Zip Lining Adventure Park at Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich MA

The Adventure Park at Heritage Museums & Gardens  is a great  zip lining experience on Cape Cod The Adventure Park is an all-natural, interactive outdoor educational experience, set within four acres of forest, and designed to bring the public closer to nature through recreation and learning. The park contains two aspects from which the public can choose to participate. The first is the “Aerial Adventure” – which consists of “aerial trails” between elevated platforms in the trees at different heights with zip lines and challenge bridges to cross. The second aspect is the “Forest Walk” or “interpretive pathways.” These ground level paths wind their way through the forest beneath the climbing activities and bear interpretive signs explaining the area flora and fauna. The climbers in the trees will also benefit from educational signs at their level, explaining scientific principles behind their treetop experience.Zip Lining Adventure Park at Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich MA

 

The Aerial Adventure in-the-trees experience is a two-hour ticketed experience. Each aerial trail takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes to complete. Climbers return to the starting platform after completing each trail to select another trail. Visitors may linger on the ground-level Forest Walk interpretive trails as long as they’d like.
