Our History

AERIAL ADVENTURES lopened in 2008.


Dave Hanley and his son, Mike, started looking at development options for a parcel of abandoned railroad right of way that the family owned since the early 1980s when they built THE END OF THE LINE Caboose Motel(now condominiums) at 302 Townline Rd, in Lake Geneva. The right of way was long(2000') and narrow and heavily wooded. A unique challenge for development. A friend had just returned from Belize where he tried Ziplining. A Zipline is usually long, narrow and flies through the tree tops. Perfect for this location.


Dave and Mike spent nearly 2 years traveling to different Zipline facilities in the process of researching this new recreation opportunity. In 2006 there were only a handful of commercial Zipline facilities open in the U.S., there are nearly 300 today. The Hanley's research led them to ABEE, Inc., a company based in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. ABEE, Inc. was then the premier builder of Ziplines, Challenge Courses, and Climbing elements for the camping/retreat application. AERIAL ADVENTURES was to be their first entry into the commercial side of the industry. AERIAL ADVENTURES  would be one of the first of its type in the Midwest.


A design was chosen including 2 Ziplines, a Climbing Tower, and a High Ropes Course. After nearly a year in construction, AERIAL ADVENTURES  opened in May, 2008. Since then, our facility has expanded to include a true 3 Zipline Canopy Tour, 2 - 40' Climbing Towers, a High and Low Ropes Course, meeting areas, and our brand new 'Zorbi' Ball. A 2 rider Giant Swing is also planned for 2014!


In 2012, AERIAL ADVENTURES added a strong focus on corporate teambuilding and special event functions. Groups can now reserve the entire facility for either a 1/2 day or a full day. Our experienced program directors can tailor a program to fit any type of group function. Corporate teambuilding outings, birthday parties, pre-wedding events, reunions, etc.


Our goal at AERIAL ADVENTURES is to continuously add to and improve our venue  ensuring that we continue to be the Midwest's Best Outdoor Recreation Facility.
