The Adventure Park is open rain or shine, so we recommend dressing for the weather! If you don’t want to climb in the rain, you may always reschedule for a different day. Cancellations made less than 24 hours will result in a $15 rescheduling fee per ticket. The courses may close in severe weather (such as thunder, lightning, or high winds). Although we don’t offer refunds, in the event of park closures, your time may be extended, or vouchers will be made available for you to use toward future climbs that season!
Can the ropes course operate in the rain?
Yes, TreEscape can still be fun while it is raining! However, the Park will close for severe weather, such as heavy rain, thunderstorms, and high winds. If high wind gusts are possible, our higher courses may temporarily close.
Regarding Severe Weather
At the Park, we prioritize the safety of customers and staff. When lightning strikes within a certain radius, we will close. Whether we open back up on a given day depends on the forecast. If our county is under a severe thunderstorm warning or watch, we may decide to close in anticipation of a storm rather than wait for it to hit. While it may appear that skies are clear at the Park, if radar indicates any danger coming, we must close. We will make every effort to contact leaders of any remaining reservations if we are forced to close due to weather. If you are unable to reach us and unsure about the forecast, please call our TreEscape phone number, (862) 801. 7028, where we will have updates regarding closures.
