Eagle’s Nest Aerial Adventure

The Eagle’s Nest gives you the chance to move outside your comfort zone, but in a safe and thrilling environment. There are dozens of exciting and often challenging activities designed to help each participant not only have fun but also realize how to overcome challenges that seem daunting.

We all want to spend more time with family and friends. With both children and adult courses available, almost the whole family or group can participate on the high ropes. While working through the course together, families and groups will have a blast watching each other negotiate difficult elements and serve as an encouragement to those who are struggling with fears!

The Eagle’s Nest also provides a great opportunity for developing camaraderie, so plan to bring your crew for a time of fun and challenge as they work together to complete this course.
