Best of Washington: Best Superman Imitation


See more from the Best of Washington

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). The ropes course includes precarious log and tightrope crossings, but you’re connected by a harness to a safety line. Don’t miss the Giant Swing, with 2Gs of acceleration. At $10, it’s the most bang for your buck.
