Aerial Adventure Park offers tree top challenges through 6 different levels incorporating challenges such as suspended bridges, swinging logs, ziplines and more. This season, new challenges have been added to the Park including a new blue course for a total of 6 courses and new elements (including longer ziplines) have been added throughout the Park so it will be a fresh challenge even for past guests!
