Adventure Awaits You Here In The Trees at The Adventure Park! | Zipline MA!

Are you ready for the best climbing and zip line that Massachusetts has to offer? The Adventure Park provides family fun for ages 7 and up. 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 and zip line in the park. There are 5 separate trails of varying levels of difficulty. Each trail has zip lines but primarily consist of “bridges” between tree platforms made of rope, cable and wood configurations creating over 65 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.

These tree top adventure courses made the perfect sweet 16 for me! My friends and I are athletic and don't like getting dressed up so I wanted to do something adventurous for my birthday rather then have a big party in a dress.

Zipline MA: What is an Adventure Park?

What to Expect

There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park! Within four beautiful acres of woodland you will find our amazing “aerial forest park.”  Come to the Adventure Park to experience “adventure in the trees” on your own or with friends, family and parties. Ages seven to adult.

Look up—You’ll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. Each bridge presents a different challenge of how to get to the next platform. A series of bridges form “aerial trails” throughout the forest.

Look Around—The Park also is home to a network of educational forest trails.  The trails offer a delightful way to observe the tree-top adventures of others as well as educational signs sharing information about this special forest.  Note that non-climbing observers are welcome to enjoy the Forest Walk at no charge.

Relax—You don’t have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan! Choose from five different color-coded trails, from “beginner” (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).

Climb with Confidence—You will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb. Our double-connected, “always-locked-on” climbing system helps keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. The trails are intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Our Park Guides are available to assist throughout your visit.
