Put yourself to the ultimate test with this self-guided, in-air obstacle course comprised of 10 zip lines ranging from 44 to 700 feet long and 34 challenges created with ladders, wires, logs, discs, netting and other suspended surfaces. Typically takes two to three hours to complete.

TreeTop Adventure will take your love of nature to new heights on a dizzying course of zip lines and other high-flying challenges deftly woven into the natural forest behind the Virginia Hand Callaway Discovery Center. TreeTop Adventure traverses more than 3,000 feet horizontally, soars up to 70 feet above the forest floor and features 10 zip lines ranging from 44 to 700 feet long. The base Discovery Course features five zip lines and 20 more sections comprised of ladders, wires, logs, discs, slot blog netting and other suspended surfaces, each requiring a high-level balancing act that must be carefully executed in order to reach the next challenge or zip line. The Lake Course features five zip lines, including several over water, and four obstacles.

Friends, families, groups — TreeTop Adventure is ideal for team building! — the young and the young-at-heart all will remember this as the experience of a lifetime. If you’re at least 54 inches tall, you can do it! Our trusty guides will secure you in a harness, lead you through a brief instruction session, then send you up on an adrenaline-charged, self-guided adventure with a bird’s-eye view. It’s as easy as 1 ... 2 ... Wheeee!
