Virgin Radio Takes On The Adventure Park at Upper Clements!
Yesterday The Virgin Radio Crew took off to Annapolis Royal and headed to The Adventure Park at Upper Clements! I have to admit, I was a little nervous. I’m not great with heights and my summer bod well… let’s just say it’s a work in progress. We arrived and the course looked CRAZY! Would I be able to do this without throwing up? Well, not to skip to the end but YES, the Tree Topper Team was AMAZING! They got us all set up in helmets and harnesses and took us out on the practice course until we we’re all ready to go.
The first few courses are obstacle courses that get harder and harder as you go, then to the ZIPLINES! 14 in total and WHAT A FEELING. Not only are the VEIWS amazing but it was a hot day, so the breeze felt fantastic! If you’re thinking about going …DO IT!
Here’s EVERYTHING you need to know before you GO!
What Do I Bring?
- Sturdy, close-toed shoes
- Sunscreen and bug spray
- Proper dress for the day's weather
- Gloves (recommended)
Do I Need To Be Super Fit To Do It?
The Adventure Park is challenging with increasing difficulty levels; you do not need to be an athlete but some physical ability is required.
What If I Can’t Complete The Course?
The guides are AWESOME. They are with you the whole way and ready to help you out whenever you need them. If you’re feeling like you can’t finish they will happily take you back down without question.
Who Can Do The Course?
You must be at least 5'2 (157.6 cm) tall (in footwear) and a maximum weight of 250 lbs (113.4 kg) to use the course.
Is It Safe?
YES. I know there’s something a little unsettling about flying through the air on ropes but, this course is WORLD CLASS. The guides are trained by the U.S. Professional Ropes Challenge Association and are certified to the American Standard for Ropes Challenge Courses and Ziplines.
Is it Fun?
YES. YES… YES! It’s a challenging fun course and you feel like an Avenger after. LIKE SPIDERMAN AND THOR HAD A BABY... That’s you.
Do I Need To Book In Advance?
Reservations have priority over walk-ins and walk-ins will be accommodated at the next available time. So, I would.
What if it rains?
The Adventure Park will only close if there is heavy rain, thunder, lightning or high winds.
What Was My Favorite Part Of The Course?
The ZIPLINES are awesome, easy to use and super safe! It’s so cool to just fly through the trees and like I said… THE VEIWS ARE INSANE! Check out the video below for the full experience!!
