What to know before you visit
Try out the swinging planks, the slide, the loop-to-loops, and over a dozen more elements without ever touching the ground! The Raptor’s Nest gives Creation Museum guests the chance to move outside their comfort zones, but in a safe and thrilling environment. There are up to 35 exciting and often challenging activities designed to help each participant not only have fun but also realize how to overcome challenges that seem daunting.
With both children and adult courses available, almost the whole family or group can participate on the high ropes. The Raptor’s Nest provides a great opportunity for developing camaraderie, so plan to bring your family or group for a time of fun as you work together to complete challenging this course.
The Raptor’s Nest Aerial Adventure Park includes a course for kids ages 4–9. Participants will ride two small zip lines and move through a series of obstacles that range from three to seven feet off the ground. The children’s course price is $24.95.
One parent must accompany their child on this course if the child is unable to reach 70 inches standing flat-footed. The accompanying parent pays a discounted fee of $10, but is limited to the Children’s Course. In the absence of a parent to assist, you may request a private guide for $25 per session. We require 72 hours advance notice to arrange for a private guide.
With the closed safety hook system, there is no worry that a child can become disengaged from the cable system. There are trained facilitators on the course to assist and guide guests.
The adult high-ropes course presents challenging activities at heights of 10–45 feet in the air and includes two adult-size zip lines. Allow up to 2.5 hours for the adult course. Suited for ages 10 and up, all participants must be able to reach 70 inches while standing flat-footed.
We also use the safety hook system on the adult course to assure maximum safety. Trained facilitators will be onsite at all times to ensure participants are assisted as needed.
Adventure Park tour times are very limited. Please call Reservations at (800) 721-2298 before your visit to check availability and to schedule a tour. Before you schedule, make sure you fit the requirements to participate.
