What Our Guests are saying

  • We had a Blast!
    My daughters and I had a blast. The staff is awesome and helpful. The safety system is very genius and makes you feel very secure. If you have even the smallest bit of an adventurous side, give this place a shot.
  • Worth Every Penny
    Ryze is no joke! I am afraid of heights and every staff member made sure you were comfortable and assisted me with finding the best path on each level. My children had an amazing time and cannot wait to go back. Worth every penny.
  • Great Place to Conquer Fears
    Great place to conquer some of your fears! There are various levels of difficulty, so there is a challenge for everyone. Well staffed. Our large group received great instructions on putting the harness on, were then checked by staff, and had plenty of instruction and time to practice clipping ourselves on and off the lines. Would definitely return and have recommended it to others too!
  • Fun Date Idea
    So much fun! Great staff.... a fun date day for my husband and me. I liked that you could do what you wanted at your own pace. You weren't stuck behind a group and you could do different obstacles at your own comfort level
  • Would Go Back!
    Fun for the adventurous! I have a pretty healthy fear of heights but I also like to push my limits and this place does it. It's very safe but hard to convince your brain initially but as you practice on the safer lines you gain confidence to try harder lines. Would go back!
  • Fun Even if You Don't Love Heights!
    I am afraid of heights, but I still had fun climbing with my wife and son. The staff is super friendly and helpful, including helping ease my fear. There are varying levels of difficulty for people with different skill sets and comfort levels. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do. Definitely recommend for adventurous people and their heights-anxious friends and family.

Choose Your Challenge

There are 3 levels of difficulty on our upper levels ranging from easy, intermediate, to difficult. Each obstacle is color coded on the Adventure Tower for clear identification. Work your way up the levels, or leap to another activity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Reservations Required?
Reservations are not required but highly recommended to ensure availability.
When Should I arrive?
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to check-in. Your adventure starts promptly at the time you've reserved, and we cannot guarantee accommodation for late arrivals.
Is it safe?
The safety and security of our guests is a top priority at RYZE Adventure Park. Our Adventure Tower uses  the  smart belay system, a technology designed for each climber to engage carabiners at the entrance of the tower stairs that will not unclip fully until the climber has returned to the bottom level of the stairs.  

While there are inherent risks in outdoor recreational activities and extreme sports, we provide guests with the instructional skills training they need to safely engage in activities. Additionally, we have signage throughout the park to direct your safe adventure and our trained RYZE guides are stationed throughout the park to assist and monitor your experience.

How difficult is the course?
Our Adventure Tower creates a safe interactive atmosphere that features 4 levels and 100+ challenge elements that range from very easy to extremely difficult. Our course uniquely allows you to pick and choose your desired route. You decide how high you go and how hard you want to course to be.
Is there an entrance fee?
No. The Adventure Park is free for those accompanying a paid guest. Guests only pay to use the waiver-based activities at the park, such as the Adventure Tower, Observation Tower Pass, Mini-golf, etc. 
What is the cancellation Policy?
We want you to book with confidence. You can cancel your own reservation anytime before the start of your first activity. We will immediately email you the full value of your purchase in the form of a digital gift card. You may apply it anytime towards a new activity date and time.
For more info visit the cancellation policy
What happens if it rains?
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 later time in the day or for a different day even if we remain open.

We do monitor for lightning, heavy rain, high winds, snow and ice, and will close the course as necessary to keep our guests and staff safe.
For more info visit the weather policy
What is ziplining?
Ziplining is an exciting activity where adventure-goers slide along a steel cable while wearing a full-body harness that is connected to a safety system that has metal "wheels" that roll along the cable between two elevated platforms.

How do you stop while ziplining?
The RYZE zipline utilizes a traditional design that uses gravity to slow you down as you move along the cable and approach the "landing platform."
