Adrenaline-fueled adventures start here

By Stephanie Ricca

Strap into your harness and slam an energy drink - your adrenaline will be pumping with these high-flying adventures. 

Common Ground Canopy Tours
Touring the canopy at the Oberlin-based Common Ground is always an adrenaline-fueled education. Guides take you or your crew (group rates are available) through an immersive 2.5-hour experience that includes highlights about the local land, flora, and fauna, as well as awesome aerial staircases, bridges, and ziplines that conquer Oberlin's forested wilderness. It's also a great family experience. Children ages 10 and up are welcome to join the adventure, helping even the most Earth-bound among us to experience new highs. Off the line, Common Ground offers a wealth of innovative programs encouraging eco-friendly living.

Zip City USA
Regardless of the weather or season, thrill seekers can satisfy their adventure cravings indoors at Zip City. The Streetsboro mega-park has not just one but five ziplines, a 32-foot high rock-climbing wall, and an epic trampoline park that has two open jump courts, basketball courts, foam pit, and even a dodge ball court. And if you think rappelling, bouncing, and zipping is just for kids, think again: Zip City hosts catered, audiovisual-capable corporate events and meetings as well as birthday parties and Mommy & Me sessions. Children under six can find their own fun in the special tots area of the trampoline park.
