It’s true; Florida does not have many hills, but the TreeUmph! Adventure Course can still give visitors the feeling of height. providing a challenge with ladders, ropes and zip lines. This daring (but safe!) adventure in the tree tops allows visitors to climb, swing, jump and zip line from one tree stand to the next at up to 60 feet above the ground.
Safety Training is Part of the TreeUmph! Adventure
Of course, there’s an initial training where you can “learn the ropes” on the Harness Course. The low course gets everyone started with ladders, crossing a tightrope and traversing a monkey bridge at a low level. Learn the rules of safety as your guide takes you through these important steps. Once you are confident and understand all safety aspects of the course (and pass the test!) you can plan your own self-guided aerial adventure.
What’s great about TreeUmph! is that it is suitable for all ages over 7 so families, friends and colleagues can all go as a group and have fun together.
