Treetop Quest

Coming soon: A new aerial adventure course at Explore Park, opening July 2019. 

Explore Your Wild Side!

Treetop Quest is a family adventure for ages four and up, with progressively challenging aerial obstacles guaranteed to provide a thrill like you've never experienced!  Adventurers soar though the forest on Tarzan swings, traverse cargo nets, balance on tightropes and fly across zip-lines.

Treetop Quest operates seasonally from March through November, accommodating a broad clientele from families and individuals on weekends, to corporate groups and school field trips on weekdays. Zipping and maneuvering from tree to tree provides a unique opportunity to experience nature in new ways, while at the same time connecting with friends and family.

Safety

Treetop Quest uses a state-of-the-art continuous belay system to guarantee the safety of our participants. It’s impossible to detach while traveling throughout the course. This unique clip and harness allows for participants as young as age four to enjoy the course.

Book Your Quest

Reserve your space beginning mid-May with operating dates beginning July 1, 2019. Tentatively, our course will be open daily through August 11 and weekends through November.

Rates

Pricing for the course is currently being finalized, but a typical 2.5 hour experience for an adult will likely run about $35, with lower price tiers available for children. Admission grants the participation access to all course levels for the duration of their visit.

Group Rates & Birthday Parties

Pricing for these packages is currently being finalized, but we expect to offer a 10% discount of regular rates for groups and parties of 10 or more. Birthday packages will be available on Saturdays and Sundays only at 10:30am, 12:00pm and 2:30pm beginning August 1, 2019. Reserve your space beginning May 1, 2019.

About the Treetop Quest Mission

Treetop Quest’s mission is to challenge adventurers to reach new heights, connect with their environment, and explore with a unique community of people.

Our mission stands on three pillars: adventure, environmental education, and community. It is our goal to connect you with each of these pillars right in your own backyard. Whether we achieve a bucket-list item for you or become your favorite weekend pastime, we aspire to get you out of your comfort zone. Treetop Quest challenges you mentally and physically, connects you with the environment, teaches you about the nature in your neighborhood, and provides a rich community of people to enjoy these adventures with. We are honored to uniquely contribute to each community that we serve.
