Life: an adventurous sunday


Sunday was a blast and the highlight was spending four hours at the Adventure Park at Sandy  Spring. This aerial forest adventure is fun, exciting and safe for all participants. We provide a harness and equipment and give you a safety briefing that demonstrates how to climb in the park. There are 10 separate courses of varying levels of difficulty. Each course has zip lines but primarily consist of “bridges” between tree platforms made of rope, cable and wood configurations creating over 150 unique challenges. You will develop skills, endurance, and confidence during your time in the Park. Trained Adventure Park staff members monitor the Park and are there to assist if needed.

What a great place to spend a Sunday? A real forest!

I was totally done! I did 1 beginner, 3 intermediate and 1 advanced. SOOOO MUCH FUN!!!! 😆 What we like the most was that every time you see a new bridge, you have to figure out how to pass through it. There’s more than one way to pass it and you have to find your easiest one! 😉
