New aerial attraction a soaring experience for kids
Calling all thrill-seekers. Experience a first in North America with Uplå, a new aerial attraction with suspension bridges and trampolines that will make you feel as though you’re bouncing in the clouds.
The installation opened June 4 at the base of Mont Saint-Grégoire, a 45-minute drive south of Montreal.
Presented by Arbraska, Uplå features colourful obstacles — 20 feet up in the air. Surrounded by the tree canopy, adventurers and nature enthusiasts ages 3 and up are invited to explore the heights, bounce, leap, and slide in a playful treetop world of intertwined nets and colourful treehouses.
The site features seven zones where nets hold a two-level trampoline, seven additional linked trampolines, slides, tunnels, secret passages and a lookout. There is also a whimsical village hung in the trees. Kids and adults can travel through a labyrinth connected by suspension bridges, and visit seven tiny houses.
If you’re not a fan of heights, there are also several activities that are installed at ground level.
Fun for the whole family
No special skills or equipment is required, so you can bounce and play with the kids and grandkids.
If you’ve still got energy afterwards, reserve a time at the adjacent Arbraska tree top course where you can continue the adventure on the zip lines and suspension bridges, or visit nearby hiking trails.
Reservations are required and the activity takes about two hours. Bring along a picnic to eat at the tables under the nets, or cross the street to Érablière Charbonneau where a full menu is available.
It is $30 for ages 3-17 and $20 for 18-64. Arbraska tree top and Uplå combo packages will be available soon. See the website for details.
The address is 45 ch. du Sous-Bois, Mont-Saint-Grégoire.
