BUSHKILL, PA (FALL 2013) – Pocono TreeVentures, the newest aerial adventure ropes course in the Pocono Mountains with 66 elements and five courses opened in mid-July. Gina Bertucci, spokesperson for TreeVentures and Fernwood Resort said, "Our park offers aerial platform to platform challenges from beginner to expert levels and is a great addition to the list of amenities. It allows guests the chance to surround themselves in the pastoral beauty of the wooded Pocono Mountain setting drapped in the beautiful colors of fall, while being challenged with elements that range from easy to extremely difficult." A two night fall ropes course stay and climb package includes weekend accommodations in a studio villa with two ropes course tickets for $181 a night.
TreeVentures contains courses made of platforms constructed at various levels in the trees that are connected by different types of 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 that challenge even the most experienced outdoor ropes enthusiast. In addition to the ropes course, TreeVentures also offers dual racing zip lines 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 Fernwood Resort. Bertucci concludes, "This great package allows you to stay in a Fernwood Resort villa then spend the day in the trees surrounded by the fall colors. Afterwards, you can relax, take a swim or a sauna, have a massage, eat dinner at Wintergreens, golf, horseback ride, canoe on the Delaware, paintball, hike at Bushkill Falls, go to a festival at Shawnee Mountain, and try our new Blue Lightning tubing park – the only all season tubing park in the Pocono Mountains. Fall is a beautiful time to getaway to the Pocono Mountains."
