Aerial Adventure Parks & Treetop Obstacle Courses

Aerial Adventure Parks and Treetop Obstacle Courses


Slide, balance, jump, crawl, dash, swing or stroll.  Adventure parks combine the novelty of being high above the ground with physical challenge.  Popular in Europe for many years, Adventure Parks blend static high ropes course elements with zip lines, climbing walls, bridges, and occasionally via ferrata.

A variety of course models exists, ranging from full-guided explorations to semi-guided and self-guided adventures.  From pole-based courses located at your local zoo or beachfront to multi-stage tree-based adventure parks that blend challenge elements with the opportunity to explore the wild, the possibilities are nearly endless.

Treetop Obstacle Course and Adventure Park designs can be tailored to a range of experiences from outings that require only moderate exertion and allow participants to traverse and explore the canopy to physically demanding and emotionally challenging aerial obstacle courses that becon participants to return and improve their performance (akin to climbing gyms).
