TreeTop Adventures Opening at the Irish Cultural Centre on July 2nd Greater Boston's #1 Zip-line and Climbing Attraction

June 27, 2016 Kids, teens, adults, families and groups will soon be happily zipping through the trees in a new attraction located at the Irish Cultural Centre in the town of Canton, when TreeTop Adventures opens on July 2, 2016. TreeTop Adventures will be the first aerial forest ropes park in the Greater Boston area and is sure to appeal to outdoor fun-seekers age seven and older as the new "cool place" this summer.

Located at 200 New Boston Drive in Canton, TreeTop Adventures represents a new concept of self-guided ropes park that includes both zip lines-those cables that one rides across from tree to tree-as well as a series of different "challenge bridges" between tree platforms.

The park's 15 zip lines and over 100 bridges are connected in a series of different "treetop trails." Customers can choose from ten of these different color-coded trails ranging from beginner to expert so there will be suitable challenges for both beginners as well as more experienced climbers.

Customers, known as "climbers," wear safety harnesses, doubly secured to cables throughout their time in the trees. The harnesses employ an "always locked on" climbing system of interlocking carabineers (coupling links). Climbers receive a thorough orientation session before going on the trails, which are designed for self-discovery, making lessons otherwise unnecessary. Park Monitors are always available for questions or assistance.

Partnership with the Irish Cultural Centre
TreeTop Adventures zip-lining and climbing park is built on 3 acres of land on the Irish Cultural Centre Campus. To celebrate Irish heritage, each of the 10 trails at TreeTop Adventures is named after historic Irish or Celtic landmarks such as Giant's Causeway, Ha'Penny Bridge, and the Cliffs of Moher.

Irish Cultural Centre Executive Director John "Mossy" Walker said "this is a fantastic and environmentally sound use of part of our 46-acre campus and we are delighted to be partnering with TreeTop Adventures. They are building a world class aerial ropes challenge course and introducing a fun, safe, and exciting family activity to the Irish Cultural Centre."

Eco-Friendly, Outdoor Fun for Kids, Teens, Adults, Groups
TreeTop Adventures is an eco-friendly attraction that encourages appreciation of nature and enjoyment of healthy play in the outdoors. Tree-friendly construction techniques are used employing cables and wedges to secure the platforms, rather than bolts or nails, helping the trees to remain healthy. Professional arborists maintain the trees and overall forest property along with TreeTop Adventures staff.

The TreeTop Adventures "Climbing and Zip-lining Park" concept originated in Europe about 20 years ago. Hugely popular, there are now around 2,000 such parks throughout Europe. In the United States, it is still a relatively new concept and there are currently only around 100 nationally. The TreeTop Adventures Canton course was built by industry leader Outdoor Ventures, of Fairfield CT.
