Let's Get Out & Play
We have a variety of activities ranging from laid back to all-out fun.
I've visited The Forge in the autumn, and just this past Friday in the middle of winter for a prix-fixe dinner in a heated globe- and had a blast both times! Beautifully well-maintained outdoor space, which is free to walk around anytime. Free parking, too. You just pay to climb, or for food/drink.
Great place to spend time with friends and\or family. Had a great time with my brother and niece. The staff is great and very attentive to each and every person. Even walking out we had a staff member ask how our day was! There are many different "elements" (types of obstacles). I was wondering if I could make it and I did.
Great place for a birthday party! Kids loved the park and staff were amazing and helpful! The staff were very tentative to keeping the park clean and safe for all of the kids. Amazing fun! I’m a mom and made it through the ropes, zip line and the climbing wall! This is a place for the whole family.
Forgefire Globe Dining experience. This was an adventure. The staff is attentive including the chef! The hot apple cider is delicious! We'll definitely be going again.
