Challenge Course FAQs

Where are we located?

1008 Amity St. – Homestead PA 15120

Where can I park when I visit?

There is street parking available directly in front of the church that visitors may use. You may also park in the parking lot directly behind the church, accessible via E Park Way, when Propel Schools-Homestead is not in session. All of these parking options are free. Thank you to Propel for allowing us to use their parking lot!

Can adults do the course?

Of course! Half of our lower course is available to all ages 5 and up, and the entire upper course is for all ages 10 and up.

If I do the upper course, can I also try the Zip Line?

Yes, a trip down our 160-foot Zip Line is included in every Soaring Dragons upper course purchase.

I won’t be doing the course today, but if I have purchased a ticket for my child, do I have to pay for a ticket to come in with them to watch?

In order to help support our community programming, a $5 Non-Rider Fee is charged for any adult spectator or other individuals not participating on the challenge course. Children under the age of 5 are not subject to this fee.

Do I have to be on the course with my child?

You do not have to be on the course with your child. Our trained staff will be positioned throughout the upper course and on the ground to assist course participants. For children on the lower course, you will be able to walk alongside them from the ground as they make their way through the course.

What are the differences between the upper and lower courses?

Floating Dragons (lower course) consists of 25 elements, 14 of which are specifically for participants aged 5-9. Anyone wishing to brave the Soaring Dragons upper course must be at least 10 years old and over 55 inches tall. Further height, weight, and age requirements are found below.
