Spring is finally making its presence known in the Pittsburgh area. Unfortunately that means lion/lamb fluctuations throughout March followed by a healthy dose of April showers. But the change is in the air and lots of us are developing cabin fever. Luckily, the new Sky Trail Ropes Course at Pittsburgh Mills is opening just in time.
Opening early next month in the mall’s food court, the Sky Trail promises indoor adventure for the whole family. There’s the full-size rope course for anyone at least 48 inches tall and the Sky Tykes Ropes Course for kids under 48 inches. The full-size course costs $14 and the Tykes course costs $7, but it looks like it’ll be worth the money (there’s also a group rate for parties of at least 10 people). The attraction will be open 10 a.m-9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sundays.
Just what does the ropes course consist of? Well, the full size course is 32 feet high and includes rope bridges, a roughly 70-foot long zip line, and more. But don’t be scared: participants wear a harness and there are professionals on hand to supervise.
The grand opening date isn’t set yet, so we’ll be chomping at the bit a little while longer, but sometime after Easter, the adventure begins!
If you’re looking for some more immediate indoor fun (it could be getting colder this weekend), South Hills Village Mall, at the opposite end of the city from Pittsburgh Mills, is celebrating its completed renovations with a Macy’s fashion show, free makeovers, and more this weekend.
