We know it can be difficult to constantly come up with new and exciting ways to enjoy your time here on planet earth, and more specifically Western New York, so we’re doing the work for you. Every Wednesday this year we’ll publish a new Buffalo Bucket List Challenge post with a fun / interesting / exciting / unique “task” to try.

Where to Eat: Enjoy a big, juicy burger with a side of zucchini fries served with parm and warm marinara dip after you fly through the trees.  You earned this meal! The ropes courses are harder than they look!
