An aerial adventure park is an outdoor ropes course where you swing from the trees, zip line through the forest, and have the #BestDayEver.
THE GREAT OUTDOORS
One of the best parts of our aerial adventure park is the opportunity to be outdoors and enjoy the beautiful Massachusetts scenery.
HIGH ROPES COURSE
Make your way through the canopy, challenging your boundaries and conquering fears with treetop obstacles.
MEET THE OBSTACLES
Our aerial adventure parks are part high ropes course and part zipline park. You’ll be challenged with various adrenaline pumping obstacles in the treetops.
In 1941, Kurt Hahn and Lawrence Holt developed the concept of Outward Bound. The mission was to “change lives through challenge and discovery,” accomplished through providing an intensely challenging experience in nature. In 1971, Project Adventure was founded “to bring the tenets of Outward Bound into an educational setting” through the construction of a ropes course built in a school environment. The Project Adventure education concept evolved to eventually include both low and high ropes courses (along with zip lining).
Beginning in the early 1990s, vacationing in Costa Rica became quite popular. One of the many highlights being the canopy tours and zip lining activities. That trend migrated to the U.S., with the first commercial zip line tour in 2002. While zip lines and canopy tours were gaining popularity in the U.S., aerial adventure parks were being built in Europe. The aerial park provides a balance between the Outward Bound/Project Adventure goals of challenge and self-discovery, with the adrenaline and excitement of zip lines. The first aerial adventure park opened in 2007 in Lake George, NY, and the industry has been growing ever since.
