Known as Geronimo Adventure Park, the secluded green space is owned and operated by friends and business partners Monica Snideman and Charity Adams, who opened the business in October 2020.
“We both have four kids, and we really wanted to do something that gets us outside, involves our kids, is good for the community and gets people off their devices. So we started brainstorming,” Snideman said.
With the help of their children, the pair narrowed down their search to the aerial park industry and attended an industrywide conference where they learned of a similar concept—Texas TreeVentures—that had just opened in The Woodlands.
“We were devastated,” Snideman said. “But then another person was like, ‘You should really focus on zip lines because that’s where it’s at.’ So we pivoted.”
After looking at roughly 30 properties, Adams and Snideman said they found the one.
“It’s right in the heart of Spring, which you cannot find this much property with this many trees here; you normally have to go to Magnolia or Conroe for that,” Snideman said. “We just felt like it was a hidden jewel.”
Named for the leap of faith Snideman said she and Adams took when pursuing their new business venture, Geronimo Adventure Park offers three zip-lining sky trails, ax throwing, rock climbing and a ninja course, among other outdoor amenities.
“[Geronimo] just kind of embodies that whole feeling of exhilaration when you take that step into the void, so it kind of captures the spirit of [the business] for us,” Snideman said.
While the park is open year-round and hosts individuals as well as groups—including birthday parties and team-building events—it also hosted its first summer camp this year with plans to expand the program next summer.
Most recently, the park added electricity, which Snideman said gives patrons access to an air-conditioned welcome center and gift shop as well as restrooms with running water. The duo is also hoping to add more ax-throwing cages in the future.
In the two years since Geronimo Adventure Park opened, Snideman said the one thing that never gets old is witnessing the joy of patrons as they conquer their fears.
“It just fills me up,” Snideman said.
