Dallasites used to have to travel to zip through the trees on a zipline, that is, until now. Since December 2013, DFW visitors and locals alike now have the option of exploring and challenging themselves on an obstacle course in the sky over the Trinity Forest at the Trinity Forest Aerial Adventure.
Composed of six leveled courses, varying in difficulty level with 1 yellow easy course, 2 green courses, 2 blue courses and one black advanced course. Participants must complete one level to advance to the next because courses are self-guided and self-paced. The courses are stocked with challenges including suspension ladders, ramps and even a free fall drop. There are 12 elements in each level.
The feeling of accomplishment in completing a physical task such as these is just the icing on the cake. The rush of adrenaline on faster zips, the strength necessary to climb, and the courage it takes to complete the high wire obstacles makes even the most apprehensive participants feel like warriors. It's as if we returned to our exciting life of swinging freely through trees. Although there are a few ziplines in Texas, this is the only facility that has a fully leveled zipline obstacle course.
Online pricing is $39.95-Adults; $34.95-Youth ages 10-15 years old; $29.95-Children ages 6-9 years old, military discount price is $29.95. This price allows zipliners to stick around and try courses as many times as they can handle. Hours are Saturdays from 9 to 5 with the last reservations at 3:30 to allow for completion of the course, and Sundays from 10 to 5 with the last reservations made at 3:30. Reservations do sell out so make sure to claim your time in advance. See you in the trees!
