Outdoor Venture Group, LLC (OVG) designs, builds, and operates Aerial Forest Parks, including The Adventure Park. Established in 2008, OVG was inspired by adventure parks in Switzerland and the desire to create an experience that connects people with the great outdoors. We are committed to promoting active enjoyment of the outdoors through the development of aerial forest parks and ropes and zipline courses. Our Parks are places that are good for your health, where you can appreciate nature while engaging in activities that are fun, challenging, and build confidence.
A New Kind of Recreation
There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park. Experience “adventure in the trees” on your own or with friends, family, coworkers, and other special groups.
Adventure Parks are different from traditional ropes courses. Our parks consist of a selection of different “aerial trails” up in the trees of a forest. Climbers navigate from one tree platform to another, crossing challenge bridges of cable wood and rope, as well as zip lines. The trails are color-coded according to difficulty, ranging from introductory through advanced, so there is suitable challenge depending on a climber’s experience and abilities. Participants wear harnesses, which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips.
You’ll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope, and zip lines to form bridges. Each bridge will challenge your skills to get to the next platform. These bridges form “aerial trails” throughout the forest.
You don’t have to be an acrobat or an athlete to join the adventure! Choose from five different color-coded trails, ranging from beginner (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).
Climb with Confidence
You will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb. Our double-connected, “always-locked-on” climbing system helps keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. The trails are intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. However, we do have Park Guides ready to assist climbers when needed.
Climbers leave the Adventure Park exhilarated and can’t wait to tell friends and family about it.
About the Aerial Forest Park Model
The Aerial Forest Park is a new concept in the US, but in Europe (France, Switzerland, England, Austria, and Germany) it has become a very popular experience for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages. At our parks, families, friends, and individuals are involved in healthy outdoor activities, building strength, endurance, and confidence. We provide an opportunity for everyone to enjoy the outdoors and the beauty of nature. Our parks have courses made of small platforms in the trees, constructed at various levels. The platforms are connected by different types of bridges (that represent obstacles) and participants, using safety harnesses, maneuver from platform to platform. The parks operate with virtually no negative environmental impact and the trees (our most important assets) are well cared for and protected. We believe a healthy forest is good for our business and nature.
Ecotourism focuses on responsible travel, personal growth, and environmental sustainability. It places great importance on environmental awareness, respect for nature, and empowerment of local people, corporate responsibility, and creating positive experiences while aiming to provide financial benefits for both businesses and local communities. All of these goals and outcomes make a ropes course park a very eco-friendly and sustainable business.
Good for the public, good for the community, good for the environment.
