·What trails are kids allowed to climb by age?
Please visit our Park Rules Page to see a chart that shows which trails each age group can climb.
·What are the ticket prices?
More information can be found on our Pricing page. Every climber must purchase a ticket – harnesses may not be shared.
·Is a ticket required to watch my friends/family climb?
Tickets are only required for guests who are climbing. Observers are always welcome in the park at no charge.
·What is the time duration of the ticket?
Tickets in the main Park are valid for three hours – roughly 40 minutes of this will be used for your orientation, and the remaining 2+ hours for climbing. If the orientation process runs over 45 minutes (due to a large group), we will be happy to extend your climb time. You are encouraged to be prepared prior to buying your tickets (i.e. restrooms, snacks and dressed properly) so you can maximize your time in the park. Ticket prices drop to $39 per climber 2.5 hours before park closing as a “Twilight Shorter Climb” promotion. Twilight Shorter Climb tickets are discounted due to the shortened duration of the ticket, ending at park closure. No tickets are sold after 2.5 hours before park closing. Every climber must purchase a ticket – harnesses may not be shared.
·Are reservations required?
No, but reservations are highly encouraged. Same-day and last minute reservations are welcome but are based on availability and there is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your group without advance notice.
- Plan to arrive early. If you arrive late to your reservation, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to serve you or your group at your time of arrival.
- Groups of 10 or more are encouraged to make advance reservations in order to receive group pricing and guaranteed access to climbing harnesses. Advance reservations for groups of this size are required at least two weeks in advance. For more information, please see our Groups Page.
· What clothing should I wear?
Wear well fitting clothing that does not allow anything to hang loose or get tangled in cables and rope. Long hair and jewelry should not be left loose. Sneakers or closed-toed hiking shoes are recommended. Close toed shoes are required — heels, flip-flops, and sandals are unsafe and you will not be permitted to climb with improper shoes.
· What equipment is provided?
A harness, safety clips, and gloves are provided with your admission ticket.
· Is there a height, age, or weight restriction?
There is a height limit of 6’7″ for the ropes courses and zip lines.
There is a weight limit of 265 pounds.
TreeTop Adventures trails are for ages 7 and up, and we have had climbers as old as 93 complete similar courses.
Our trails – yellow, green, blue, and black – have requirements of parent/adult supervision or participation depending on the age bracket and the trail being used. For example, 7 and 9 year olds can use the yellow trails with supervision from the ground, but need to be accompanied by an adult on the green trails (1 adult per 3 children). A chart with participation and supervision requirements is on the ropes courses general Park Rules Page. Whenever adult participation is required the 1:3 adult/child ratio must be met.
Do I have to be really fit to do the trails?
Most people that lead an active lifestyle and are in good health should not have any difficulty in completing the three yellow and four green trails. You are able to proceed at a pace that is comfortable to you. You are also welcome to rest at the picnic tables between trails. Unlike the yellow and green trails, the blue and black trails are very challenging.
·How difficult are the trails?
The trails range from easier (yellow) to expert (black). Relative to each person’s ability, the trails are very manageable but become more physically challenging as you progress to more difficult trails. If you have not been up in the air before you may be unsettled at first about being 10 feet above the ground on a yellow trail or 20 feet above the ground at points on a green trail. Very quickly you will begin to have fun with the challenges and the height above the ground will not be your main focus. Your focus becomes being balanced and efficient on each bridge you are crossing.
· How is this experience self guided and safe?
You will be provided with an ‘Always locked on’ state of the art secure harness system. When you begin a course you will attach your double carabineers to the lifeline that runs the entire length of a trail, and the harness system is mechanically designed so that only one carabineer can be unlocked at a time.
·Can the ropes course operate in the rain?
TreeTop Adventures can still be fun while it is raining. However, the park will close for severe weather such as heavy rain, thunderstorms, and high winds. If small storm systems are moving through the area we try to stay open and ask our guests to take a break while the storms pass. Call before you travel to confirm the operating schedule.
