Sandy Spring Adventure Park (May 21)

Sandy Spring is an aerial forest ropes park consisting of more than 150 platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. The park reopened for the Spring season on March 12.

It sounds like super fun based on the rave reviews from everyone who's been there!

It has different levels of challenges (routes are labeled like ski slopes) so there's something for everyone.

Here is the park's website:

We expect to be there from 3-4 hours.

The weather on Saturday is looking good -- 80 degrees and no chance of rain!

This Meetup was rescheduled from May 14 owing to rain. It will now take place on Saturday, May 21 (hosted by Amena) and Sunday, May 22 (hosted by Emil).  Please sign up for the date that works better for you.

Please update your RSVP if you can't make it!

Available carpools:

Melissa: from Gaithersburg, can seat 4

Amy: from Reston, can seat 3

Luke: from Laurel, can seat 3

Let me know if you're driving and can offer a ride!

How to find us:

Meet at the Park at 10am. If you prefer to join us a bit later, just call my cell [masked]) to find us.

Anyone want to volunteer to co-host the latecomers? I may not be able to answer my phone if I am in the middle of the course (although that might be fun to watch!)

In terms of a meeting spot, the place is not that big. They have a little ticket booth (where you buy a ticket or turn in your groupon). We'll gather at the picnic bench in front of it.


Additional notes:

  • The day ticket for individuals is $48, valid for 3 hours.
  • A harness and gloves are provided with your admission ticket.
  • Wear well fitting clothing that does not allow anything to hang loose or get tangled in cables and rope. Long hair and jewelry should not be left loose. Sneakers or hiking shoes are recommended. Flip-flops and sandals are not appropriate.
  • Water is available and provided, but drinks and snacks are not currently available.
  • You are welcome to bring your own coolers and non-alcoholic beverages. No glass bottles please.

    Is everybody going as a group? I could be reading this wrong, but it looks like the website says group rate is $43 each with preregistration, otherwise as an individual you also have to become a member of Friends of Sandy Spring Friends School, which I believe is a $5 donation. Does anyone know if this is accurate?

    I would love to participate but unfortunately, I am unable to make 5/14. But I would love to join if the group decides on a future outing!
