Thrills on the hill at new adventure park

In addition to rafting, thrill seekers visiting Clear Creek can now climb a cliff, navigate a towering rope obstacle course or toss themselves head first into a giant transparent hamster wheel and go barreling down a mountainside.

The new attractions are part of the recently opened Lawson Adventure Park, which aims to attract families and people interested in taking their recreation beyond being strapped into a roller-coaster.

Last week the new park had a soft opening as the final touches were put on the grounds and construction began on seven cabins.
