What You'll Get

Walls are masochistic creatures, practically begging to be walked all over, pricked with thumbtacks, or pummeled with jai alai balls. Give the wall what it wants with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a Terrapin Tower climbing adventure package (a $35 value) from Terrapin Adventures, located in Savage, Maryland, less than 45 minutes northeast of DC.

Terrapin Adventures offers an array of activities for indoorsfolk seeking enthralling outdoor expeditions. With the Terrapin Tower adventure package, guests get two hours of climbing time, with a climbing lesson and climbing equipment included, on Terrapin Adventures' 43-foot-high outdoor climbing tower. The four-sided tower serves up a dozen different ascents, with a canopied platform at the tower's pinnacle offering a peaceful view of the Little Patuxent River and its ghosts of Revolutionary War–era extreme sportsmen. Terrapin Tower allows scalers of all skill sets to conquer the edifice with ease. The tower offers flat routes, overhang routes, and cargo nets for a variety of scaling surfaces, and climbers can simulate the digestive process of a timber rattlesnake by descending the tower headfirst through the stretchy Rainbow Serpent tube net.

Terrapin Adventures' excursions are led by globetrotting guides, who bring climbing expertise, environmental awareness, and first aid training to their instruction and supervision. Lace up close-toed shoes, corral long hair with the lasso of a scrunchie, and empty pockets of cell phones, wallets, and rare Mayan currency before discovering the power of perpendicularity with Terrapin Adventures.

All climbers must be at least eight years old, 48 inches tall, and weigh 70–275 pounds.

About Terrapin Adventures

Terrapin Adventures never fails to live up to its name—even their swing set gets the stomach fluttering with excitement. To be fair, though, the swing in question is anything but the traditional apparatus you'd find at a city park. It seats three people and starts its trajectory 40 feet above the ground, generating 2 Gs of adrenaline as it swishes riders back and forth over the landscape. The park's other attractions are equally exhilarating. On the high ropes course, visitors attached to sturdy safety harnesses cross 18 traverses situated between lofty platforms; some must be tackled via a rickety bridge, while others require leaps of faith. The 43-foot high climbing tower offers 10 routes up and down, including a head-first downward climb over the Rainbow Serpent. Otherwise, the 330-foot-long zipline sends visitors gliding through the treetops at speeds of up to 20 mph, fast enough to beat the USA track team's star squirrel.
