Guests and staff are encouraged to stay home and will not be admitted if
they are showing signs of illness or have been in contact with an individual who is ill. Guests can check TreeRunnerWestBloomfield.com , Facebook, and Instagram for the most up to date information regarding hours of operation.
TreeRunner Adventure Parks are not one single aerial treetop trail but a variety of different, color-coded aerial trails of differing challenge levels, beginner through expert, that climbers choose from depending on their age or climbing experience. These trails consist of platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form crossings of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses that are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s “always locked on” system of interlocking safety clips. Before venturing onto the trails climbers receive an interactive orientation and practice session.
