At Terrapin Adventures, you can fly across the sky like Superman, scale a wall like Batman, or hang suspended on a web, Spiderman style.

The new adventure park in Savage Mill includes a 330-foot-long zip line ($15), a 43-foot-tall climbing tower ($35), and a 40-foot-high, three-level ropes challenge ($49).

At $10, it’s the most bang for your buck.
