Judge Orders Heritage Zip Line Adventure Park Shut Down

Rules the attraction was improperly permitted...

A Barnstable Superior Court judge has ruled that, due to improper permitted, Heritage Museums & Gardens must shut down its aerial adventure park.  This ruling comes on the heels of a trial last November and December.  Judge Cornelius Moriarty II issued his ruling today, August 31, 2018.

According to Judge Moriarty's ruling, the park includes seven zip lines and attracted 35,000 customers in 2017.  The projected total for 2018 was 50,000 total climbers.

The Town of Sandwich initially issued the building permit for the attraction and it was upheld by the Zoning Board of Appeals.  The town's action led to a lawsuit filed by neighbors.

According to the judge's ruling the attraction constitutes an unlawful use of the property.  Judge Moriarty has "permanently enjoined" the continued operation of the aerial park by Heritage.
