Ramblewild Berkshires General Info
Ramblewild Adventure Park is a full-on aerial ropes course in Lanesborough, Massachusetts. Everyone 7 years or older is welcome, but you must be 55 inches or taller to safely use the equipment.

What is an Aerial Adventure Park?
Before we get into the fun courses at Ramblewild we should explain what exactly it is! An aerial adventure park is a high ropes course made in the most creative way possible. It’s filled with ladders, ziplines, and everything in between.
Think of a massive jungle gym that’s lifted into the sky and mixed with unique obstacles, but that’s not just for kids! To fully conquer Ramblewild in the Berkshires you’ll need upper body strength combined with concentration and balance. Yet, don’t worry… The Ramblewild Adventure Park has courses for all skill levels.
Ramblewild Park Courses
Staring up into the Hemlock trees, we couldn’t believe how many different tracks were built above us. In fact, there are 8 different ropes courses spread across 10+ acres of forest! In the middle of Ramblewild Adventure Park, there is a large ravine, with a massive 200-foot suspension bridge connecting the two sides.
The different courses range from beginner yellow triangles to the most extreme black diamond. They’re joined together by a range of ziplines, rope ladders, logs, bridges, nets, rope swings, and anything else you could think of. Some of the ziplines will even take you over 100 feet high off the ground!
Our Day at Ramblewild Adventure Park
Aerial Adventure Park Training
So you might be wondering… How do you stay safe at Ramblewild park? Well, for starters your guide will take you through a training course where you can get some practice in. Here you’ll get your helmet and gear, and learn how, when, and where to strap in the harnesses.
This is essential as most people have never seen anything like Ramblewild in the Berkshires! Most importantly, we learned that the pully system always has you hooked from tree to tree so you’re never in danger of actually falling. After about 20 minutes of training, we were ready to take on our first course at the aerial adventure park.
Out on the Ramblewild Courses
We started off on the yellow trail, and it was the perfect beginner course. Right away though, we realized this wasn’t as easy as we thought. Not only does it take quite a bit of concentration to make it between each obstacle, but you’ll need the balance to go with it!
Our guide Lauren helped us with some tips along the way, and before we knew it we were gliding through the trees. The different jumps and bridges were all super fun, but our favorite Ramblewild activity was definitely the ziplines. There’s no better feeling than flying through the forest with your legs out, and hollering at the top of your lungs!
Moving onto the Blue Trails
After we had successfully completed an yellow and green course, we moved onto the more challenging blue trails. At this point, we definitely were getting our exercise in! We actually ran out of time before moving onto the black diamond courses. However, we didn’t mind because we were exhausted and happy to leave something for next time!
Fun For Everyone
If there is one activity you take on this year in the Berkshires it should be the Ramblewild Adventure Park! We loved being outdoors and visiting the park was truly unique to anything we have done. The team at Ramblewild was not only highly professional and experienced but made our afternoon memorable!
