Calling all adventure seekers! Lubbock’s latest attraction will feature so many different activities, you won’t even know which one to do first. This list includes a ropes course, an arcade, bumper boats, go-karts, lazer maze, mini-golf, bumper cars, a zip line, a playground, a mountain bike trail, and last but not least, a rock wall. My personal favorite, the ropes course that stands at three stories tall for you to tackle any fear of heights with tightropes, cross bridges, and over 45 challenges! Adventure Park broke ground August 2016 so keep a look out for Lubbock’s hottest attraction yet!
