The Sky Course can take anywhere between 1-3hrs depending on your personal fitness level, how comfortable you are with heights, as well as how many other people are in the trees. Because July and August are very busy, plan to spend more time in the trees.
We recommend wearing comfortable outdoor clothing, closed toe shoes (no sandals or Crocs), and appropriate dress for the weather and for climbing trees. Gloves are recommended but optional. Do not wear jewelry such as long earrings, bracelets, necklaces, rings etc. Please ensure you tie your hair back.
You do not have to be an Olympic Athlete to enjoy SkyTrek Adventure Park! Although it is not called a “Challenge Course” for nothing! It involves mental and physical challenges. With three difficulty levels within the Sky Course (a.k.a. High Ropes Challenge Course), you can choose how far you want to go.
We have seven zip lines altogether incorporated within the Sky Course. The longest one is over 100 feet long (35m)! You have to do the challenges to get to the ziplines.
The course starts low, and then gets higher as you continue. The highest part of the course is 40 feet off the ground!
There are exit points throughout our courses that your Guide will highlight for you. If you are in the middle of the course and do not want to continue, one of our experienced guides will come up and lower you to the ground.

SkyTrek Adventure Park provides participants with a harness, helmet and all necessary safety equipment. Our professionally trained guides will demonstrate and teach you how to use the equipment and how to participate in all activities safely and successfully.

No, if there is a thunder/wind storm right above us our guides will get everyone out of the trees. The storms in this area pass very quickly and once it is clear you can return to the trees. If you choose not to go back up into the trees SkyTrek is unable to provide a refund due to weather circumstances beyond our control.
As the Sky Course can take anywhere between 1-3hrs, we usually take our last group 2-3 hours before closing.

In July and August, we advise you to come in the morning to ensure you’ll have enough time to complete the course.
