Climbing Forest

Fun Activities for Kids and Adults in Western New  York

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 6, daily starting June 17 and again weekends starting Sept 9 through October 30, weather permitting.
