• The park will be built around a central wooden platform about 10 feet above ground that serves as a starting point for the trails. • From this starting platform, 10 or more aerial obstacle courses will originate, meandering through the forest and intersecting with each other at various heights. • The aerial trails will be rated based on the level of difficulty ranging from beginner to expert. • Each will consist of 10 or more challenging "elements n i.e. Indiana Jones bridges} high wires, zip lines, balancing logs, rope ladders, cargo nets and so on. • Each will end at a different location in the park and be connected with a forest trail back to the main platform. • All customers will be in harnesses that are clipped into safety lines at all times. • The park will always be monitored by several trained (rescue, first aid etc.) staff members.
