I’d see the promo’s being pumped out and wasn’t sure what to expect when I accepted an invitation from Fernie Alpine Resort to check-out their new Aerial Playground and Zipline. When I arrived at FAR I wasn’t surprised to find the fist chair boy, Greg Burrows, and shutterbug gone local, Mark Gallop in the preview crowd. FAR GM, Andy Cohen, suggested that this outing wasn’t as prestigious as first chair, he called us guinea pig’s! It was a good joke and the park certainly looks big and scarey however we quickly discovered that the park is very well built and the risk is very manageable.
Did I mention addictive? This park has my attention—I can’t wait to take my nine year old son, and these parks are popping up everywhere! I can see the park being great for families, parties, staff gatherings, and any special occasion, or just for a quick adrenaline pump! So congratulations to FAR for having the vision and thanks for building a new place to play! Here are some images from today’s fun:
