Sneak Peek: The New Treetops!

img_4303It all started with a plan…just some styrofoam, pencils and paper. The finished outcome is a great use of repurposed ground.

After more than 800 hours of people power, we demolished the old Treetops Slide and completely reimagined the space.  What you’ll find now is our take on a tree house, complete with observation decks that look out over the entire farm and two brand new slides to enjoy!

img_4813The three observation decks stand 12 feet above the Fall Festival grounds and the views are amazing! You could probably spot your friends coming down the Dino Slide or coming out of the Party Barn on the Hayride. Because of its length (30 feet), some of the wood had to be brought in from Louisiana, and in all, 84 posts had to be cemented into the ground to secure its stability.

img_4825The new Treetops is sure to be a crowd-pleaser this fall! Don’t miss your chance to be among the first to experience it this weekend!
