1. Aerial Adventure Park

The Aerial Adventure Park will put your balance and bravery to the test. It features more than seven elevated courses in the forest canopy. Begin with the easiest courses, which are marked in yellow. Then, work your way up to the hardest course: the black course.

Catch your breath at the platforms and then catch an adrenaline high as you tackle the 12-15 elements on each course. Youâll encounter zip lines, rope ladders, tightrope walks, bridges, and a few heart-pounding surprises!

2. Zipline Canopy Tour

If youâve always wanted to see things from a birdâs point of view, this is your chance. This experience begins a short ride to the launch point in the forest canopy, detailed instructions, and safety tips. Youâll be wearing a helmet and harness, but the guts and glory will be all yours as you step off the platform and zip down a cable. The ride will be a fast one, but remember to look around and take in the incredible scenery. With 7 ziplines, four bridges, two hikes, and two off-road rides, the Zipline Canopy Tour is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip to the Finger Lakes.

3. Kids Adventure Park

The little ones in your group wonât have to sit this one out. The Kids Adventure Park is designed just for those who are age 4-7. These obstacles are closer to the ground, but your kiddos will still feel accomplished (and have a blast) as they walk tightropes, scale walls, navigate rope ladders, and much more. Be sure to have a camera handy to catch the smiles on their faces. The children wear safety gear and there are plenty of staff around to help them through the obstacles if they need it. 

Hours, Pricing, and More

During the summer months, the park is open daily from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. From mid-September to mid-October, it's only open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. From late October until the first of November, it's only open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until dusk.

Regular admission for adventurers aged 7 and up will get you 3 hours of climbing time. Reservations are required.

The Kids Adventure Park is only for kids aged 4-7 and it's for one hour of climbing time. This is first-come, first-served, so you may need to wait until there is availability, but there is plenty to watch and learn while you do!

Be sure to wear comfortable, well-fitted clothing and closed-toe non-slip shoes. Check their website for additional information regarding safety and FAQs, including age, height and weight restrictions.
