An operator of zip line parks has acquired two vacant parcels spanning 48 acres in Morris County, paving the way for its expansion into the Northeast.
Real estate services firm NAI James E. Hanson said it brokered the sale of the two sites in the Ledgewood section of Roxbury Township. Flagstaff Extreme LLC purchased the properties at Mount Arlington Road and 1233 Route 46, which were preapproved for the new zip line course.
NAI Hanson’s John J. Schilp represented the seller, Darl Enterprises LLC, noting that the two parcels were listed separately with the option to purchase together.
“The prior approval for this land to be converted into a zip line recreation park provided us with a unique selling proposition,” Schilp said. “We were able to leverage the location and strong demographics surrounding the area, in addition to the preapproval, to attract a buyer that could envision the future success of this type of attraction in this market.”
Flagstaff Extreme operates an extreme adventure course in Flagstaff, Arizona, NAI Hanson said. The company has similar parks throughout the Midwest and was looking to expand operations into the Northeast.
Of the two parcels, the larger is heavily wooded with steep slopes, the firm said. The sites are located between Interstate 80 and routes 46 and 10.
