TreeTrails Adventures celebrated its grand opening on July 29 at Phoenix Sport Club, 301 W. Bristol Road in Trevose. The park offers an adrenaline rush for climbers ages 7 to adult, beginners to experts.
“We couldn’t be more excited to open TreeTrails Adventures in Bucks County at the site of the Phoenix Sports Club,” said park spokesperson Gina Bertucci. “TreeTrails Adventures perfectly answers a resurgence of interest in action-packed experiences in the beauty of nature. It’s great to occasionally pause when climbing to take in a bird’s eye view of nature and experience the serenity of an old growth forest from the treetops.”
TreeTrails Adventure Park features three trails that are color-coded by the degree of challenge they provide. These are ideal for ages 7 to adult and include challenges made of cable, rope and wood that span between platforms built around trees.
These challenges include quirky bridges, netted tunnels, gliding rides and zip lines. Trails for beginners take climbers 10 to 12 feet in the air while more difficult trails reach heights up to 50 feet above the forest floor.
In addition to becoming comfortable at height, climbers who move from beginner to intermediate to expert trails also discover increasingly intense challenges that test balance, stamina and strength. The adventure park’s three trails will be augmented with three additional trails by the end of the season.
In addition to the main attraction, KidTrails will soon follow to offer excitement to pint-sized climbers ages 4-7. The two trails include similar challenges to those in the main park. However, KidTrails is built to scale to accommodate the stride and reach of younger climbers. These trails are 2-3 feet off the ground, so adults can walk near children offering physical support and encouragement if necessary.
Two additional attractions are under construction and will open this season — ZipTrails self-guided zip lines and Zip Racer dual racing zip lines.
ZipTrails will be available in combination with use of the main park or as a singular adventure self-guided option. ZipRacer, at 1,000 feet long, includes dual zip lines that allow guests to race a buddy from start to finish. ZipRacer tickets will be sold as single-ride or multi-ride adventures, as well as in combination with other park attractions.
For all TreeTrails adventures, staff helps guests put on harnesses and climbing gear and provides them with a park and equipment briefing. Guests using the main adventure park, ZipTrails and KidTrails are monitored while they practice with gear before taking to the trees for self-guided adventures. Once practice is complete, adventurers in the main park and ZipTrails climb to a main platform — the starting point for courses they can explore for two hours. KidTrails guests can play for an hour in this specially-designed area.
“During the entire experience, park staff interact with guests, celebrating successes, offering encouragement and advice, or providing a helping hand as needed,” said Bertucci. “We pride ourselves on our state-of-the-industry equipment and our friendly staff that is trained to help you every step of the way.
“Everybody we’ve met in Trevose knows about the Phoenix Sport Club. It has been a hub for active families involved with sports for decades. TreeTrails Adventures is a natural fit. With the club’s beverage facilities and picnic grove, we can offer amazing birthday parties and outings for students, church groups, scouting groups, sports teams and clubs. Family gatherings, company picnics and corporate team building can include catered food.”
