ages 10-14. Everyone had a great time - it was enchanting after dark, when the place lit up with lights. Extensive ropes course - lots of different levels of challenges for everyone.

This place is the real deal. Don't bother with go ape in rockville. The height and obstacles are frighteningly difficult. Zip line and challenge is awsome.

I took my 14 daughter and 17 year old cousin to Sandy Spring recently. Got there right at 8 which was the best time (lines were much longer when we left 3.5 hours later). Great instruction, super safe and lots of fun. It helps to have the older or more experienced climber go first so they can provide tips to... More
