What is Take Flight?

Take Flight is Maine’s leading Aerial Adventure Course and Adventure Zip Tour in Maine. The Aerial Adventure Challenge Course has over 60 activities and elements. We offer 2 Adventure Zip Tours with 6 different zip wires on each tour along with several climbing elements that take you on a high flying adventure through the trees!

Safety

It’s our number 1 concern at Take Flight.  Our staff is specially trained, and equipment checks are done daily before anyone is allowed on the course or zip lines.

 
Do you require a waiver?

Yes. Every guest needs read, understand, and have a  completed waiver signed before participating. Guests who are under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian fill out the waiver before they can participate. Our waiver is available to be printed or completed online HERE.

What are the height & age restrictions?

Both the Aerial Adventure Course and Adventure Zip Tours require guests to be minimum 48” tall and between 50-250 pounds.

On the Aerial Adventure Course only, one guest in each group of two or three needs to be able to reach a height of 7ft. This is usually a guest who is 5’1″ or 5’2″. 7 ft. is the height of our cables you connect to while on the Aerial Adventure Course. One person needs to reach in order to move the clips from one cable to another.

Are reservations required?

Reservations are highly recommended for the Aerial Adventure Course. Reservations guarantee your time on the course as walk-ins are on a first-come first-serve basis.

Reservations are required for the Adventure Zip Tour.

What equipment is provided? Can I bring my own?

All equipment needed to participate is provided. You are outfitted with a harness, helmet, and belay lanyards. You will not be allowed to use your own equipment on the course.

What will I be doing?

Our Aerial Adventure Course has sixty elements of varying degree of difficulty spanning three levels to a height of 36’ above the ground. Guests traverse the elements taking on a new challenge with every step. Elements include walking, climbing, and swinging through the air. There is no quantifiable level of fitness required to participate in the fun. Participants should be of reasonable health and possess no medical conditions that could pose harm to themselves or others in undertaking light to moderate to strenuous levels of exercise. The course requires varying levels of strength, stamina, and agility. If you are unsure about your ability to participate please consult your doctor prior to your visit.

 

Adventure Zip Line Tours consist of traveling on 6 zip wires connected to tress and utility poles where you zip from platform to platform. Zip lines are 75’-400’ long. In between some zip lines there will be bridges and cargo nets that you will use to traverse to your next zip ride. Two staff members accompany each tour providing safety instruction, information on the area, ecology, and plenty of laughs!

Do you offer staff buddies for single guests?

For smaller children, parents can “hire a buddy” for the day. A Take Flight guide takes the group around the course assisting with transfers and coaching guests through the elements. Want to go through the Adventure Course but don’t have a partner? That’s alright! Please call ahead to reserve a buddy!

Guests can participate on the Adventure Zip Tour without a buddy.

Is the Course certified?

Take Flight was built by WingSpeed Adventures, a full service provider of challenge courses and zip wires. WingSpeed Adventures is a certified Professional Vendor Member of the Association for Challenge Course Technologies (ACCT).

Can we bring the dog?

Yes you can! We have specific areas set aside for our four-legged friends! We do ask that dogs stay out of our garden area but they can play in our dog area. All dogs supervised and on a leash.

Take Flight is a non-smoking and tobacco free  facility.
