Is Jiminy Peak's Aerial Adventure fun?

jiminy peak aerial adventureShannon emails:

I was wondering if any of you or the AOA readers have been to the Aerial Adventure Park at Jiminy Peak. If so, was it fun? I can't really tell if it'd be fun for a group of 20-somethings to do for the day, or if it's more aimed at kids. It looks like it could be fun, but I don't want to pay for something if I'll just be disappointed.

We have not been. But we agree, it does look fun (you know, if you're not acrophobic). Though, at about $40/person, it'd be nice to have a better sense before heading out to Western Mass.

So, has anyone tried it? Please share!

Two friends of mine tried it and said it's pretty fun and tough at the same time. I asked if they could compare it to the one in the Adirondacks and they said no way, this one is more of the real deal.

Oh man, it is SO much fun, its fantastic. There are a bunch of skill levels available. They are very high up, but you are securely strapped in so it is not too bad even if you have a fear of heights. I went with a 10 year old, a 13 year old, two adults in our late 20's, and a 58 year old, and we all had a fantastic time. I would absolutely go back, and recommend it to about anyone. The only down side is the steep price, but given their insurance costs to run something like that I think it is understandable.

Really, really fun. I'm 47 and went with my 13 and 11 year old boys. We all loved it and want to go back soon. The intermediate level is very challenging, the easy courses are plenty fun and no walk in the park either. Staff was stoked on the whole setup as well. Great times.

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up.

Although it's outside the Capital Region and so naturally isn't included in the AOA listing, as ever I remind everyone that the Dutchess County Fair is the biggest of all NYS county fairs and worth the trip to Rhinebeck.
