Beautiful resort like venue. My family with kids ages 9-11 had a wonderful time at Adventure Park. It was a safe, family-friendly environment, and a great way to experience the outdoors. Staff was attentive and friendly, and there were plenty of safeguards to put us parents at ease. There were plenty of age appropriate rope and zip line courses and my kids kept asking to stay longer.

My kids, ages 8+, had a blast on both our visits here. The course designs from easy to difficult are all excellent and have clear guidance for kids of different ages (and sizes). Staff are all helpful and responsive as needed. No safety concerns whatsoever.

There is a learning curve for younger kids learning how to transfer clips from one line to the next — not a huge deal but definitely plan to do the first 1-2 courses with younger kids to make sure they get the hang of it. (There are easy courses they can do on their own after.)

The only other thing to look out for if your kids do courses independently is the height of some clips and especially zip lines. If your kids are on the shorter side, do any zip lines with them before they do them solo — otherwise they could get stuck not being able to reach a clip in. Staff look out for this but something to be aware of when you're going through the course — send your kids ahead of you so they're not stuck back on a platform not able to start the zip line on their own.

Beautiful setting, rope courses are of varying degrees of difficulty, staff is helpful, courteous, and very available. A very safe way to build confidence and conquer fear of heights and zip lines. I am grateful to the staff and my young grandson who encouraged his aged 65+ grandmother all along the way.

We loved the adventure and the camping (camping only for youth groups) . Everything and everyone was great. We had a group of boys and adults of various ages and capabilities. Because Adventureland has so many different course at different levels of difficulty everyone was able to have a fantastic time. The safety system they have is foolproof and so easy to use.

One of our adults lost a phone. We looked and tried using tracking but could not find it. We talked to the staff and by the end of the day they found it.

I took my 10-year-old grandson and happily watched and took pictures from below while he explored the different ropes courses. I was very happy with the safety equipment, plentiful staff assuring safety, safety culture, and friendly atmosphere. The place is gorgeous. My grandson went for three hours straight, except for the hydration breaks I insisted he take. HIghly recommend for people who want that physical challenge.

My son (age 18) and my nephew (age 16) had a great fun afternoon here doing what teenage boys love to do—climbing and zip-lining. The park is in a beautiful setting and is well-run with a good emphasis on safety. They do a safety briefing beforehand, and climbers are attached to a safety harness during the whole climb. Reservations should be made online beforehand. Good fun for the whole family! Suitable for ages 5 and older.

This is a wonderful for anyone who loves being outdoors, enjoys being active, and even those nervous about heights. We deeply appreciate the great professionalism and wonderful staff and my daughter and I keep returning to the Adventure Park for afternoons of climbing and challenging ourselves. This was a lifesaver during the height of Covid, and is a family favorite. Looking forward to introducing our soon to be 5 yr old son to this place as well--one of the absolute best places for all active families.

We had a great time here with our group of fourteen 3rd-6th graders. It was a worthy reward for the program they had just completed. All the kids, even the few who were nervous about it, had a great time
The shorter ones, under 4 ft., had some trouble. However, with some help from a capable friend or chaperone, they got along fine.
The staff were overall very accommodating. The day was very hot, and the grounds crew were not keen on lighting a campfire for our planned campfire BBQ. After speaking with the sales team who had assured us there would be one, the sales representative himself went and made one for us. Thanks so much Max! Over all it was an exciting experience which the kids enjoyed tremendously.

We took our almost six year-old here as an end of school year celebration. It was awesome! I was a little worried he would get bored since the website said there are only two courses he is allowed to do at his age, but both of those courses were fun and challenging. Between the two, there were two zip lines and many obstacles. The staff also let us take him on a yellow course since he was comfortable on the purple ones. He got the hang of the clips very quickly and the whole thing felt very safe.

Even the easiest courses were fun for the two adults as well.

I highly recommend Adventure Park for a fun family activity! We had a great time and hope to return soon.

We went on a Monday afternoon during summer vacation. My daughter took 3 friends and they had a blast. There wasn't a huge crowd and they got to do everything they wanted to. They got fully sweaty, dirty and tired. They couldn't stop talking about how much fun each course was on the drive home. Food truck was good too.
