Zoo Atlanta Members take a sneak-peek climb on Treetop Trail presented by Kaiser Permanente: All-new aerial playground opens March 21.
Zoo Atlanta Members will be among the first to test their skills on the new Treetop Trail presented by Kaiser Permanente. Member Preview Days are March 17 through March 20, in advance of the aerial playground’s grand opening on March 21, 2017.
The course, made possible with generous support from the Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority, will allow adventurers to traverse a two-level challenge in the Zoo’s KIDZone. Guests will have the opportunity to zig, zag, climb, walk, and balance at their own pace as they navigate a series of rope ladders, bridges, nets and tightrope-style foot lines. Participants will be safely secured and tethered with full-body harness and lanyard to a continuous overhead tracking system.
As they traverse the course, visitors will have new reasons to appreciate the amazing natural skills of tree-dwelling animals such as orangutans, binturongs, milky eagle owls and green tree pythons. Future updates to the experience will include themes that promote education of the lifestyles and adaptations of arboreal wildlife.
The Zoo’s KIDZone is also home to a large playground; Zoo train; endangered species carousel; Canopy Climber and rock-climbing wall; and Splash Fountain presented by Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority. The destinations form the gateway to the Orkin Children’s Zoo, home to Australian wildlife and the sheep, goats and pigs of the Outback Station petting zoo.
Treetop Trail will be open to Zoo visitors of all ages, but children must be 48 inches tall to participate without an adult chaperone. Tickets to the course, which will be available as an add-on to Zoo admission, will be $10.95 for Zoo Atlanta Members; $13.95 for non-Members. Learn more on zooatlanta.org.
