A Thrilling Treetop Adventure Awaits in Nearby London, Ontario

There are so many cool things about the city of London, Ontario, that it’s hard to find a place to begin. But one of the most unique attractions is a small ski resort — Boler Mountain — found in the city itself. And when the snow melts, the fun doesn’t stop. That’s when this amazing family destination transitions into Treetop Adventure Park complete with multiple zip lines, rope courses, swinging bridges, Tarzan swings and pirate nets that are guaranteed to entertain visitors during the warmer months.

Recently, this writer had the opportunity to experience the Treetop Adventure Park for the very first time, along with two other first-timers. We ranged in age from thirties to fifties, and two of us had a slight fear of heights. As it turned out, we had nothing to worry about!

Following some fairly detailed instructions and practice lessons provided by the staff, we set out on our way. The more we proceeded through the courses, the faster we were able to safely make our way through the challenges of the treetops. As for my fear of heights, it was no issue at all! You are so focused on your next step and where to place your hands and feet that you almost forget that you’re not actually on solid ground. 

We spent a total of 2.5 hours on the course, successfully attempting and completing all but the most advanced course (which we’re saving for our next visit). Our adventure culminated with a big finish — a ride on the 1,100-foot big zip! And it was pretty amazing!

The course is designed for people 8 and older, from 60 to 275 pounds. There is a separate junior course for the younger crowd that’s perfect for gatherings such as birthday parties.

If the treetops are a little too much adventure, Boler Mountain also features well-maintained mountain biking and fitness trails.

Hours are noon to dusk Friday and 9 a.m. to dusk Saturday and Sunday and reservations must be made in advance.
