Aerial Forest Adventure Park

Unleash your inner Tarzan (or Jane!) in the Aerial Forest Adventure Park, the newest in New Hampshire's White Mountains!  Test your balance and agility by working your way from platform to platform high in the forest, crossing bridges, climbing ladders, and zooming across ziplines. The park consists of five courses of varying levels of difficulty for every member of the family.

A Swiss design, the Aerial Forest is built to the standards of the Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT), consists of platforms and elements that range from 9 to over 40 feet off the ground. Once you're outfitted with a harness and gloves, a safety orientation will teach you about the park's Smart Safety Belay (SSB) system, a permanently-activated securing system where you're always hooked up to safety anchors, even when switching courses. 
Here are just some of the elements you'll find in the park:

  • Ziplines
  • Trapeze bridge
  • Oscillating walk
  • Tibetan bridge
  • Chain loops
  • Log tightrope walk
  • Log suspension bridge
  • Himalayan bridge
  • Various ladders
  • Hanging wooden blocks
  • And more!
