4th of July

Red, White, & Blue — Zip on through!

It’s officially summertime now, and we just can’t get enough sunshine.  We’re spending each and every day up in the trees.  Can you blame us?!

We’re also looking forward to the 4th of July.  Did you know that around 150 million hot dogs and 700 million pounds of chicken are consumed on this day?!?  (details here)  It’s a great opportunity for us to celebrate our Independence while indulging in s’mores, and perfectly BBQ’ed hot dogs and chicken while anticipating the fireworks that symbolize the independence of the 13 original colonies. Bonus points if you can name all 13!

You’ll never guess where our 4th of July traditions come from.  Before all the hot dogs and fireworks, the 4th celebrations consisted of parades, bonfires, and firing cannons or muskets as a mock funeral for King George.  The celebrations also consisted of readings of the Declaration of Independence.  Good ol’ George Washington even doubled rations of rum to soldiers for the day in celebration! (Read more on this here)

While some of you might be keeping tradition alive by doubling your own rations,  we’ve got a great alternative plan for you.   Celebrate your independence by feeling free and alive like never before on our zip lines, bridges, and leaps of faith.  On July 3&4, visit Tree to Tree and get $13 OFF Aerial Obstacle Course or Zip Tour Admissions!

First Time Zipper? Start Here!

Congratulations! You’ve made the bold, adventurous, and thrilling choice to visit Tree to Tree.

Awesome decision!

I’m sure that you’ve got quite a few questions. Let’s talk.

What did I get myself into? The most exciting way to spend 2-3 hours in South Jersey!  You’ll cross wobbly bridges, cargo nets, tarzan swings, and of course, some ziplines!

Will you be in the trees with me the whole time? We’ll have our highly trained guides patrolling from the ground, cheering you on, and helping you out the whole time!  But, no, we won’t be in the trees with you.  When you arrive at Tree to Tree, you’ll complete a 20-30 minute orientation session, where our guides will teach you all about our safety gear and how to use it, help you properly harness up, and lead you through our demo course.  Next, you’ll work your way through the demo course, with our guides watching to make sure that you understand how to do everything properly, and that you’re comfortable. Once you’re all set, they’ll send you over to the aerial obstacle course to get started!

Will my whole group go together? Maybe. It all depends on the height that the members of your group can reach to, and their ages (Check here for more details!)

If you all meet the height and age requirements for the adult’s course, you’ll all be together (assuming your reservation is at the same time!).  If your group is a mix of adults and kids, you’ll be going on separate courses. We know it can be frustrating to have different members of your group on different courses, but we do it this way for a few reasons:

(1) The cable on the kid’s courses are lower than the cables on the adult’s courses.  Tree to Tree is designed very intentionally so that each participant can control their own adventure.  The kid’s cable is lower so that our younger adventurers can move themselves to the next element on the course, get set to zipline, and swing when they’re ready! Because this cable is significantly lower, it’s not suitable for adults – plus, adults will have much more fun on the course specifically designed for them! But don’t worry – even though you can’t climb with your younger adventurers, our guides will be watching them, helping them, and cheering them on the whole time!

(2) The kid’s course and the adult’s courses are very different.  Yes, you’ll experience a lot of the same elements, but while both start around 10-15 feet off the ground, the adult’s course climbs to a top height of about 45 feet! The 4 adult’s courses get progressively higher off the ground and more challenging as you go, and our owners (who also own parks in New York and Oregon!) have done a lot of work and research to determine what ages and height reaches are, generally speaking, able to complete the different courses.

What should I do before I get there? I made you a handy checklist to help you out!

 

 

Any other questions?  Give us a call in the office.  We’re so excited that you made the choice to adventure at Tree to Tree, and we can’t wait to see you in the trees!

 

 

 

Adventure Village

Have you seen the Pixar Movie “Up”?  In it, a young wilderness explorer named Russel and a 78 year old lovable curmudgeon  named Carl form quite the unlikely duo as they travel to Paradise Falls, with Carl’s house in tow.  There’s countless helium balloons holding the house afloat as take an ultimate adventure to its final destination.

It’s one of my favorite animated movies.  Why, you ask? Because as you watch, you’ll see Carl’s transformation.  At the beginning, he has no sense of adventure left.  His world is grey, and he’s clearly at a loss of what to do next in his life.  Russell enters his life, and helps Carl rediscover adventure, exploring, and all the excitement that life has to offer.

Introducing Tree to Tree’s Adventure Village.  Let’s make adventure a lifestyle!

Adventure Village is the perfect place to introduce our very tiniest visitors, ages 2-8, to adventure!  It was designed and built especially for them to explore, play, and discover their sense of adventure.

No gear is required in Adventure Village.  The entire area is safely enclosed to allow for a safe way to play in the trees.  Your young explorers can test out their balance on wobbly bridges, play on the lookout platforms, or give zip lining a shot on our hand-held zip line!

Over the winter, we gave Adventure Village a little extra TLC.  Our team put cedar roofs on all of the mini tree house huts to add another layer to the adventure.

Make a reservation for your smallest explorers to visit Adventure Village!
