Went here for a team bonding event and it was a total blast. The instructors are professional, fun, and really know what they're doing. We were all surprised at how easy it was to do simple tricks - like flipping - on our first ever lesson. Just watch the weather carefully, when we went it was 90 degrees and despite tons of water it was super easy to get dehydrated since you're on an exposed rooftop. The Pier 40 location is totally picturesque, but get there a few minutes early, finding the right staircase is a little tricky!


If you've ever pictured yourself flying across the city, here is your chance! The Trapeze School of New York is a great, fun place to try trapeze for the first time. I had a private group session scheduled with clients, and it was an awesome, different type of group activity. During your first time, each person will have a few chances to swing, put their legs up on the bar and then try to catch onto another person! The staff are EXTREMELY nice and fun, and I always felt safe!! The trapeze school is located all the way West and has a great view of the Freedom Tower. You can also see the Empire State Building, and we lucked out with a great sunset. Getting there can be a bit confusing, but once you get to the turf fields, you have to walk upstairs or take the elevator and then walk past a parking lot.
