We teach You…You Show Us…
Once you have reviewed and meet Adirondack Extreme Adventure Course LLC guidelines and you have completed your waiver form and paid for your access to Adirondack Extreme, you’ll be scheduled into a brief group training session.
During this 30 minute demo training, you’ll be fitted into your harness and your guide will show you how to attach yourself to safety lines and zip lines. This training gives you the knowledge and guidelines to self-manage the equipment designed for your own personal safety as you travel from tree to tree. You must demonstrate the ability to use the equipment properly before you can continue from the demonstration area. Once your guide deems that you can safely use your equipment, you’ll be able to continue onto a course.
Adirondack Extreme’s Guides observe and guide you in the proper use of equipment from the trails below the courses. These guides can also let you know where the course exit points are located at any time, if you want to get your feet back on the ground.
