Explore life among the treetops, experience adrenaline rushes and go through obstacle courses while suspended in the air. Treetop Quest in Gwinnett invited us out recently for an afternoon of fun and we are thankful we have the opportunity to tell you about this amazing place. Not too far from Alpharetta (only took us about a half hour), Treetop Quest offers a thrilling new adventure in the heart of Mother Nature. Feel the adrenaline rush as you climb, jump, zip and swing from tree to tree at heights up to 55 feet off the ground! Ages 4 and older can test their courage through various levels of courses.
Instructors start out setting you up in a harness and then carefully walk you through the in’s and out’s of their safety system to prepare you for your venture. We learned about carabiners’ and tweezel’s and by the end of our self-guided tour, we had a good understanding of why they were so important to keeping us safe in the trees. You see, you have to use your carabiner to tweezell! “What” you say? At all times you are in a harness and the harness has two cables with hooks that attach to the wires that go from tree to tree. One cable is always locked and you use the carabiner to tweezel or unlock your other cable so you are safe and always attached to a wire.
Defy gravity with suspension and monkey bridges, Tarzan jumps, flying foxes and soaring zip-lines – all in the complete confidence and safety of Treetop Quest’s belay system. The courses start out easy with Level 1 for the younger kiddos and consist of all zipline or zipline with obstables. Obstables may be stepping from log to log, walking a rope, swinging or other adventurous idea they created!
We would definitely go back and recommend Treetop Quest for a fun family/friends outing, birthday party or group event. Treetop Quest is open on weekend through November and then closed to the public December through February (only open for group reservations). Weekends in November are your last chance before next season to soar amongst the trees!
