NY Adventure Park - 2018 Advice

If your family is looking for an exciting, one-of-a-kind vacation experience for 2018 – look no further! Instead of wasting hours in lines at a traditional amusement park, ask yourself and your family if you’re up for an experience like no other by spending an exciting day ziplining at the best adventure park in New York.

Adventure parks offer families, outdoor and recreational enthusiasts and those eager for a different experience the fun of enjoying an ultimate playground in the trees. It’s all about active participation with and in nature.

As recently as a decade ago, there were no adventure parks in the United States. Outdoor challenge courses were typically limited to team-building sites for youth groups and corporations. That all changed in the early 2000s when the first pay to play adventure park opened to the public.

Even better – more of these wonderful parks are on the way right here in beautiful New York state. If you’re new to this exceptional form of recreational fun, the following five exciting elements of our adventure parks will make your trip!

The Great Outdoors

Instead of spending the day on acres of hot concrete, imagine several hours spent touring the treetops while admiring New York’s lush vegetation as far as the eye can see. Think wonderful views while experiencing the thrill of flying over the tops of trees at top speed or while testing yourself during the challenge of completing a rope or obstacle course while in the trees!

Safety First

We use the most advanced safety equipment available. Guests of all ages wear a full-body harness and are secured to a safety line through dual carabineer belay system. This prevents you from becoming disconnected from the safety line until they return safely to ground level. This system allows you to fully and safely enjoy the adventure courses knowing you’re completely secure. Our trained guide will instruct you on every aspect of the safety equipment before you hit the courses.

The Obstacle Courses

Our adventure park offers a total of nine different courses, with four types designed for beginners to experts. If you or your children aren’t yet quite confident in your climbing skills, we have a course for you! And if you’re feeling confident and adventurous or have some experience in rope courses, why not try one of our more challenging courses? All of our courses feature elements which can include rope walks, moving planks, tunnels, zip lines, cargo nets, and more.

Here’s a quick look at our customized courses:

  • Exploration Courses: At 10 feet above ground, these courses are perfect for younger children (ages 7 and up) or anyone new to adventure parks.
  • Motivation Courses: These courses are slightly more challenging and higher off the ground at 15 feet. They include longer zip lines, elements that literally roll you from one tree to the next, and ladders.
  • Strength Courses: At about 22 feet off the ground, these courses offer more challenging obstacles, including rope bridges and harder rolling elements and ladders.
  • Conquer Courses: Considered our expert courses, these are set at up to 40 feet above ground level. These courses require more agility, strength, and balance. If you have no fear of heights and are ready for an adrenaline rush, these are the courses for you.

The Zip Lines

There’s a reason why ziplining is one of the most popular activities on earth! There’s nothing like soaring high above the ground as if you were flying through the trees. Riding a zip line between courses provides you with views of the forest canopy and the area that can’t be imagined from the ground.  The specialized equipment attaching you to the line allows you to soar, but it’s also designed to safely slow you down as you approach each landing zone. And remember – you’ll be strapped into a professional-grade climbing harness with backup systems.

Enjoying the Park

While you’re free to try (and master) as many courses as you like during your unique, three-hour adventure in the trees, our parks also include inviting walking paths and comfortable benches to enjoy. Climbers and friends and family members who prefer not to climb will enjoy taking in the local scenery and the activities above from ground level. There is no charge for parking or admission if you plan to watch as your friends or family members enjoy their time in the trees.

There are several reasons why adventure parks are growing in popularity. They not only provide guests with the beauty of a forest, they offer exciting and challenging outdoor activities surrounded by the natural landscape of cliffs, hills, creeks, and rivers. And getting to experience this in while “at height” in the trees at an adventure park in New York will be a bonus few guests will ever forget.
