Adventure Course and Ziplines
Adirondack Extreme is the first aerial adventure course established in the United States. Travel through the trees of the Adirondack Forest on the obstacle adventure course and zipline park. There is an adventure for every age and skill level here, including a kids course with 30 games and five zip lines. There are six adventure courses total, but the last two are only available as upgrades since they are quite challenging. The fourth adventure course ends with a tandem zip line, but if you are looking for more ziplining options, book the low rider zip tour. This course is brand new in 2021, designed for beginners, and includes 12 ziplines. Book your adventure with Adirondack Extreme today!
