Aerial Adventure Park

Health and safety are the number one priority now and always. Here are some of the extra COVID measures we're taking this summer to keep us all healthy!

1. You are encouraged to make online reservations and sign waivers online

2. The registration area has been redesigned to keep guests spread out and minimize common touch points. Look for the orange markers to help maintain 6 feet of separation. Go to the Sky High ticket window to check in.

4. You are encouraged to bring your own gloves (with leather palms) or we will have gloves for sale at the shop. 

5. You are required to wear a mask while registering, in the Harness Shop and in the Briefing/Practice areas but once you begin a course, masks are optional unless you are interacting with staff or other climbers at less than 6 feet apart. 

6. While climbing there's a limit of 2 people per platform if you're a family or traveled together. If not, one person per platform.

About Sky High Aerial Adventure Park

Get ready for the most fun you'll have this spring, summer and fall! The Aerial Park is a series of platforms and “bridges” in a 5 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 14 or more days in advance and save.

Online Waiver Form

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!

Climbing Forest
The Climbing Forest is like a 3-D version of a climbing wall and the only one of three in the US. It was designed by Franz Muller of Monkey Hardware, a German company and Bahman Azarm of Outdoor Ventures. Outdoor Ventures is also the designer of Sky High Aerial Park. There are 9 trees outfitted with color coded climbing holds and the difficulty ranges from very easy (yellow) to very challenging (purple). Each climber is fitted with a harness that is clipped into an Auto Belay system. Once a climber reaches the top of the tree at up to 45 feet, they just let go and the belay system slowly lowers them to the ground. The minimum age to enjoy the Climbing Forest is 5 years old and 30 pounds. There is also a kids’ area with two trees where the youngest climbers can climb about 6 feet up and climb back down. The Climbing Forest is open weekends starting May 7, daily starting June 18 and again weekends starting Sept 10 through October 31, weather permitting. https://www.holidayvalley.com/summer/sky-high-adventure-park/climbing-forest-kids-activities-new-york/
