While it is a relatively new concept in Texas, an Aerial Adventure Park is a self guided ropes course with a focus on FUN! It consists of:
- Military-style obstacles (cargo nets, wobble bridges, tight ropes, ladders, etc.)
- Zip Lines where the participant is in control
- Six Courses with varying degrees of difficulty
Who can participate? Anyone who is:
- Above the age of 6 years old AND at least 48” tall
- Able to grasp a cable 60” above them while flat-footed
- And LESS than 265 lbs.
Is it physical?
Adventure parks are exciting and challenging and are suitable for participants of average fitness level. You do not need to be in peak physical condition to participate, but you WILL break a sweat.
We are seven acres of family-friendly fun located by the Great Trinity Forest Gateway Park and Horse Trails. A stone's throw from the Trinity River in Dallas, TX. Whether it's a Family Fun day, Summer Camp, Birthday Party, Sunday School Outing or Corporate Team Building, we have something for you. The Aerial Adventure Park is
absolutely unique to the state of Texas and Trinity Forest Adventure Park is the first and only Aerial Adventure Park in Texas, right off Interstate 20 in Dallas. It consists of cargo nets, bridges, climbing features, balance beams and other features that allow a participant to travel from one part of the course to another. There are six courses and four levels of difficulty suited to challenge every type of ability and fitness level. We offer three hours of solitude, introspection, wildlife observation, nature appreciation, oneness with your inner self and your surroundings
OR three hours of adrenaline rush, gut check, full throttle, eye popping adventure as you climb, zip, soar and drop through two hundred year old Post Oak trees.

Brad & Judy Lee
Owners of Trinity Forest Adventure Park
Brad and Judy Lee, owners of The Southern Cross, decided to build Texas’ first and only aerial adventure park, after visiting several successful parks in the Northeast during the fall of 2012. Aerial adventure parks have existed for years in Europe with more than 2000 parks in operation. The concept was introduced to the United States from Europe in 2009.
Devoted Environmentalists and Naturalists, the Lees made every effort during construction of
the park to keep the land in its natural state wherever possible, and they continue to support causes to that end.
In 2005 the Lees received an award from the International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council for their service.
