My first visit but definitely not my last. The staff were very helpful and I felt very safe up on the platforms as well as the elements. Ingenious system used to keep you safe at all times. Will definitely suggest this to my friends and co-workers.

My husband and I went for our nephew’s birthday party and enjoyed it as much as he did! The experience allowed us to get out of our comfort zone both mentally and physically, yet in a totally safe way. The harness system takes a bit of practice, but ensures you are safe by forcing you to clip in and out in a way that guarantees you are clipped in with at least one of the two clips at any point. We think this safety system should be better highlighted because it’s truly engineering genius, German...of course. The courses themselves are at various levels so you can work your way up, the harder they get the more strength, bravery, and technique you will need. We encountered a women who was over 60 and had gone 172 times (season pass holder) who is now doing the most challenging course which I couldn’t dream of barely surviving the advanced courses. We are definitely going back, a great change to our typical workout routine and so much fun

My 8 year old son and I went for the second time last weekend, and he was on Cloud 9! We had a great time - brought a picnic and stayed for hours. This is so much fun, as well as great exercise and time outside! Plus, the Park owners did a truly remarkable job of adapting to operations in the time of Coronavirus, adding new policies, guidelines, and a handy safety video, and even handing out mini hand sanitizer bottles upon our arrival. We felt safe the entire time. The employees are also very helpful and kind, and gave great advice on which courses would be just right for my adventurous but young son.

After prepping for 3 months to reopen during these times, we're so glad to hear that the work paid off. I'm glad that you and your son had such a great time! Thank you for the review!

Oh my gosh, I underestimated how fun this was going to be. We were on a field trip and I ran through the trails grabbing photos and videos, and the kids did fantastic. It's such a great experience for team building and building confidence. I saw some real tear-jerking moments where kids were helping each other and cheering each other on. It was a great day!

We loved the adventure Park, and can't wait to return. Everything went very well, and we had loads of fun, including our 7 year old who I wasn't sure would enjoy the experience. Highly recommended.

A couple of things could have been better for us... I wish they had some sort of height requirements mentioned on the courses. Our son went on the green course, and we realized halfway that the harness would have to be put too high for him to be able to complete the activity. So we had to go back to the next exit and kind of leave things midway!

We called the staff a couple of times for help, they were very helpful, and handled the situations very well, completely satisfied with that. But the part where you need to call them was hard, you just need to yell 'staff' and it took my whole family, and people on the neighboring trees to be able to get their attention!

This was me and my guest first time zip-lining!
I was visiting from NY and I made a human error of booking for the wrong location. After explaining to staff not only did they understand completely. But they made the rest of my journey seamless and left me with no worries as they were able to accommodate me and my guest quickly and efficiently. Really took a weight off of my shoulders and we had a fabulous time throughout our experience! The most exciting thing about The Adventure Park at Sandy Springs, was that it’s more of a mental challenge than physical. To coach yourself and others through the obstacles is definitely a different battle of believing in yourself some may never thought they’ll come to.
Thank you for the experience.

I took my son and a friend (9yo) to the Park and they had a great time. They were able to navigate different levels of courses independently, so I was able to follow along on the ground w/o climbing myself. The instructors also allowed them to graduate to the next difficulty levels when they'd demonstrated their ability on easier courses.

The food truck also made feeding the kids easy during a break.

We'll definitely be back.

This place is awesome! We go about once a year and it is always a thrill! Climbs are fun, staff is friendly and helpful. Took a little longer this time to go through the training session, but totally understandable with all of the covid precautions implemented. And I love that they offer a cheap glove purchase option ($2) so you don’t have to spend over $10 on leather gloves! They have the best cancellation policy, so there’s never any risk in making reservations! Love this place!

Adventure Park is a tremendously fun and exhilarating activity. All staff members are patient, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and just cool and good people.

It was an awesome experience to be up in the trees, fully secured in our harnesses that made us feel and kept us safe. The engineering and detail in every element on every course is top notch. I was very impressed with how meticulously constructed every element is.

We will definitely be back here again. What a fun activity for the entire family--regardless of age.

Levels for everyone. Fun ziplines, fun climbing. I kept thinking ‘who designs these courses?’ because every one is different! Even athletic kids (13-18) were challenged and got a good workout. So many courses to choose from. Great place for family fun!
