First in the USA
Outdoor Ventures (OV) brought the adventure park concept to the United States from Switzerland in 2008. Since then we have focused on perfecting the art to meet American tastes, expectations and standards. OV is the most experienced Adventure Park developer in the United States.
A New Kind of Recreation
Adventure Parks are different from traditional ropes courses. Relatively new and increasingly popular in the United States, they are both exciting and rewarding to experience. Consisting of a selection of different “aerial trails” up in the trees of a forest, participants navigate from one tree platform to another, crossing challenge bridges of cable wood and rope as well as zip lines. The trails are color-coded according to difficulty, ranging from introductory through advanced, so there is suitable challenge depending on a climber’s experience and abilities. Participants wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips.
Climbers leave The Adventure Park exhilarated and can’t wait to tell friends and family about it. Return visits are typical.
From Builder to Developer-Operator
Although OV has designed and built dozens of adventure parks for clients, today Outdoor Ventures (Outdoor Venture Group, LLC) focuses exclusively on building, operating and growing its own chain of first class Adventure Parks.
“A climb” in our Parks is a positive experience that leaves a lasting memory. Children, teens, adults and groups have fun and experience thrills—but they also build self-confidence, promote good health and encourage group camaraderie, all while connecting with the great outdoors.
Simply Good Business
OV Adventure Parks are good for the public, good for the community, good for the environment, and simply…good business.
