General Adventure Park Rules

To climb in the park you must:

  • Be at least 5 years old with sound body and mind capable of performing specific safety tasks independently.
  • 5-6 year olds must be accompanied by an adult in a 1 adult to 1 child ratio.
  • Read and understand all instructions.
  • Get specific training in using all safety and permanently installed equipment in the park.
  • Understand and accept the risks involved.

New Liability Release Forms and Process

  • When you come for your first climb of 2013, please pre-register, print and bring a signed release. For all under the age of 18, this is particularly important because we must have a parent/guardian signature on this year’s release. If your parent/guardian will not be at the park to sign, print it off in advance, have them sign if and bring a copy of their Drivers license so we can verify the signature.
