Zip lines – cables that kids, teens and grownups can ride from tree to tree – will be featured at the new Adventure Park at Long Island scheduled to open in Wheatley Heights on June 21.
The aerial forest ropes park will also include a series of “challenge bridges” between tree platforms. The zip lines and bridges are connected in a series of different color-coded "treetop trails" that range from introductory to advanced.
The park will be on five acres within the Henry Kaufman Campgrounds at 75 Colonial Springs Rd. and is geared toward ages 7 and older. It will be open during the summer from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week, then move to fall hours before closing for the winter.
