We spent a day conquering our fears and playing in the tree canopy at Boundless Adventures. Located in the 200-acre Bristol Woods Park in Kenosha, WI is the ropes and zip line park of Boundless Adventures. The aerial adventure park features 9 courses that include 100 rope bridges, 19 zip lines, and 3 leaps of faith. Just an hour’s drive from Chicago and thirty minutes from Milwaukee, this is a great family-friendly day trip.

Our family has a range of comfort levels with a high ropes course and zip lines. We loved that Boundless Adventures offers a variety of courses for each skill level. There are Beginner (yellow), Intermediate (green), Advanced (blue), and Expert (black) courses. You start off on beginner or intermediate and must complete one of those before advancing to more advanced courses.

We booked a three-hour experience at Boundless Adventures. The first step was to get fitted with a full-body harness that came with two Clic-iT Smart Belay devices. Boundless Adventures utilizes a network of cables between utility poles and trees that participants clip in with the Clic-iT device and their harness. This coupled system is a redundant system to make sure you are always connected to the ropes course with at least one connection by typically two. We spent a few minutes with the staff learning how to connect to the cables and disconnect safely.

 

You should review some of the age restrictions and adult supervision requirements before booking your experience. Although younger kids are restricted we found that you can have as much fun spending the day completing green and yellow courses as you can on the blue and black. Although, several of us completed the black course we did not feel that the more challenging course was any more fun. It was simply more physically challenging.

Each course offers a variety of 10-14 obstacles for you to overcome. They will require your courage, strength, balance, and stamina to conquer them. We felt safe the entire time we were swinging, climbing, zip lining, or traversing their courses. This challenged our fears and our minds as we figured out the most efficient way to solve an obstacle. The three hours flew by and the kids were begging for another visit soon as we left.

This is a great family-friendly aerial adventure experience. It was nice for the family to work together and support each other and to be away from our phones for three hours breathing in some fresh air. We built up an appetite working out in the trees and finished our experience with a quick stop to a famous Wisconsin restaurant the Brat Stop which is just minutes away in Kenosha, WI. We enjoyed reliving our favorite obstacles over brats and pizza before returning home.

We highly recommend a family visit to Boundless Adventure to test your boundaries!
