FAQ

What’s an Aerial Adventure Park?

CBAA contains platforms that range from 12 feet to 40 feet high. Climbers take the action into their own hands by choosing to go on easy, intermediate, or advanced courses (age/chaperone restrictions apply). There are 7 courses at the park. Each course contains 7 to 8 obstacles to work through and enjoy. The obstacles are designed around a maritime theme using ropes, cables, wood, barrels, stir-ups, cargo nets and more. Each of the courses include a mini zip, with some bringing you back to the main tower. The higher up the central tower you go, the more difficult the obstacles become.The easiest of the courses begin with our 3 green level trails. These are appropriate for all participants and levels of ability. Next there are 3 intermediate trails that increase in height and difficulty (age/chaperone restrictions). The pinnacle is the red course, the ultimate test of will and stamina. Have no fear, climbers will be in a harness and attached to a safety device while completing each obstacle, at all times. Typically climbers will complete 3-4 courses (21-28 obstacles) during the 2 hour climb. Guides provide supervision and assistance as needed. CBAA is the only Aerial Adventure Park in the beach area located conveniently on N. A1A 6419 N.Atlantic Ave 32920

 How safe is the Cocoa Beach Aerial Adventure Park?

At CBAA, we use only the  highest quality safety equipment. Our Koala continuous belay system allows participants to experience the park without having to clip and unclip “claws” as they move from one obstacle to the next. The guides are the only people attaching you to the belay system. You can NOT accidentally unclip your self. The course has been designed and built by ACCT vendor Challenge Design Innovations and is inspected by a licensed ACCT inspector annually. ACCT is the governing organization overlooking the safety and well being of Aerial Adventure Parks, Zip lines, Challenge courses and Towers. Aerial Adventure Parks are obstacle courses, so there are lots of materials used such as wood, ropes, cables and plastic. Some materials are more forgiving than others. Scrapes and bruises may occur while on the course.

What is the time duration
of the ticket?

2 hours of climbing on the course. It is best to fill out the waiver online before you arrive at CBAA. Upon arrival all valuables, including cell phone, wallets, cameras, etc. must be left in the car; loose items are NOT permitted on the tower. Be sure to bring water with you! Car keys can be left at the front desk in our key-check. At the time of check-in you will be suited in a harness, helmet, and gloves then taken to a ground school rules and safety training (takes 20-30 minutes). Please arrive at your scheduled reservation time. For example if your reservation is at 10 a.m., arrive by 9:45 a.m. and the entire experience will be completed around 12:45 a.m

Participants must weigh less than 250 lbs. We do not recommend the course for pregnant women. People who are under 5′ tall must be participating with someone who is 5 feet tall on the course, this must be a 1:2 ratio within your party. Children 6 and under qualify as the child ticket. Ages 7 – 15 qualify for the junior admission. All tickets are valid for 2 hours of climbing. All participants must be able to fit into a harness properly. Trained adventure guides will ensure that harnesses are fitted properly.

What if my kids want to go on the course and I don’t want to?

Your child must be at least 5 yrs old to participate. Children age 5-6 must have a chaperone on a 1-2 ratio. Ages 7-9 require a participating adult on the yellow course for supervision. If your child is of age but under 5 feet tall, they need a participant who is at least 5 feet tall to be on the course with them (does not have to be parent). If your child does not have an able participant to accompany them on the course, you will need to “hire a buddy” to go along with your children. This is by RESERVATION ONLY at a rate of $39 (for up to 2 children).

Are reservations required?

We strongly suggest reservations during peak visitation months (March, July, & August). Walk-ins are a first come first serve basis. However, reservations have priority.

Do I need to be in good shape?

The courses are designed to be a challenge mentally and physically. Although the courses vary in difficulty levels, those who exercise regularly and are in good physical and mental condition are more likely to enjoy the challenge-course experience. Upper body strength is recommended. The courses are rated by the colors green, yellow, and red. The green courses are going to be for newbies, children, and those scared of heights. Once you get comfortable and accustomed to the course, climbers may want to try a more challenging course such as yellow and red. There are always adventure guides available to assist, but they are not there to lead climbers through the course.

What do I wear?

We recommend wearing clothing that will be comfortable under a harness. Shorts that come down to at least mid thigh will be the most comfortable. We require close-toed athletic shoes. Rental shoes are available at CBAA for $5 (including clean socks) if you do not have shoes of your own. Long hair must be pulled back to a low ponytail. Necklaces and jewelry are not recommended on the course. Its best to apply sunblock prior to putting on your harness. Sunblock will be available for purchase at CBAA if needed.

Can I take my camera or phone on the course?

No, we do not allow participants to carry anything in their pockets. If your phone, camera, car keys or wallet were to fall, they could hit other participants resulting in injury. All of the above should be left with a spectator, or in your car. Car keys may be left in the building and the front desk key-check.

Do I tip the guides?

While it is customary to tip the guides for their services, it is not mandatory.

Can I purchase gift certificates? T-shirts? Souvenirs?

Yes, you may purchase all of the above at our retail store in the registration building.
