by Eva Potter

Get ready to test your night vision this fall at Holiday Valley’s Sky High Adventure Park.

On Oct. 4 – 5, Aerial Park courses will stay open late for new Night Crawlers climbs. Test your in-the-dark climbing skills using only your headlamp as your guide during the 2 ½-hour night climb.

Additional Night Crawlers climbs will take place Oct. 18–19. Special Halloween Fright Nights will be Oct. 25–26.

Brian Halloran, Sky High Aerial Adventure Park manager, said, “There is no previous climbing experience required, but it would be to your advantage knowing the courses.”

The concept of Night Crawlers was developed by park builder Bahman Azarm of Outdoor Adventure Group to add an exciting and new twist on the aerial climbing experience.

“It makes for a great nighttime recreational activity, with a little element of spookiness due to the unknown heights and elements ahead, whereas in the daytime, you can see what you’re in for next,” said Halloran.

On Fright Nights, Oct. 25 and 26, you will surely have some spooky Halloween encounters during your climbs so keep your cool and follow the light of your headlamp.

“If you enjoy being out on cool autumn nights and enjoying nature, there is no better thrill than nighttime climbing. It brings what is already a great adventure to a whole new level,” said Halloran.

Climbs begin at 6 p.m. and end at 9:30 p.m. Reservations are required. Grand Rapids and Black courses will not available for night climbs. Climbers must be age be at least 7 years of age and at least 36 inches tall.
