TreeTop Adventures Aerial Forest Ropes & Zipling Park in Canton MA

TreeTop Adventures  at the Irish Cultural Centre  is a new forest  aerial & ziplining  park in  Canton.  TreeTop Adventures provides family fun for ages 7 and up.  TreeTop Adventures Aerial Forest Ropes & Zipling Park in Canton MA

TreeTop Adventures is an aerial forest high ropes course consisting of more than 130 platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form bridges and zip lines. Groups of bridges link together to form separate trails. Although every trail has zip lines on them, you will need to climb to get to them. There is much more fun than just zip lining to be had! There are 10 trails in total for ages seven—adult. Each trail has varying difficulty level ranging from beginner to expert. The experience is safe, fun and most  Importantly exciting!

TreeTop Adventures is all about active participation – there are no motorized rides in the park. The trails are designed for everyone to enjoy, and are designated as Yellow, Green, Blue, and Black, similar to ski trails. As one progresses through the difficulty levels, the bridges become less stable under your feet requiring more balance, agility, focus and arm strength. The trails range from easy (yellow) to expert (black) and so every age and fitness level will be find trails that are both challenging and achievable. Ages 7 to teens to adults to seniors find their comfort zone and seek greater challenges.

Climbing at Treetop Adventures is about personal challenge and achievement. There is not a correct way of crossing the bridges. We leave it up to you to figure out the most efficient way of getting from platform to platform.
