What should I wear for a Treehouse World Adventure?
Closed-toe shoes are an absolute must for many activities at Treehouse World. Athletic sneakers are recommended. Absolutely no flip flops, sandals, slip on shoes, high heel, or open-toed shoes are permitted on many of the activities.
We suggest wearing clothing that is comfortable to allow freedom of motion. Additionally, please wear clothing that is comfortable and modest for wearing a typical rock climbing harness, if you intend to participate in those activities. Any type of pants or shorts are easier to fit than most dresses or skirts. Lastly, Treehouse World is "in the woods," so you might not want to wear fine clothing that can't get a bit dirty. Dress them as if you were going on a hike or to the park to romp around on the playground.
What happens if it rains?
Great question! We are an outdoor facility. We continue to operate when it's raining with a few caveats. We can climb, explore treehouses and generally do everything else Treehouse World has to offer. The only exception is the bungy trampoline because it has electric motors. If the weather forecast looks extremely unfavorable, we like to be in touch with our customers 24 hours prior to the event and like to make a firm mutual decision 12 hours prior to the event. If the party day is a total washout, we will gladly refund your deposit and/or reschedule for a mutually favorable time. If the party has begun, and a storm comes through, we generally try to keep the party going. We may duck inside until the storm passes, however, if it remains a total washout we refund the party amount on a pro-rated basis for the unused time or can reschedule. No shows will forfeit their total deposit.
Should I worry about bugs, ticks and poison ivy?
It is impossible to avoid these things entirely, but our staff actively removes and keeps participants away from poison ivy. We employ guinea hens and chickens to help eat all of the ticks they can find, but we still strongly suggest that participants have someone they trust check them for ticks after adventuring at Treehouse World.
