Open Air Adventure Park is the result of many years of hard work, heartache and endurance. The idea was born when Tim attended a conference put on by an organization known as the Association of Challenge Course Technology, where the idea of aerial adventure parks was introduced. Tim had spent over 10 years building, installing and training people on ropes courses and ziplines. Reaching exhaustion from the travel and wanting to be home with his growing family, the idea of creating an adventure that he loves was intriguing.
He brought the idea to his wife Catherine and his in-laws Jim and Amy. They loved the idea, so the process of Open Air began. We battled high ground water, excavators who lost their license, changes in builders and a delayed construction time. After all was said and done we finally opened our doors in May of 2014. The challenges where worth it, when we got to see the first smiles on our course.
What we strive for in our operations is to provide excellent customer service that leaves our customers feeling valued. We take such joy in a guest overcoming a fear of heights, watching family and friends play together, and see memories created that endure long after our guests return home.
