A massive aerial course opens in southeast Wisconsin this weekend.

There are 20 ziplines, a nine-treetop obstacle course, more than 100 rope bridges and three leaps of faith spreading across 6 acres in Bristol Woods Park in Kenosha County.

Boundless Adventures Operations Manager Kait Miller said this is the only park like it in the Midwest.

"We have different challenges. There's different action elements, the zooming between the trees. It's really exciting," said Miller.

The park is family friendly. Kids as young as 7 are invited. It's also a place for thrillseekers. There are four levels, from beginner to expert.

There are fewer than 20 parks like this in the country. County Supervisor Monica Yuhas thinks the location is perfect.

"It's going to be such a draw for people to come out and explore Bristol Woods plus also take advantage of the park," said Yuhas.

She believes visitors will like what they see.

"To see it on paper and then to see it throughout the stages come to life, it's very impressive," said Yuhas.

The company running the park prides itself in keeping the course environmentally friendly.

"What wood does is absorb other wood, so we make sure to use metal so they can grow with the tree," said Miller.

"It is a giant jungle gym in the trees. It is so much fun," said Miller.

There are paths on the ground for spectators who don't want to participate.
