The Adventure Park at Sandy River Retreat
Update: Closed for Winter, Reopens
March 22, 2013
We're excited to announce the opening of a new local attraction, The Adventure Park at Sandy River Retreat on June 15,2012. This tree-top adventure park is the first of it's kind in the State of Virginia.
There are 47 obstacles including 11 zip lines, separated into four different course/trails (the easiest suitable for ages 7-9), similar to those found on a ski mountain. Each trail consists of elements like rope bridges, logs, cargo nets, swings, ladders, and zip lines.
Safety is their highest priority; trained staff provide fitted harnesses and an instruction session before participants start the course. All participants are provided with a new state-of-the-art, safe permanent belay system that attaches to a life-line with two carabiners that cannot be simulteously opened. This allows guests to act individually, try and fail and try again, overcome their fears and build self confidence, all with little to no risk.
The Adventure Park is located next to Sandy River Retreat, Log Cabin Farm Stay. The park is surrounded by walking trails for guests. Refreshments are also available at the registration area.
