About TreeRunner Adventure Parks  

TreeRunner Raleigh Adventure Park is an “Aerial Adventure Park” serving the Raleigh/Durham area.  It is situated upon three wooded acres and consists of over 69 platforms, 57 challenge elements and 12 zip lines installed in the trees which are connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form bridges, crossings, and zip lines.  Groups of these bridges or "elements" link together to form separate aerial trails through the trees. Although every trail includes zip lines, there is much more fun than just zip lining to be had! There are 9 aerial trails in total with challenge levels suitable for most ages and ability levels (from beginner to expert). Each participant selects the trail(s) they wish to start and climbs at their own pace. The Junior Park, which serves children ages 3-7, is an added attraction to TreeRunner Raleigh Adventure Park this season. 

 

Each participant receives a thorough safety briefing and practice session before climbing. Guests wear industry standard safety harnesses that are double locked to safety cables throughout their time in the trees. Our staff demonstrates how to use the equipment and our "always locked on" climbing system features double interlocking clips. This innovative safety system virtually eliminates the potential of a climber becoming detached from a safety line while on any aerial trail.

 

TreeRunner Adventure Parks currently includes two locations in Michigan and one in North Carolina. A fourth location is currently under construction in Michigan, with many more to follow nationally as the business continues to grow.
