So…What are you guys?
It’s a question that we get a lot…and rightfully so. It’s an adventure like we’ve never had before in Cape May. When walking by, it’s easy to see the happy faces of the people in the trees and hear the cheers and laughter, but until you’ve experienced it for yourself it’s hard to explain.
This season we’re going to treat you to some tips & tricks on how to navigate some of our trickier elements. (Stay tuned, and be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram!) Let’s start at the beginning, and we’ll move among the courses throughout the season!
We’re an aerial adventure park. There’s a series of courses (more on this later) up in the trees, starting at about 15 feet in the air and moving up to almost 40 feet in parts! You’ll get harnessed up when you arrive, we’ll teach you how to use the equipment, and then you’ll be up on a self guided tour of the trees. Self guided means that we’ll be there on the ground to help you out and cheer you on, and you can move at your own pace with your group!
You’ll go from obstacle to obstacle (or as we call them – element to element), stopping at platforms built in the trees between the elements to watch your friends, catch your breath, and take in the exhilarating feeling that you’ll surely find. There’s bridges, swings, ropes, beams, tightropes, and many, many more!
Who can go?
We have a few course options to make sure that almost anyone can join us! Anyone ages 7 and up is welcome to the courses. Each course is designed specially for the designated age and height ranges, to provide a fun experience for everyone with appropriate levels of challenges, heights, and fun! Throughout each of the course options, the courses will get higher from the ground and increase in difficulty as you go. Each course ends on the ground, so it’s up to you to decide if you’re ready to conquer the next course, or if you want to call it a day!
Am I safe?
We get it. Knowing that you’re safe while you’re up in the air, exploring something new, and expanding your comfort zone is a priority. That’s why we have CLiC-iTs. You’ll find CLiC-iTs on all of our harnesses, keeping you safe up in the trees. Providing you with an adventure where you feel safe, welcomed, and supported is one of our highest priorities. We’re proud to feature safety equipment above and beyond the industry requirements. When you arrive, we’ll help you to get safely secured in our harnesses.
During your orientation session with one of our highly trained staff, you’ll learn how to use the equipment. Next, you’ll complete our practice course, only a few feet off the ground, under the watchful eye of one of our guides to ensure you’re comfortable with all the equipment! Ask us all your questions, take your time, and when you’re ready you’ll get started on the courses!
Okay, I’m ready! But come on…give the first course tip!
Well, okay. Throughout the courses, you’ll notice that some of the elements include logs swinging from ropes. If you ever see these ropes, grab those ropes instead of the cable to steady yourself! Yep, it seems counter-intuitive: the cable stays in one place while the ropes can swing. Here’s the trick. Do you remember learning about the pendulum swing? The same principle applies here. Hold the cable, and there’s so much farther you can swing. Hold the ropes and it reduces how far you can swing!
