Before you adventure. What to know before you go.
Q. What is an aerial adventure park?
A. An aerial treetop Adventure Course is an adventurous obstacle course set in the natural environment where the course is located, in this case the beautiful Adirondacks of Bolton Landing New York. The obstacles are suspended between trees and participants stay securely clipped into a red safety cable throughout the course. The obstacles you will find in our park include zip lines, suspended bridges, scramble nets, swinging logs, surfboards, and much more.
Q. Are you open in the rain?
A. All of our activities operate RAIN or SHINE. Only severe weather conditions such as thunder, lightning, high winds, and heavy downpours will temporarily close the courses. On the rare occasion that Adirondack Extreme must close the courses and guests have been waiting for over 1 hour, guests can receive a RAIN check or REFUND depending on how far the customer was on the course before it closed
Q. Why can’t I book the 5 & 6-course packages before I get to the park?
