After having a ton of fun ripping around in a RZR, we knew we had to try the Treetop Adventure next.
We did the full course, which included 70 different obstacles, some reaching 60 feet above the forest floor. The obstacles were so creative and more challenging than we had assumed they would be. One minute we were swinging on a rope into a fishermen net, digging deep into our inner Tarzan (or, Jane), the next we were flying down a zipline, crossing shifting balance beams and moving logs. It was an afternoon full of excitement, adrenaline and fun.
We went in over-confident and soon found ourselves working muscles we had forgotten we had. The course took longer than we had thought it would and we couldn’t believe we were only half-way through when we reached the half-way point. Three hours after starting, we were flying down the last zipline. Three hours later, we were wondering if we even had the upper body strength and enough power in our hands to grip any more ropes and to finish the last couple elements. At the end, we were left exhausted– it was more hard work than we ever would have thought it would be!
Before your adventure begins, you are taken to a practice course when you learn how to use your safety clips, and how to stay safe. We had a huge group of twenty people trying to go through the safety course and the guides were very quick to notice how long it would take, split our group in two, took the second group to another practice course and got us moving through it. Once we started the actual course, everyone easily became spread out and there wasn’t any waiting between each of the elements.
It had been a rainy day, and while the trees protected us from most of the rain, the elements were all wet, making them slippery and increasing the challenge for us. We loved it- if you’re going to be challenged, go all the way!
Take a look at some of the cool obstacles we encountered!
This activity is great for couples, families, team building and everything in between. There’s also another course for kids aged 7-13 years old. However, if you have a real fear of heights, this many not be the activity for you.
The Adventure Group (TAG) did a great job of offering a safe and enjoyable Treetop Adventure experience. The scenery, excitement and safety were excellent.
