Planning a trip to Nashville, Tennessee for your family? Looking for something on the adventurous side to do with your kids? Then Treetop Adventure Park is for you! It will keep your kids entertained for hours! Keep reading to find out why it is one of the best things to do in Nashville with kids!
What is Treetop Adventure Park?
The Treetop Adventure Park is a ropes course. It consists of four different ropes courses, all of different levels of difficulty. Each course is a little bit higher and more challenging than the one before it.
Additionally, there is a training course to practice on. This allows you to get comfortable with the harness, clips, and the obstacles before you get started. This training course is only about 5 feet off the ground.
There is also a small course for younger children.
It also has a zipline that is approximately 600 feet long. This is on top of the various ziplines that are built into the various ropes courses.
Why is it such a great activity for families?
The Treetop Adventure Park is a wonderful attraction for families to experience together for several reasons.
First of all, it is a fun activity that will get everyone in the family off their phones and moving around. There is nothing better to get the blood pumping than being up in the trees working your way through obstacles.
Secondly, a ropes course has a tendency to push most people out of their comfort zones. Doing this as a family will help you all to bond with each other.
Third, completing a ropes course together as a family will create lasting memories that you will be talking about for years to come. My family still laughs and teases each other about things that happened while we were at Treetop Adventure Park.
Lastly, working your way through the courses at Treetop Adventure Park is a great way to teach your kids to conquer their fears and that they are capable of more than they think. This is an awesome opportunity to teach your kids a huge life lesson in a fun and memorable way!
Can people of all ages participate?
Kids must be at least 7 years old to participate in the ropes courses at Treetop Adventure Park. Children this young will be able to do the children’s course.
In addition to being at least 7, your child must be able to reach their fingertips up to a height of 4’7″ while keeping their feet flat on the ground in order to reach the safety lines.
For the juniors and adult courses, there is no minimum age requirement. However, your kids will have to be able to reach to a height of 5’9″ while standing flat on their feet in order to climb the juniors course.
In order to participate on the adults course, children (and adults) must be able to reach up to a height of 5’11”. This is because at some points, you will need to reach this high in order to grab the safety lines on the course.
Treetop Adventure Park also has a general weight limit of 275 pounds. However, this is more of a guideline than anything else. The important thing is that the harness must fit you.
So, it really depends on your height and weight combination. If your waist is 46 inches or less, you should be able to fit into the harness.
Lastly, please remember that if you bring your children who are younger than 16 years old, an adult will have to climb the course with them. And you will need to be present and supervise your children participating on the children’s course at all times.
How long will it take to complete it?
Obviously, how long it takes to complete the entire course at Treetop Adventure Park will depend on how quickly you work your way through the obstacles and how many people are on the course at the same time.
Generally speaking, it will take approximately 3-4 hours to complete all of the courses on the adults/junior course.
My family spent about 3 hours here. We only did two of the four courses and the long zipline, but we took a break in between courses.
Where is it located?
The Treetop Adventure Park is located at the Nashville Shores at 4001 Bell Road in Hermitage, Tennessee.
Nashville Shores also includes several other components beyond just Treetop Adventure Park. It has a water park and a lake where you can rent boats and other water craft to enjoy all the water fun your heart can handle.
Additionally, Nashville Shores offers an RV park and cabins to rent so you can stay and play all in one convenient location!

The Treetop Adventure Park opens each Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 am. During the summer, it is open during some week days. The closing time varies. In the summer, it closes at 4 pm. During other times of the year, the park closes at either 2 or 3 pm.
When you buy your tickets, you will also need to select your day and start time. Groups start each hour on the hour, beginning at 10 am. You will need to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled start time to sign your waiver and get your harness.
Adult tickets are typically $49.99 per person. This will allow you to experience all four of the adult/junior courses and the long ziplines. Many times, you can get discounted tickets online at their website.
Child tickets are available for kids between the ages of 7-9. These tickets cost $24.99 and allows a child to climb the children’s course twice. You cannot use a child’s ticket on the adult or junior courses.
You will be required to go through a short training session on the training course before you begin the actual ropes courses.
You will need to wear closed-toe shoes during your time here. Loose, baggy clothing and jewelry are not allowed due to safety concerns while on the course. Additionally, if you have long hair, you will need to put it up while climbing on the course.
