General Adventure Park Rules

To climb in the park you must:

  • Be at least five (5) years old with sound body and mind capable of performing specific safety tasks independently.
  • Minors must have supervision by parent or guardian while climbing at the Park.
  • Children, ages five and six, are permitted on purple courses only and each must be accompanied on the course by an adult. One adult per child.
  • Read and understand all instructions.
  • Participate in our safety briefing for using all safety and permanently installed equipment in the park.
  • Understand and accept the risks involved.

Registration, Liability Release Forms and Process

  • When coming for the first climb of the 2013 season, each climber should Pre-register, print, complete the Park Release & Agreement. For all under the age of 18, this is particularly important because we must have a parent's or guardian's signature on this year’s release. If a parent/guardian will not be at the park to sign, print it off in advance, have them sign it and bring a copy of their driver's license so we can verify the signature.
