Explore your wild side at TREETOP QUEST!

Often referred to as Gwinnett’s best kept secret, Treetop Quest is a hidden gem just 2 minutes from the Mall of Georgia at the Gwinnett Environmental and Heritage Center. With 7 courses and a unique harness-free course, Spider Quest, the Gwinnett location has an adventure for everyone! My family loves this place. We have been their guests several times. 

Treetop Quest combines zip lines with an airborne obstacle course for the most unique and exhilarating adventure course of its kind in Georgia. Experience the thrills of 120 challenging obstacles and high-flying ziplines. This aerial adventure park will challenge you physically and mentally as you maneuver from tree to tree through obstacles and zip-lines. 

Once you’re equipped with gloves and a harness, they will teach you how to operate your equipment and you’ll be able to swing through each course as many times as you want for 2.5 hours. You will be connected to a NEW continuous belay system, a lifeline that is impossible to detach without a staff member. The activity is self-guided but the fantastic staff will be there to assist whenever needed.

One of the things that I love most about Treetop Quest is that it is designed for the whole family to enjoy, beginning with kids just four years old and progressing to adults.

The Chick Pea Course is specifically designed for kids from four to six years old. With platforms only three feet from the ground, this course features 15 obstacles including zip lines, monkey bridges, plank bridges, cargo net crossings and more. Children wear helmets, gloves, and their safety is ensured with a continuous life line system and an on ground supervisor at all times.

There is even an all zip-line course for those who are not quite as athletic as others or who just want to enjoy the thrill without the work! The views from the zip lines are amazing.
