You might recall our recount of our experience at an adult obstacle course in Ocoee late last year. We’re a sucker for these adult playground experiences, so when we recently had the opportunity to go meet up with some folks at Planet Obstacle in Lake Mary we jumped (you just know it had to happen) at the opportunity.
Touted as the “world’s largest indoor obstacle park,” Planet Obstacle is located in an industrial park just a few blocks off of the Lake Mary exit off of I-4. It’s a little inconspicuous–actually, a lot inconspicuous–if one doesn’t know what they’re looking for, but once you’ve been able to locate it and head through the front door, you’re confronted with a humungous warehouse of obstacles and challenges. A BIG PLAYGROUND FOR ADVENTURERS OF ALL AGES.
Like we said, the space is humungous and the obstacles plentiful. We didn’t get too many shots of the actual space because we didn’t want to chance taking the phone in and either losing it or having it get damaged. That said, here are a couple of shots of the interior once guests enter the building:
One of the things I enjoyed most about this particular place is the vast openness of the space. While it wasn’t overly crowded to begin with at this time, even if it were it wouldn’t feel like people were on top of each other or stepping over each other to get where they’re wanting to go. Nobody wants to be at the end of their rope (aaand there’s another one) in a place like this! Along with that, guests are given time windows of when they can head to the “larger” obstacles, thereby preventing big crowds or backups at every location.
A few of my faves were:
- Two-level Aerial Ropes Course with 220 feet long Zip-line. I won’t necessarily say this was a beast by any means, but it was most certainly a challenge. Being two stories up–although being clipped in to a support line–can be a little daunting.
- Adults Ninja Warrior Course.This is the section that was the most challenging. Sure, you’ve watched American Ninja Warrior on television, and you probably even workout several times a week. But even the most introductory levels of these types of courses can get the best of you…and that’s exactly what happened on this visit.
- Trampoline Park.Our group didn’t spend too much time in this area but large-area trampolines are always a ton of fun.
These are just three of the things we had the time to experience on this evening. But Planet Obstacle has so, so, so much more to offer: Bumper cars, rock-climbing walls (really want to do these), foam pits, and a dodgeball area…among others.
For an even deeper look at some of the experiences waiting to be had check out the Planet Obstacle Instagram.
And after all this, or even during, if you need a little break there’s a cafe that offers food and drink – yes, even adult beverages.
Take a look at this video that provides a great overview of what you can experience at Planet Obstacle:
