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 and zip lines connect the platforms. The bridge 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 and save!
There are 13 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), 2 single black diamonds (Black Storm and Black Widow) 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 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!

The Park's newest course is the Black Widow, a black diamond "most difficult" course that is challenging and thrilling. The new course has some really unique features like a giant spider web and the Quick Jump exit of the course is an exciting free fall from 40 feet! (well, it's not exactly free fall, but it feels like it!)
