Last year, North Penn Under Ten met with Hellerick’s Family Farm in Doylestown and got a sneak peak of their Annual Fall Harvest Festival. So this year, we are thrilled to spread the word on something new they’ve added….
An aerial adventure park! In fact, it’s the only one in our region – so this one is worth the trip! Co-Owner of Hellerick’s Farm, Paul Hellerick, comments that “Our Aerial Adventure Park is the only high ropes/challenge/zip line course in Southeastern PA, so people don’t have to drive hours to experience the fun and excitement of this amazing activity. The combination of the quick jump free fall and the other 30 elements/bridges and zip lines truly makes this a one of a kind experience for kids, families, couples, group, schools, and businesses.”
The Aerial Adventure Park consists of 30 elements, bridges, and zip lines on 3 levels suspended from 55 ft. telephone poles, plus a heart-pounding quick jump free fall from the main tower! Guests navigate their way through the 3 levels (10, 20, and 30 ft) while being challenged to figure out how to make it across the elements to the next platform. After navigating the 3 levels, guests have the option of jumping off the top of the main tower and free falling for about 10 ft. before the quick-jump free-fall device engages and slowly lowers them to the ground.
No need for nerves (about the danger….) though. Trained Aerial Adventure Park instructors monitor the park constantly and are ready to assist as needed. Guests are first fitted with a full body harness and helmet. Then, they are attached to a state-of-the-art continuous belay system called the “Saferoller.” With this system, guests can’t be detached from the course because they are attached to the same safety wire from the time they leave the main tower until they return back to the tower via an 85 ft. zip line.
Guests must be 7 years of age or older, between 50-250 lbs, and be able to reach 60 inches to participate. Guests aged 7, 8, or 9 must be accompanied by an adult 16 and over on a 1:1 basis, though older siblings (roughly 12+) may be able to accompany younger siblings. Parents must remain with their children as well. Please reach out to Hellerick’s Farm directly with any questions and confirm before attending.
Birthday parties, schools, group, and corporate packages are available as well as the season passes. We think this is a great, unique excursion to take advantage of!
The park is open daily from 10am-6pm from now until September 4th, 2017. Then it will be open from September 9-10, September 16-October 31st (for the Fall Harvest Festival), and weekends in November and December contingent on weather. Additional details and pricing can be found on their website, their Facebookand Instagram pages, or by calling 215-766-8388.
