My kids were super excited to learn that we were getting hosted to visit a ropes obstacle course near us, that even had ziplines! Boundless Adventures is in Berlin, Massachusetts and every last one of us, even though we have very different thresholds for thrills, had a fabulous time.

Boundless Adventures, Berlin, Massachusetts
Boundless Adventures is an aerial park with nine courses, varying in height, difficulty and physicality. The courses have obstacles such as tightropes, ladders, zip lines and rolling elements.
They are very careful about safety, using double belays, so one is connected until they reach the ground. They also have lots of staff around to help you if you need it at all. The staff was the highlight of our day at the obstacle course.
My middle son and his friend were ready to get up onto the intermediate adventures– the Motivation Courses. All the courses are obviously marked, so you acan’t accidentally end up someplace you don’t intend. I went up with them the first time, then they were able to go alone, since there are walking paths and picnic tables available to keep an eye on your kids.
Can an Anxious Kid Do This Adventure Course?
My youngest son was a different story. He is pretty anxious and actually laughed when we walked in and told me, “You didn’t actually think this was something I would like, did you?” I had asked him at home if he wanted to come and he said yes. We had been to a smaller adventure course in Montreal, Canada and he didn’t warm up to it. I figured he was older and braver, but this was not starting well. As soon as he put the harness on at Boundless Adventures, he wanted nothing to do with the course.
The staff was incredibly patient with him, spending time adjusting his harness and talking through all the ways he could try the courses. If a person finds the course is too much, there are ways to get safely down.
He spent about an hour, watching from a bench. After I had done a few courses myself, I came down to visit with him. He decided he wanted to try, now it looked like fun. We went back to get his harness on and the staff again helped talk through what would happen on the course. By the time he finished the first course, he couldn’t wait to try to do others!
If you have an anxious kid, you can imagine what a confidence boost it can be for a kid like this to conquer his fears. I believe this family day will help him try many other new things as well. I am so glad we came and spent the day at Boundless Adventures!
