BUSHKILL, PA (SUMMER 2014) – Pocono TreeVentures, the newest aerial adventure ropes course in the Pocono Mountains with 66 elements and five courses is now open. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for TreeVentures said, “Our new park offers aerial platform to platform challenges from beginner to expert that allows guests the chance to surround themselves in the pastoral beauty of the wooded Pocono Mountain setting.” Ropes course stay and climb packages include two nights of accommodations in a nearby Tree Tops studio villa with two ropes course tickets for $171 a night midweek. Upgrades to a two bedroom villa are also available for an additional $65 a night.
Aerial adventure parks contain courses made of platforms constructed at various levels in the trees connected by bridges that represent obstacles. Participants maneuver from platform to platform wearing a safety harness. Tickets are sold in two hour sessions where guests can repeat the same course or continue to increase the level of difficulty at their own pace. The expert course takes you over 30 feet in the trees and has extremely difficult features to challenge even the most experienced outdoor ropes enthusiast. In addition to the ropes course, the new park also offers Pocono Zip Racer dual racing ziplines that give guests the feeling of flying through the air like a bird.
Pocono TreeVentures is located on Route 209 in Bushkill, PA on the property of Tree Tops and Fairway Villas. Bertucci concludes, "This package allows you to stay in a villa located within walking distance to the ropes course. After a few hours in the trees, you can relax in the pool, have a massage, eat dinner at Wintergreens Patio Grill with lakeside dining, golf, horseback ride, canoe the Delaware, paintball, hike at Bushkill Falls, and try our new Blue Lightning tubing park – the only all season tubing park in the Pocono Mountains. Now is the time for that much needed summer getaway.” For Pocono TreeVentures package reservations go to PoconoTreeVentures.com where you can get additional aerial ropes course information and reserve your overnight stay.
