Family Fun for Everyone!

Whether your family is young or old, the North Shore Adventure Park is a must-do! Tickets give you a 3-hour, unforgettable experience. Bond with your kids, friends, and family as you make your way through the challenging obstacles, and race on the 400-foot dual ziplines.

The six aerial obstacle trails have five levels of difficulty for ages 7 and up. Start out on an easy trail to learn the ropes (pun intended!). Practice using the Always Locked On safety system, and make your way across easier obstacles like the Netted Bridge and the Wobbly Chinese Ladder.

Each trail graduates to being higher off the ground, and having more difficult obstacles. Before you know it, you’ll be conquering the Bouncy Flying Rings, the Swinging Step Bridge, and the Giant Hanging U Ropes!

Each trail has one or more zip lines as part of the course (including the 400-foot dual racing zip lines)!  The ropes courses and ziplines are a combined experience.

It’s a ton of fun, and the challenges build problem-solving skills, confidence, and success stories. Smiles all around, I promise!
