Unique Outdoor Adventures at GoFAR USA Park

I can’t say enough good things about my first time visiting GoFAR USA Park.

This business is truly a family venture of Patrick and Emily Fagerman with their kids who also work at the park.

Patrick’s energy is contagious and I wish we could figure out a way to bottle it.

He’s also a visionary who is always dreaming up ways to add more fun to the existing park. I have no doubt that there will be even more unique and fun things to do at GoFar USA Park in the coming years.

The most challenging part might be deciding which outdoor activity you want to try first.

Things to Do at GoFAR USA

climbing wall at GoFAR USA Park

Climbing Wall

My first adventure at the park was on the 24 ft climbing wall. The climbing wall has a self-belaying system that gradually takes you back to the ground.

If you want to reach the top, the key is to keep climbing and try not to stop on the way up.

I was SO CLOSE to the top and I ran out of energy and a good grip once I paused for a few moments trying to find better footing.

There is a smaller climbing wall that doesn’t require a harness if you want to practice before trying the big wall.

Kids will love climbing on the other elements next to the smaller climbing wall too.

Electric Off Road Scooters at GoFAR USA Park

Electric Off Road Scooters

Thrill-seekers will want to add on an Electric Scooter Rental during their visit.

Before you are turned loose on the trail you are given safety instructions and each person goes a short distance to get a feel for the off road electric scooter.

The trail through the woods is really scenic and there are even a few small bridges to cross to add an additional challenge.

Off-road electric scooter riders must be at least 12 years old and physically qualified for the 15-minute riding adventure.

My dad, who was 73 at the time of our visit, did great on the off-road scooter. He got the hang of it quickly and didn’t fall off on the trail making this a fun multi-gen adventure.

Electric Trail Boarding at GoFAR USA Park

Electric Trail Boarding

If you are an experienced skateboarder or a snowboarder, this is the experience for you!

Electric Mountain Boarding for those who love to push their limits. The rider must be at least 14 years old and physically qualified for the 15-minute riding adventure.

It looks like I know what I’m doing on the electric trail board but this was clearly a staged pic.

I did try it while leaning on the owner’s arm for additional stability. It takes a little while to get used to controlling the throttle of your speed with the handheld remote.

I watched the owner’s kids whiz through the woods on the mountainboards with ease. They made it look easy and effortless… but it’s definitely not if you are a newbie without previous skateboarding skills.

zipline at GoFAR USA Park


The ziplines at GoFAR are at a lower height than a typical zipline canopy tour. This is so that you can have more turns in a shorter amount of time and younger ages.

There is a harness available for guests who would feel more comfortable with an additional layer of safety.

I decided that this one would be better modeled by the owners’ kids.

They once again made extremely challenging obstacles appear to be relatively easy to overcome.
