Adirondack Extreme!

On Saturday, I along with 17 others from SAOAC, went north of Lake George to Adirondack Extreme, a ropes course through the trees. They have 5 courses of obstacles and zip lines, plus a kids course, and a main zip line in front of the building. This is also one of the best priced places, regular price is only $45/adults. I went two years ago and made it through the first course before giving updue to the height and feeling vertigo from all the movement. So this year I made my goal of getting through two courses.

Once you arrive and check in, they start the fitting of the harnesses and a quick training session.

Then you try out the demo course, which includes a short 20 foot zip line, before heading onto the real courses.

 Then it’s onto the first course, where you’re about 15-20 feet above ground.

Once I got through the first course, it was onto the second. The second course takes you higher, approx 30 feet up. This obstacle they call the Tarzan Swing


A little later I finished the second course and opted out of going further. Other people kept going, in all I believe 5 out of our 18 made it all the way through all 5 courses. All together, I think we spent around 4-5 hours there of constant fun.
