  • Children must be accompanied by an adult inside the Adventure Forest "zone."
    • Have a younger child? You can give the green light for your older child to climb, then stay low with your wee one and watch from below.

  • Children may not be carried or worn while climbing.
  • Helmets must be worn at all times.
  • Sturdy, closed-toe shoes are highly recommended.

Important Notes

  • Adventure Forest is first-come, first-served; check in at the kiosk in Joy Park to add your name to the daily waitlist.
  • Adventure Forest is closed the second Tuesday of each month for routine maintenance. Thanks for your patience!

Participation involves strenuous physical activity, including climbing, crawling and tight spaces. If you have an existing medical condition that would be affected, please do not climb.
