Aerial Adventure Park
Sky High Aerial Park , Mountain Coaster and Climbing Forest are now open daily! We've taken several measures to sanitize, decrease touch points, and allow for proper social distancing at Sky High. Spruce Lake Chairlift rides are open on Saturdays and Sundays.
Health and safety are the number one priority now and always. Here are some of the extra 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.
3. We've created a self harnessing video that explains how to put your harness on and how to adjust it. A staff member will be on hand to assist. Each harness will be cleaned after every use.
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 2 or more days in advance and save. Save even more by purchasing 14 days in advance!
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!
A few stats about the Aerial Park...
13 courses (largest in NYS and 3rd largest in US)
