New Ropes Course & Zip Line Adventure Opens This Week in Mercer County, NJ
I know you've been patiently waiting for this and it's almost time.
Mercer County has announced that its new, really cool Ropes Course & Zip Line in Mercer County Park (West Windsor) is about to open to the public.
This Sunday, September 10th will be the big day. Registration is now open.
It certainly looks impressive, doesn't it? This is exciting. I know many residents looking for a thrill can't wait to try it out.
A few members of the Mercer County Park Commission volunteered to test it out recently and gave it the thumbs up.
The course is pretty high up. Executive Director, Aaron T. Watson loved it saying, "I felt like I was amongst the trees and got a fantastic bird's eye view of Mercer Lake. Along with our campgrounds and our outdoor exercise equipment, I'm proud to add this additional feature to Mercer County Park."
The course will be open starting on Sunday to all those 12 and older.
It features 12 different challenges for you to tackle including the Zigzag, Swinging Logs, and the Postman's Walk.
Mercer County has teamed up with the Philadelphia Outward Bound School to make sure you're getting the most of your experience and that everything is running smoothly. The staff will be cheering you on and helping you, if needed.
There are two adventures to pick from:
If you choose Adventure 1 you'll do the Cargo Net Climb, Full Adventure Course and Leap of Faith. It takes about two hours to complete. It costs $25 for those 12 to 17 and $30 for those 18 and older. You must pre-register by clicking here. You can add the zip line for $5 more.
