Adventure Parks built by Big Blue Aerial
Tahoe City, CA
Built over the course of a year, starting in 2011, the Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park is one of the courses we operate. There are two course zones using two different safety systems. One zone is geared towards younger kids, ages 5+, and the parents that want to go with them. Within this Flying Squirrel zone are 3 different courses, ranging from beginner to advanced and containing approximately 20 bridges and 5 zip lines.
The second zone, Monkey, contains 5 courses with approximately 55 different bridges and 11 zip lines. We used a different safety system for these courses after analyzing and studying the various pros and cons of all the technology available. Our extensive testing and research has paid off - we've been happy with our choices.
Olympic Valley, CA
We originally had the Ropes Course at Squaw Valley built in 1998 by Alpine Towers as a traditional ropes course. There was a signature Alpine Tower along with two "tree houses" connected by bridges. We added some popular tree-based elements to create a well-rounded Ropes Course, one of the largest in California. Over the span of 14 years the course served us well, however, it needed some updating as the customer base changed and the industry changed.
In 2013 we remodeled the course and added two aerial trekking courses that consist of approximately 6-10 bridges and/or zip lines. This addition injected new life into the ropes course and it has enjoyed a resurgence in business. Customers appreciate the mix of traditional climbing events and the more contemporary aerial trekking bridges and zip lines. The design allows us to still capitalize on the supporting and trusting activity of belaying for groups wanting bonding/team building programs while tapping further into the family market that wants to "pay to play." The design also allows us to differentiate the course from its larger neighbor, Tahoe Treetop.
Noticing the success and popularity of our other courses, the folks at Martis Camp approached us to build a small-size aerial adventure park exclusively for their homeowners and guests. We are very proud of the design and incredibly smooth operation, we think we raised the bar with this course. There are three different aerial courses ranging from beginner to advanced and a fourth course built low-to-ground needing no safety system. This Discovery trail includes 9-10 different ground events inviting participants to discover balance, swinging, sliding, climbing and having fun like kids inherently know how to do. It's already Martis Camp's most popular amenity!
Tahoe Treetop Adventure Park
North Tahoe Regional Park, Tahoe Vista CA
With our latest course we’ve raised the bar even higher. Spread out amongst the 7 courses ranging from beginner to advanced are 70+ tree platforms, all new bridge designs, and 30 zip lines. We wanted to differentiate this course from our others so participants can try multiple locations for a different experience each time. We decided to use a continuous belay system for all courses so that all ages of participants can experience most courses together. Boasting views of Lake Tahoe from many tree platforms, this location immediately became our most popular location
In 2005, the owners of Pa Ngam Mountain resort in Thailand approached us to help build design and build some adventure activities to compliment their already substantial offering. We designed a zip line tour with approx. 6 lines through a forested area containing a beautiful pond.
They were so pleased they had us back the next year to design and build a stand-alone giant swing. It is next to their main lodge and quickly became one of the most popular activities offered.
Although we love to go to Thailand, it made more sense for us to train the local staff to operate these activities.
