Ever since we were able to experience the new Sky Trails adventure ropes course at Pittsburgh Mills last year, my kids have been asking to go again! They loved this adventure and I loved how it pushed them to be brave and challenge themselves.
Our youngest ones started on the Sky Tykes ropes course that is specifically for kids under 48" tall, geared towards children ages 2-7. It's a fun experience for them and allows them to work on their balance and using the harness. The platforms are less than 3’ off the ground and they ask a chaperone to assist.
The Sky Trail® adventure ropes course stands 32' tall with 2 levels of 30 elements. The elements are horizontally strung ropes and bridge activities like zig-zag beams, criss-cross angled rope ladders and cargo nets secured between steel poles. It's so much fun! It's built right next to the food court at the mall, so you have quite the interesting views from the top as well.
All ages and abilities can experience the Sky Trail® attraction. Participants are able to choose their path through the rope elements while going at their own pace with the ability to pass other participants at each platform. This course requires a 48" minimum height to participate alone however adventurers 42” or higher can participate with an adult.
My 6yo was way less scared than I thought he would be!
And then there is the zip line!
My 4yo wasn't tall enough to go by herself on the upper level, but I could go along with her. She was timid at first. but did great. Once she had her first zip line ride, she was definitely hooked!
