A totally unique — and totally fun! — tree-based adventure park, proudly located at Ijams Nature Center. New to the United States, aerial adventure parks have been popular in Europe for a number of years. Adventure parks typically consist of a series of pole-based structures connected by different “challenge elements” and, sometimes, ziplines. At Navitat, we’ve taken the very best components of the self-guided aerial adventure park model and built it in and among the trees! When you visit Navitat Knoxville, you’ll find something truly spectacular and unique — an adventure you’ll want to experience over and over again, and one you’ll rave about for years to come!
