Adventure Zones
Get ready to climb with us in our climbing rooms!
In the adventure zones we have two spaces: Adventure Zone 1 for ages 8 and up (or 50-300lbs) and Adventure Zone 2 suggested for kids ages 5-12.
In Adventure Zone 1, we have ten automatic belay systems where you will be able to clip in to one of our harnesses provided and climb a route of your choice. Some walls are easy while some are more advanced, so choose wisely! 
In Adventure Zone 2, kids can climb up a cargo net to experience a playground in the air. Then, when they are done, they can slide down a great big slide!
For our guests younger than five years old, we offer a host of manipulatives to experience.
All the supplies you will need to climb will be provided for you.  All climbing gear is inspected regularly, and we will always have two staff members monitoring these Adventure Zone spaces because your safety is our number one priority.

Exhibit Hall
Our large main room is an ever changing exhibit hall.  This space will feature different children's exhibits that all will enjoy and leave them curious to see what is around each corner. 

Art Gallery
This space is unique in the fact that its walls are the original flooring from the Smyrna Town Center racket ball courts. On these we will display different pieces of art to show culture, history, and the great times throughout the history of Smyrna.

Gift Shop
The gift shop gives you a chance to take home a little of what you experienced while at the SOAC, but also may provide what you will need for your next adventure within the Smyrna Parks.

Lecture Hall
The lecture hall is a great space to rent for group meetings, adult parties, or even join us for a seminar during your lunch one afternoon.  
The lecture hall has some of the best technology, privacy, and space for many groups to come enjoy and learn.

SOAC programs are geared toward bringing people inside to enjoy the activities, yet also getting them outside to experience any of the parks within the Smyrna Parks System.
