Congratulations! You’ve made the bold, adventurous, and thrilling choice to visit Tree to Tree.
I’m sure that you’ve got quite a few questions. Let’s talk.
What did I get myself into? The most exciting way to spend 2-3 hours in South Jersey! You’ll cross wobbly bridges, cargo nets, tarzan swings, and of course, some ziplines!
Will you be in the trees with me the whole time? We’ll have our highly trained guides patrolling from the ground, cheering you on, and helping you out the whole time! But, no, we won’t be in the trees with you. When you arrive at Tree to Tree, you’ll complete a 20-30 minute orientation session, where our guides will teach you all about our safety gear and how to use it, help you properly harness up, and lead you through our demo course. Next, you’ll work your way through the demo course, with our guides watching to make sure that you understand how to do everything properly, and that you’re comfortable. Once you’re all set, they’ll send you over to the aerial obstacle course to get started!
Will my whole group go together? Maybe. It all depends on the height that the members of your group can reach to, and their ages (Check here for more details!)
If you all meet the height and age requirements for the adult’s course, you’ll all be together (assuming your reservation is at the same time!). If your group is a mix of adults and kids, you’ll be going on separate courses. We know it can be frustrating to have different members of your group on different courses, but we do it this way for a few reasons:
(1) The cable on the kid’s courses are lower than the cables on the adult’s courses. Tree to Tree is designed very intentionally so that each participant can control their own adventure. The kid’s cable is lower so that our younger adventurers can move themselves to the next element on the course, get set to zipline, and swing when they’re ready! Because this cable is significantly lower, it’s not suitable for adults – plus, adults will have much more fun on the course specifically designed for them! But don’t worry – even though you can’t climb with your younger adventurers, our guides will be watching them, helping them, and cheering them on the whole time!
(2) The kid’s course and the adult’s courses are very different. Yes, you’ll experience a lot of the same elements, but while both start around 10-15 feet off the ground, the adult’s course climbs to a top height of about 45 feet! The 4 adult’s courses get progressively higher off the ground and more challenging as you go, and our owners (who also own parks in New York and Oregon!) have done a lot of work and research to determine what ages and height reaches are, generally speaking, able to complete the different courses.
What should I do before I get there? I made you a handy checklist to help you out!
Any other questions? Give us a call in the office. We’re so excited that you made the choice to adventure at Tree to Tree, and we can’t wait to see you in the trees!
