What should I wear for a Treehouse World Adventure?
Closed-toe shoes are an absolute must for many activities at Treehouse World. Athletic sneakers are recommended. Absolutely no flip flops, sandals, slip on shoes, high heel, or open-toed shoes are permitted on many of the activities. We have a limited number of sneakers to borrow for those who forget theirs.
We suggest wearing clothing that is comfortable to allow freedom of motion. Additionally, please wear clothing that is comfortable and modest for wearing a typical rock climbing harness, if you intend to participate in those activities. Any type of pants or shorts are easier to fit than most dresses or skirts. Lastly, Treehouse World is “in the woods,” so you might not want to wear fine clothing that can’t get a bit dirty. Dress them as if you were going on a hike or to the park to romp around on the playground.
What happens if it rains?
Well, we either duck inside for some impromptu games and activities (Please see our Things To Do List), or we get a little wet. A slight drizzle does not interfere with much at Treehouse World, and trust me, our trees appreciate a drink now and then. Some treehouses have roofs, while others do not.
Should I worry about bugs, ticks and poison ivy?
It is impossible to avoid these things entirely, but our staff actively removes and keeps participants away from poison ivy. We employ guinea hens and chickens to help eat all of the ticks they can find, but we still strongly suggest that participants have someone they trust check them for ticks after adventuring at Treehouse World.
What parts of Treehouse World are open now?
For March 2017, the train treehouses (6), Greybeard Treehouse, Pirate Ship Captain’s Quarters, Leaf platform, and bridges/platforms in the Grove are open and access is included in General Admission. Ticketed Rides that are open include the Rock Climbing Area, the bungee trampoline and Archery tag. The Valley Creek Aerial Adventure Course, the starter zipline, and Walk the Plank are slated to open in Spring, 2017, but we don’t have exact dates yet. For an up to date list of what is ready now and sneak previews of what is to come, please see our treehouses and adventure activities.
