The Aerial Adventure Park has rapidly become one of the most popular attractions in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Imagine yourself exploring the Black Hills in our obstacle course suspended in the trees! Following a safety demonstration, you’ll begin your adventure by traversing suspended bridges, climbing log ladders, balancing along cables, and riding ziplines through the forest!

After our most recent addition, Rushmore Tramway Adventures is now offering eight different Aerial Adventure Park courses. Sprawling over two acres, incorporating upwards of 100 different platforms, and 11 ziplines it’s the ultimate adventure. Starting with the yellow course being the easiest to black being the most difficult, we’ve ensured there’s something for all skill levels in your family or group.

Be sure to wear closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

The child ticket allows climbing on five of the eight courses. They are able to climb two yellow (easiest) and three green (intermediate) courses. An adult ticket allows climbing on two additional blue courses (advanced) and the black course (expert).
Each ticket is good for 1 hour and 45 minutes. This includes a 15-minute safety briefing that outlines how to properly use the equipment.
We recommend closed-toe shoes and comfortable clothing that you can move around it. Depending on the time of year, you might want to pack a light rain coat as we do get occasional rainstorms.
Above all else, safety is truly our primary concern. Prior to opening for the day, each course is inspected on a daily basis to ensure everything is in proper working order. Additionally, we perform weekly and monthly inspections to double and triple check. Each harness and carabiner set are routinely checked for proper functioning as well. If we find something that isn’t up to our standards we retire the equipment immediately. Beyond that, we hire a third party, licensed and certified aerial park inspector to make sure we didn’t miss anything.
There are 11 different ziplines integrated throughout the courses. They range in size from 25 to 150 feet.
