– February 2017 / Newsmaker Alert / The
Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake is pleased to announce the addition of
a new attraction on the shores of Lake Erie. Lake Erie Canopy Tours, a
zip line course featuring both a guided canopy tour and a self-guided challenge
course for adults, as well as a kid’s challenge course, will open summer
2017. Located just west of The
Lodge in Geneva State Park
with a spectacular view of Lake Erie, the aerial adventure park is the
result of a unique partnership between Ashtabula
County, Delaware North
and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
The Lake Erie Canopy Tours project will encompass 25 acres of Geneva State Park on property closest to The Lodge. In light of the Lodge’s easy accessibility for visitors from Ohio and nearby states, Ashtabula County expects to see a rise in day trip visitors. Special overnight packages will be offered for those interested in a getaway experience at The Lodge or its adjacent 25 two-bedroom cottages, which were added last year. The cottages have been popular among families and couples, as well as group gatherings from reunions to weddings.
“The addition of Lake Erie Canopy Tours will take the Ohio Wine Country tourism experience to new heights. Those staying overnight at The Lodge will be able to enjoy the many activities available at one of the premier resorts on the shores of Lake Erie,” said Eric Frantz, General Manager, The Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake. “Outdoor enthusiasts from throughout the region will be able to get away from it all without having to drive a great distance to find their next Ohio adventure.”

Construction will begin spring 2017, with a slated completion date of mid-summer 2017, and the attraction will remain open through October. Reservations will be available for mobile and online purchase, and at a staffed welcome center. Watch for details on sunset tours and more.
Lake Erie Canopy Tours will be designed, engineered and constructed by Skyline Ziplines, which has designed and operated world class ziplines, challenge towers and suspension bridges throughout the U.S.
