Aerial Adventure Hilton Head will become Hilton Head Island's newest attraction when it opens April 1 at Broad Creek Marina. The unique, two-hour attraction features 50 in-the-tree challenging activities on six different ability courses, easy to hard, designed to accommodate various levels of physical fitness. As a confidence and team morale building experience, this is pure self-guided fun where the harnessed and helmeted participants are hooked to the cable continuously throughout the journey.
“Our new adventure is for all ages -- a 5-year-old will love our green courses, and a Marine will enjoy our black 'rough and tough' courses. The rest of us can enjoy the in-between blue journeys,” said owner Roger Freedman.
Aerial Adventure Hilton Head features many Hilton Head-themed activities including those that salute the water and beaches, the region’s wildlife and the military. This aerial park concept has seen huge growth in popularity throughout Europe, and now, the Lowcountry has its own.
Among the specific challenging activities obstacles are:
Skyak; Spiderman web walk; hula hoop hill; left/right military climbing wall; roller coaster log bridge; commando crawl; buoy bumper bridge; Tarzan swing; floating fishy climbing wall; island hopping; shipwreck bridge; ziggy zag bridge; flying frisbees; no telling tunnel; bouncing Osprey nests; sand dollar skyway;an “electric” slide zip; big blue catch; soaring hawk and barrel bounce bridge.
In addition to the new aerial sky playground, both a rock climbing wall and a bungee trampoline have been added. All the new adventures are designed to provide unique destinations for corporate outings, celebrations and team moral building events. The company’s popular Up the Creek Pub & Grill, located right next door, will cater on the ground at the adventure sites or welcome groups to come up for their toasts and parties.
“Aerial Adventure is a unique addition to all the wonderful activities there are to experience on Hilton Head Island. It’s an outing many visitors will be glad to add to their vacation must-do list,” said Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber if Commerce president and CEO Bill Miles.
The Saferoller continuous belay system provides maximum safety and increases the enjoyment of the Aerial Adventure Hilton Head experience by not having to switch from cable to cable after each activity.
The attraction is located on the 15 acre complex know as Broad Creek Marina Adventures at 33 Broad Creek Marina Way, adjacent to the ZipLine tour course. Next door is both Broad Creek Marina and Up the Creek Pub & Grill, also owned by Freedmanm. Freedman bought the Marina in 1993, razed it and rebuilt it in 2005 adding the popular restaurant. In spring 2012, ZipLine Hilton Head opened as the only zipline canopy tour within 250 miles, and has welcomed over 43,000 guests in just two years.
