What if someone told you, “Hey, want to strap on a harness, clip yourself to a wire, and try to beat an obstacle course in the trees 50 feet in the air?” Would you do it?
Yeah, that’s precisely what we did last weekend. We decided that it would be fun to get some friends and head on out to the Sky High Adventure Park in Holiday Valley.
For those of you who have never been, here are a few words of advice: Wear long pants because you might slam your shins into a wooden platform. Wear long sleeves because you might almost fall to your death (not really, but it felt like it) and have to cling to a metal wire. Wear closed toed shoes because you might jam your foot into a tree. Basically wear bubble wrap if you can, because you probably will get into a fight with one of the obstacles, and it may win.
The park offers five different levels: yellow, green, blue, black, and double black. I stuck to the yellow and green ones since they were the easiest, but there were people attempting the hardest ones! I have a new-found respect for those who do the American Ninja Warrior stuff…this is NOT easy!
It may not be easy, but it so much fun! Aside from my incredibly bruised arms, we didn’t run into any issues up in the trees and I felt very safe with the harness. The best part of the entire thing was the zip lines! If you do visit this park, make sure you do the gigantic zip line at the end that brings you back down the hill. It was SO much fun!
