Are you looking for something different to do? Do you crave heights and adventure? Pocono TreeVentures is the place to go, in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania.

They have many fun things such as zip lining. The zip lining is a glorious 25- to 30-second ride across the whole entire park. You can race one of your friends by getting strapped next to each other, or you can race a random person if you would like. If you’re afraid of heights, we don’t recommend this.

There are also obstacle courses, high on tree platforms. There are different courses for different ages. There is a baby course for the toddlers and for people who don’t want to go high. There is a yellow course for beginners and a green course for adolescents. The blue course is for more advanced people. The black course is for the best of the best.

TreeVentures is super fun because all you do is climb and do obstacles and zip line. You really enjoy it when you’re with your friends. The heights of the black course are really high. If you’re 11 or younger, you’re not allowed to go on the black, but the other courses are still really fun, and we suggest them all.

Also you are strapped into a harness, so don’t worry about falling. At the beginning when you first get on your harness, they teach you how to use it while you are on the course. So your parents won’t be so worried because you know how to do it. So that’s a plus.

If you need a food break, they have great food such as churros, nachos, pretzels, hot dogs, French fries and so much more. The food is delicious.

You should really go here and experience the greatness. When you go, you never want to leave. Check out the website, poconotreeventures.com.
