Aerial Park Details
The Aerial Park is a series of platforms and “bridges” in a 5 acre section of the woods near the Tannenbaum Lodge. Platforms are built in the trees and bridges and zip lines connect the platforms. Bridges may be a log, hanging chunks of wood or other obstacles or ladders and the challenge is to get across to the next platform. It is not all strength; it is more strategy and balance. Buy your tickets online 14 or more days in advance and save.
There are 13 courses with varying levels of difficulty. The more difficult the course, the higher 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)
- 2 single black diamonds (Black Storm and Black Widow)
- 1 double black (The Commando)
All courses except Commando have at least one zip line and some have multiple. Grand Rapids is a dual zip line course that allows Sky High trekkers to go from the park to the base via two sets of 6 side-by-side zip lines. The sixth and final zip line travels down across the Tannenbaum base area to finish next to the Tannenbaum Lodge; making it an exciting end to this great adventure!
