About Outdoor Ventures
Outdoor Ventures builds and operates a growing chain of world-class Adventure Parks in the US. Each Adventure Park of Outdoor Ventures consists of a selection of different “aerial trails” up in the trees of a forest, where participants navigate from one tree platform to another crossing challenge bridges of cable wood and rope as well as zip lines. The trails are color-coded according to difficulty, ranging from introductory through advanced, so there is suitable challenge depending on a climber’s experience and abilities. Participants wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips. “A climb” in any one of our Adventure Parks is a positive experience that leaves a lasting memory. Children, teens, adults and groups have fun and experience thrills—but they also build self-confidence, promote good health and encourage group camaraderie, all while connecting with the great outdoors. Climbers leave The Adventure Park exhilarated and can’t wait to tell friends and family about it!
