We take pride in our little area of the forest and demonstrate that through the maintenance of the course area and natural surroundings..Our trees are also inspected annually by an independent arborist to ensure their continued health. Our park is annually inspected by an Approved vendor and meets the standards set forth by the Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT).

Our Staff

Welcome to The Adventure Park!
Our ropes course & zip line park is designed with family fun in mind.
After experiencing other adventure courses in other states and the Caribbean, we decided that this was an awesome attraction to bring to the local area, providing families with a unique outdoor recreational experience while enjoying nature.

The park is built on our 16 acre, self sufficient farm in the town of Rice, just outside Farmville. We are located about 45 minutes from Richmond, Lynchburg, and 1 hour 20 from Charlottesville.
We want our guests to enjoy their time, laugh, scream, cheer, and build confidence on our challenge course obstacles and enjoy the exhilarating ride on the zip lines.

Commonly ropes courses are used for team building activities and challenging personal development while being outdoors. The adventure park combines that concept in a forest setting, taking advantage of the beauty of the trees and surrounding nature. The arrangement of the obstacles encourage many basic forms of movement such as climbing, hand over hand, balancing, holding, slipping, sliding, crawling, and zipping!

The equipment we provide is considered a permanent belay, meaning that your are permanently attached to the life lines by way of lanyards and carabiners. The carabiners are interconnected and cannot simultaneously

be opened, so one will be locked onto the life line, while the other carabiner is unlocked to be able to move forward and clip onto the next obstacle's life line, and lock into that cable before the back carabiner will open.
