Plan Your Visit 

North Shore Adventure Park

Before you arrive


  • Make a reservation online to get the best rate and your preferred time slot. Online reservations need to be made at least 15 minutes prior to your intended start time.  

  • Sign waivers for all climbers in the reservation. Parents or guardians must sign for climbers under age 18. To access the waiver, see your email confirmation. Click the link to sign the waiver. 

  • Closed-toe shoes are mandatory. 

  • Gloves are required to protect your hands on the high ropes courses and ziplines. You may bring your own gloves, purchase them at the time of reservation, on in person when you arrive.  See more details about gloves below.

Before you arrive


Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your reservation time to avoid delays. If your group is 15 people or more, arrive 20 minutes early.  WE CAN NOT GUARANTEE YOUR SPACE IF YOU ARRIVE LATE. Briefings/Ground School starts promptly every 30 minutes and we reserve the right to push your reservation to the next available time slot if you arrive late. If we are at full capacity, you may lose climbing time.

When you arrive



  • Send one person from your party to check-in at the Adventure Store. 

  • Have your email confirmation handy. The host will welcome you and verify your waivers.

  • Minors under 18 must have a parent or guardian on-site. 


Harnessing & Safety Video

  • All climbers must watch a short safety video. 

  • Next, a park monitor will show you how to put on your harness, and how to use the “always locked on” system. 

  • You will get to practice how to use the "always locked on" system on the practice course. 


Climb & Zip

  • Now you are ready to begin your first ropes course! 

  • Tickets last for 2.5 hours, including harnessing and safety video.

  • Do not wear loose clothing or scarves that can get caught in rope and cable. 

  • Tie back hair longer than shoulder length.

  • If you have your phone while climbing, make sure it is secured on your body so it doesn’t fall. We suggest a low-profile clear plastic carrier that is attached to your body.

Gloves are recommended on the high ropes courses and ziplines (age 7 and over). Gloves are essential to protect your hands on the course so they don’t get cut or chapped. You will be gripping heavy rope and cable on the obstacles. 

You may purchase gloves when you make your online reservation. They are also available for purchase at our park retail store.


If you bring your own gloves, we suggest tight-fitting gloves that allow your fingers the dexterity to clip/unclip your carabiners and to tightly grip rope and cable. Typical options may include close-fitting athletic gloves or yard gloves. Gloves with a leather or synthetic palm are best. 


We may provide house gloves for groups on an as-needed basis.  

Small sizes are the most limited in our house gloves supply



Children under 14 may require supervision from the ground or on the course. Please see below.

Minors under 18 must have a parent or guardian on site.
