Sky High Aerial Adventure Park
Get ready for the most fun you'll have all summer! The Aerial Park is a series of platforms and “bridges” in a 4 acre section of the woods near the Tannenbaum Lodge. 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 12 courses with varying levels of difficulty and the more difficult the course, the higher up it is in the trees. There are 3 yellow courses (Sunflower, Sunshine and Snapdragon), 5 greens (Forest Run, Mountain Trail, Grand Rapids I and Grand Rapids II and Fern Gully), 2 blues (Waterfall and Rip Tide), a single black diamond (Black Storm) and a double black...The Commando! All courses except Commando have at least one zip line and some have several. Grand Rapids is a dual zip line course that allows Sky High trekkers to go from the park to the base via 2 sets of 6 side-by-side zip lines. The sixth and final zip travels 350 feet down across the Tannenbaum base area to finish next 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.
New in 2013...2 New Courses and the "Climbing Forest" The Park is growing again with two new courses. Over the winter, the crew built a new yellow (easiest) course called Snap Dragon and a green (next level up) course, Fern Gully. On these easier courses climbers stay relatively close to the ground and the bridges and obstacles are smaller and easier...family friendly! The "Climbing Forest" is a totally new feature that is like a 3-D version of a climbing wall. It consists of 10 trees fitted with climbing handholds and you can choose your route as you climb up the 45 foot heights.
At Sky High 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. Please dress appropriately with closed toe shoes like sneakers or hiking shoesand bring rain gear if the weather looks questionable. For your safety and comfort, please tie long hair back and do not wear dangling jewelry. Reservations are required on weekends and suggested for weekdays at the Aerial Park, call 716-699-HIGH.
