Aerial Zipline Course at the Hudson River


Aerial Zipline and Ropes Course at the Hudson River Adventure Center

Extend your group or individual adventure by challenging ARO's aerial ropes course.  Our Aerial Zipline Course is a guided ropes course experience with a series of aerial obstacles including a zipline. The excitement builds as you harness up and climb to the “launching pad.” Then it’s into the air, soaring like an eagle, for a zippy, tree-top view. You’ll go from zipline rides to climbing, swinging, and jumping through the aerial obstacles. Make this adrenaline-pumping aerial zipline course a must-do adventure for you, your family and friends. Our staff will help you along the way. No experience needed.
