Zombie Zip Lines promises to provide new thrills throughout the month of October at Edge Adventures Aerial Park – Deep River NWI as the park is transformed into a Halloween experience. Zombies took up residence on Fridays from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., with the last Zip Line Adventure beginning at 8:00 p.m.

Against a backdrop of fall leaves bathed in Halloween lights and spooky sounds, beginning adventurers and weekend warriors can zip-line their way through more than 50 treetop obstacles, while zombies roam the scary forest below and ghosts hang out in adjacent trees.

All of the aerial park’s challenges provide thrills and screams for guests at every skill level, as guests celebrate Halloween all month long. Adults and kids can harness up and climb into the trees to embark on adventures that include traversing across rope bridges, balancing on log beams or climbing on cargo nets.

There will be a far less scary experience at the kids’ course which includes low to the ground elements, zip lines and little pumpkin adventures for children ages 4-7. Tickets are $10 for a one-hour experience.

Edge Adventures provides all safety equipment – helmet, harnesses, belays and gloves. Guests participate in a safety briefing and practice course, and are assisted by Edge ACCT-trained staff throughout each of the course routes. They have the thrill of climbing, zipping and working through the courses with the security of knowing that they are 100 percent on the safety line from start to finish.

Certain age, height and weight limits apply for the larger courses. Adventurers must be at least 8 years old, with a minimum weight of 40 pounds and a maximum weight of 275 pounds. Hands must reach 66 inches high with feet flat on the ground. The two-hour adventure is $42 for adults and $32 for children 8-12. The three-hour adventure is $49 for adults, $39 for children 8-12. Groups of 20 or more may reserve a group adventure any day subject to availability. Call or email for details.

Edge Adventures Aerial Park NWI is located at 9001 E. Lincoln Highway, Crown Point. The park is open on Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. (last two- hour adventure departs at 8:00 p.m.). Zip line adventures (minus the zombies) are also available on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (last two-hour adventure departing at 4:00 p.m.) throughout the month of October.
