Where are we going today?
Ready for some fun in the great outdoors? We hope so, especially if you are heading to Adventure Park at West Bloomfield!
This forest adventure lets those active members of the family really challenge themselves among the canopy treetops in the aerial forest park.
When you arrive - look up - that's where you're headed! You will see a series of platforms all within the trees, connected by wood, cable and rope bridges, as well as those popular zip lines. Each bridge is it's own challenge, and you have to figure out how to get across to the next platform!
You don't need to be a gymnast or a monkey to be able to conquer the courses. Each of the ten trails are color-coded by difficulty, so you can start from the beginner level (these are easier and lower to the ground), through to the most advanced (of course, the most challenging)
Before you take to the skies, you will receive a full safety orientation so you can start your course knowing you are confident! Everyone will always be "locked on" to the climbing system by a super safe harness, so all you need to worry about is making it to the next platform.
So go on...don't be shy to look down!
These kind of challenges are always great for kids (and adults alike!) because not only are you getting out and enjoying the beauty of nature, but you can work at your own pace, and kids can build confidence as they slowly move up the degrees of difficulty.
They might even surprise themselves with how good they actually are! It's also a great way for the family to work together and enjoy an adventure.
Are you ready to take the challenge at Adventure Park at West Bloomfield? Go on...we know you can do it!

My boyfriend and I came in the other day for the first time and it started storming 30 minutes into our visit. Not only did the manager give us each a free voucher for another time, but she also extended it for both 2015 and 2016 seasons since I'm having hip surgery and won't be able to come in until next season. Exceptional customer service and knowledgeable staff!!! Very satisfied even with leaving early!

Went for the first time today. We absolutely loved it. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately it started to thunderstorm after only 45 mins of climbing and they had to close. They gave us a voucher for a free session next time we go because of the early close time.
