To Our Forge Family,


On behalf of The Forge: Lemont Quarries team, we hope you and your loved ones are doing well.  We want to take a moment to update you on our plans to operate safely and responsibly during these unprecedented times.


The health, well-being, and safety of our guests and team members will always be our number one priority at The Forge: Lemont Quarries Adventure Park. That is why we are taking extraordinary steps to provide peace of mind when visiting us.

While we always strive to create an environment that offers access to engaging outdoor recreational activities for all ages and abilities, we are committed to doing so in accordance with the best practices and safety guidelines adopted by the outdoor recreation industry as well as guidelines presented by the state of Illinois and the CDC. This is to ensure that guests can confidently and safely join us in spending time outdoors.


We plan to open this summer, implementing safety policies and practices we have developed in conjunction with other outdoor recreation operators, while also utilizing the safety guidelines put forth at the state and federal levels.  In accordance with these elements, we are committed to the following evidence-based strategies to keep our guests healthy while visiting the park:

  • Adhering to Physical Distancing Guidelines

  • Using Protective Personal Equipment at all times

  • Practicing proper Hygiene & Sanitation

  • Disinfecting Common and High-Traffic Areas


Applying the above benchmark strategies as a guide, our team at The Forge: Lemont Quarries is implementing an amended Covid-19 operational plan. Please refer to this page for a summary overview of our policies and procedures.

We know that these are extraordinary times. Our mission has always been to Exhilarate, Educate, and Entertain adventurers of every age and ability, and we remain committed to doing so while keeping our community safe and comfortable as we navigate this new normal together. 


Stay well. Stay healthy. And we’ll see you at The Forge: Lemont Quarries soon.

Your fellow adventurers,

Jeremie Bacon, Chris Gladwin & Bart Loethen
