The zipline adventure park is under construction in Roxbury and reportedly will be open for business late Spring 2019.
The outdoor adventure park, as approved in 2012, will have a number of “adventure venues” including zip-lines, obstacle courses and other features “mounted on trees near the tree canopy,” according to township records.
The course is being built on the hilly, tree-filled land to the west of Mount Arlington Road between Route 46 and Howard Boulevard.
According to NAI James E. Hanson, a commercial real estate firm, it arranged the sale of two parcels of land totaling 48 acres that have been approved for a zip line adventure park located at Mount Arlington Road and 1233 Route 46 in the Ledgewood section of Roxbury Township.
NAI James E. Hanson’s John J. Schilp represented the seller, Darl Enterprises, LLC, in the sale to Flagstaff Extreme, LLC.
Flagstaff Extreme is an extreme adventure course located in Flagstaff, Arizona. The Arizona based buyer has similar parks throughout the mid-west and was looking to expand their operations into the northeast.
The two vacant land parcels were listed separately with the option to purchase together. The smaller of the two parcels, at .17 acres, offers high visibility frontage on Route 46. The larger parcel, at 48 acres, is heavily wooded with steep slopes, and has already been approved for a zip line recreation park. The parcels are conveniently located between Routes 80, 46 and 10 and offer a prime location less than an hour from New York City.
“The prior approval for this land to be converted into a zip line recreation park provided us with a unique selling proposition,” said Schilp. “We were able to leverage the location and strong demographics surrounding the area, in addition to the pre-approval, to attract a buyer that could envision the future success of this type of attraction in this market.”
