Located just 20 minutes away from the heart of Pattaya is the Tree Top Adventure Park where you get to climb up trees, fly across the water, float amongst the woods while overlooking the peaceful forest. All of this might sound dangerous but I can guarantee that it is very safe as I have tried it and lived to tell the story.
Before the trainers at the Tree Top Adventure Park let you bring your inner monkey out, they give you basic training on the ground by teaching you how to use the park equipment. Then the trainers test you on three small stations that are just five meters off the ground. If you can pass these three stations then you are good to go.
Their harness and slings are still brand new and the trainer will supervise you throughout the course. The trainers are fluent in Thai, English and Arabic.
At present there are 17 stations that will put your courage to the test. There are ones where you have to climb up a rope ladder, swing from one tree to another, zip lining across the river and, my personal favorite, skateboarding in the air.
All this costs only 1,500 baht per person and you can take as long as you want to complete the course.
Miss Amanda Barrett, 22, an Australian tourist said, “I am not a very adventurous person at all and must admit I was pretty scared when I saw the course. Some of them were so high off the ground I didn’t think I could do them. The trainer told me the youngest player he has ever had was five years old and the oldest was 75 so I thought to myself if they could do it then I could do it too. After struggling through the first few stations due to my nervousness I started to cruise through the rest. It was also amazing to learn about how the whole park was created as well. I really admired how environmentally friendly the whole park was with no trees being torn down during construction and no concrete was used whatsoever. The platforms were not drilled into the trees so the trees can still grow as well.”
I would recommend this adventure to anyone no matter what gender or age because not only is it fun but you also burn calories and gain muscles without even realizing. They have a strict rule that you must be taller than 140 centimeters to play and, if you are under 12 years old, you must be accompanied by an adult.
Tree Top Adventure Park opens daily from 9am – 5am and have added a night time adventure which starts from 6.30pm until 8pm but guests can play until midnight.

One of the small stations in which every player must past before they are allowed to continue on to the full adventure.
One of the 17 stations available at the Tree Top Adventure Park is the flying skateboard.
Another adrenaline-pumping station is the flying carpet.
Even though the rule states that children must be taller than 140 cm to play, if the child is accompanied by a parent the child can still enjoy this fun filled adventure.
