The treetop obstacle course allows visitors to explore life in the trees and ultimately forces them to overcome challenges throughout -- from point A to point B.
"We have balance beams, we have wobbly bridges, we have rope swings, we have some zip lines up there, and the events all culminate in a jump off of platforms," said Arbortek's Mike Smith.
Like ski slopes, the 50 platforms range from green to blue to black skill levels, depending on your age -- and willingness -- to take a leap of faith. "If you're looking to get physical and get a workout in, then come for the climbing adventure at the treetop course," Smith said.
Riders wear harnesses and get a crash course -- tapping into their inner-Tarzans.
Then get ready to fly, or climb, or simply fall. Whatever the case, expect to have fun, while pushing your limits.
Reporter Melissa Sheketoff: This is the hardest physical thing I've ever had to do as a reporter.
The price for 2.5 hours of monkey business comes to $55. And for another $10 you can scale the facility's brand new climbing walls -- plenty to do once your feet leave the ground.
"This is a great opportunity for families, for events, for corporations to come out. But I think for individuals and small groups, it's a great date night and it's a great opportunity to come out and challenge yourself," Smith said.
A good time had by all -- overcoming obstacles from above.
