Lehigh Valley’s First High Ropes Course Receives Zoning Approval

Williams Township, PA- On February 23, 2022, the owner and operator of Lehigh Valley Grand Prix received zoning approval to develop a high ropes course through a unanimous vote by the Williams Township Zoning Hearing Board. The course will be built on a 4-acre lot located off Interstate 78 in Williams Township. Set to open in Spring of 2023, the operation will be the first of its kind in the Lehigh Valley. The outdoor venue plans to partner with unique food and beverage providers, including an on-site brewery and will host live music and entertainment. With ropes reaching heights of 65 feet, the course will be one of the largest operations in the United States. The course will have the capacity for up to 150 guests and is expected to create approximately 30-40 new job opportunities. The project is led by Michael McCreary, owner of Lehigh Valley Grand Prix in Allentown. McCreary has operated the racetrack for over ten years and says the inspiration for the new high ropes course resulted from the pandemic. “My family loves the outdoors! The one silver lining from the COVID -19 experience is that it taught a lot of people that they love to be outdoors as well,” said McCreary. “We want to encourage people to get off technology, enjoy experiences together, and push their comfort boundaries.” To cater to all ages and experience levels, the course will encompass multiple levels of difficulty. Group outings will be encouraged, as the outdoor park will have additional space to accommodate family gatherings, corporate events, and parties. Preliminary plans show the course opening in the spring of 2023. McCreary is in the process of finalizing food and beverage vendors, including a select brewery to provide services on-site full time.
