The Adventure Park, Sandy Spring, Maryland, USA
The Adventure Park at Sandy Spring Friends School is located in Sandy Spring, Maryland, on the 140 acre campus of Sandy Spring Friends School. The park is owned by the school but fully staffed and operated by Outdoor Venture Group.
Opening in 2011 as one of the first Swiss style Adventure Parks in the country, the Adventure Park at Sandy Spring has grown to become the largest man-made outdoor climbing park in the world. The Adventure Forest, The Labyrinth and K2Trees combine to offer almost 300 unique climbing and zipping challenges.
The Adventure Forest, which opened in 2011, is essentially an obstacle course in the trees and includes climbing, zip lines and combinations of the challenge bridges and zip lines. The Sandy Spring park has 13 trails, which are color-coded, with purple — the easiest — being a 12- to 20-foot-high course, and double black diamond — the most difficult — being 65 feet in the air. It is the largest aerial climbing course in the US.
The Labyrinth, which opened in 2013, is an innovative pole based climbing structure offering many of the same challenges as the Adventure Forest, but scaled to be suitable for younger climbers, ages 5-10. Whether climbing with parents during our frequent Family Climbs or as a guest at a private birthday party, The Labyrinth has proven to be a big hit with younger climbers.
K2Trees, which opened in 2016, is the newest and most challenging addition to our Park. K2Trees is a big hit with fitness climbers – “Out of the gym, Off of the walls, Into the Trees!” – as an alternative to their regular workout. Ages 10 and up!
