The weather here in North Carolina is slowly starting to cool down and we are finally transitioning into fall! With several events and adventure destinations so close to home, there are endless possibilities for local weekend activities this season!
If you’re looking for a way to get the family active right here in town, look no further than the Greensboro Science Center’s very own aerial adventure park, SKYWILD. With various difficulty levels, there are obstacles for everyone to be challenged.
One distinct characteristic that separates this aerial park from others is that the challenges on this course are modeled after the movements of wild animals. For example, the Butterfly Glider obstacle uses a glider platform shaped like a butterfly.
Participants have to use the rope system to pull the glider in close enough to get on, and then ride the butterfly across the zoo path to the next platform. Our Gator in the Grass obstacle features several zig-zag logs suspended in the air. To complete this challenge you have to cross the wobbly log path, while combing through the green ropes (grasses) that are also suspended above you!
The overall objective of these animal-themed obstacles is to enable participants to experience a variety of animal behaviors while enjoying an exhilarating workout. Many of these obstacles will encourage participants to imitate animal actions, such as waddling, leaping, and crawling to help them gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the diversity of life.
Our fall hours are as follows:
11:30am-3:30pm on weekdays.
9:30am-3:30pm on weekends.
