Play in Mountains!
Have Fun at the Field 1,500 Meters above Sea Level.
We set treetop adventure courses that were designed to make the best use of trees in the forest and the natural feature. There are two tree adventure courses (A and B) which have 19 elements. The highest point of the courses is nine meters from the ground and their total length is 400 meters. Let’s challenge thrilling elements like zip line, log bridge, aerial bar, and so on while moving between trees! You can challenge each course only once.
