Seeing the eclipse from up in the trees in The Adventure Park is a unique way to witness a unique event.
Wheatley Heights, NY - August 21, 2017 - You can tell your grandchildren, “I saw the Solar Eclipse from the treetops back in 2017.” The Adventure Park at Long Island, the popular outdoor zip line and climbing venue located at 75 Colonial Springs Road in Wheatley Heights, NY, is offering a free pair of eclipse glasses (while supplies last) to ticketed guests to view the historic phenomenon while at the Park on August 21.
Seeing the eclipse from up in the trees in The Adventure Park is a unique way to witness a unique event. (Guests may use eclipse glasses while on tree platforms or from the ground but not while actively climbing or zip lining.)
“Zipping the Eclipse” is just one of many special events The Adventure Park has been offering during its 2017 season. For a list of special events see the Park’s website or contact the Park office.
This year the Park continues its popular online climbing reservations at its website which the public has found very convenient. Reservations can always be changed online right up until the previously booked time. Reservations help avoid waiting by establishing a reserved start time for each climber.
Much more than just zip lines The Adventure Park offers a combination experience of zip lines with challenge bridges between the trees along the “aerial trails.” The park's friendly staff is available to answer questions and assist from the moment customers arrive to the moment they conclude their climb and return home with satisfied "I did it!" smiles.
Guests have a choice for their climbing adventure as The Adventure Park is not one single aerial treetop trail but a variety of different, color-coded aerial trails of differing challenge levels--beginner through expert--that climbers choose from depending on their age or climbing experience. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood and rope to form "crossings" of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park's "always locked on" system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session.
