The Aerial Park is a series of platforms and “bridges” built in a 4 acre section of the woods. The platforms are built in the trees and the bridges connect the platforms. The bridge may be a log, hanging chunks of wood or other obstacles or ladders and the challenge is to figure out how to get across to the next platform. It is not all strength; it is more strategy and balance. There are 13 courses with different levels of difficulty and the more difficult the course, the higher up it is in the trees. There are 3 yellow courses (Sunflower and Sunshine), 4 greens (Forest Run, Mountain Trail and Grand Rapids), 2 blues (Waterfall and Rip Tide), 2 black diamonds (Black Storm and Black Bear) and a double black...The Commando! All courses except Commando have at least one zip line and some have several. Everyone wears a harness with a special locking lanyard that safeguards you from falling if you slip or let go. Children must be at least 7 years old, and all guests must be able to perform certain physical tasks to participate. There is a weight limit of 250 pounds. Reservations are suggested for the Aerial Park, call 716-699-HIGH.
The Fun Way Out...Grand Rapids This Green level course is designed to allow Sky High trekkers to go from the park to the base via 6 zip lines. There are 2 courses side by side so you can challenge your friend to see who can get to the bottom first. You’ll start from just below the central platform, climb a small ladder to a bridge that heads toward the Tannenbaum lift line. Along the eastern edge of the park you’ll start your first zip line across the Tannenbaum lift line. The second zip line goes across Crystal, a third shorter zip jogs down the hill, then the fourth zip goes across Independence. Fifth zip line comes back (west) across Independence, then the sixth zip travels 350 feet down across the Tannenbaum base area to finish on the shelf next to the west entrance to the Tannenbaum Lodge. It is an exciting end to this great adventure...to say the least! Check out this video from St. Bonaventure's Rugby Team's visit to Sky High.

The Mountain Coaster is similar to a roller coaster that is built on a mountain. People ride in a “car” attached to rails that pulls you up the hill almost 300 vertical feet, then it follows a 3,000 foot zig zagging spiraling path down the mountain, around 15 curves, over 12 waves and around a huge spiral. Riders are able to control their own speed with brakes on the car. The driver must be at least 54” tall, and be able to demonstrate they understand the staff’s instructions to be a driver. Children must be at least 3 years old and over 38” to accompany a driver who is at least 16 year old. Riders must be able to perform certain physical tasks to participate.
