At Mountain Ridge Adventure, expect your fears to transform into fun. Only 10 minutes from downtown Schenectady and 30 minutes from Albany and Saratoga, Mountain Ridge Adventure is the Capital Region’s premier treetop challenge course and zip line park. The aerial adventure park offers panoramic views and unique obstacles like Tarzan swings, Indiana Jones-style bridges, cargo nets and zip lines from its spot at the top of a 1000-foot mountain range.
Challenge yourself physically and mentally in the park’s six obstacle courses: Spirit, Courage, Glory, Inspire, Strive and NINJA. Push your boundaries at the park’s Leap of Faith obstacle and bungee jump into a 40 foot free fall. For those looking for a more leisurely experience, stick to the zip line park and take in the unforgettable views as you glide over a 500 foot-long gorge, sometimes at 70 feet high in the air. Kids will especially like the park’s “Dining Room Set” in the sky obstacle and adults are sure to enjoy Strive’s “Rock & Roll” course. Ridge Adventure also hosts themed zip line adventures throughout the year like the Zombie Zip Line, which begins in early October.
Mountain Ridge Adventure uses state-of-the-art safety technology to ensure visitors are locked into a safety cable at all times and have a fun, safe experience. Next to safety, affordability is the park’s priority so that everyone can experience the adventure. For only $54.99 guests can purchase the all-inclusive Treetop Challenge course, which comes with access to the Zip Line Park. Only in the mood to zip line?
