Monkey Trunks began in June 2008 at the Chocorua location in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The goal was to create an adventure experience that would be fun for all ages. Since then, we’ve grown and expanded, we now have three spectacular locations in New England: Chocorua, NH; Weirs Beach, NH; and Saco, ME. We’re proud to offer high rope and zipline adventure parks for the entire family!



Meet Kris, the Monkey Trunks General Manager. Having grown up in the Mount Washington Valley, he is passionate about getting outdoors. Kris first came to Monkey Trunks as a safety instructor while he was in college. After a lot of hard work and dedication, he played a big role in expanding the business and growing it in two further locations, Weirs Beach and Saco back in 2011. Since then, Kris has become the General Manager. Though his home town is known for its tax free shopping, he has much more interest in getting outdoors to explore the surrounding White Mountains and Mount Washington. Passionate about skiing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, boating, snowmobiling, four wheeling, camping and everything else you can imagine, Kris wants to make sure all monkeys have an unforgettable wilderness adventure at any Monkey Trunks park.

When not at work, Kris spends time with his wife, Tia and their beautiful puppy Bailey (both pictured). Kris and Tia met at high school but reconnected through working at Monkey Trunks. If you can’t find them working at one of our three locations, the chances are pretty high that you’ll find them outdoors. Whether they are skiing at Sugarloaf or out on their boat, be sure to say hi!



Nik, another local and fellow outdoors enthusiast, works alongside Kris to ensure that Monkey Trunks runs smoothly and that all monkeys have an excellent experience. Nik’s interest in ziplining came from working at Monkey Trunks throughout college. For Nik, this is the dream job… he loves working with the whole team while being active, getting outdoors, riding ziplines and getting paid to do so!

Growing up in Madison, Niks’ entire life has been based around getting outside and enjoying nature. He describes childhood as playing sports, adventuring and hanging out with friends until the sun went down. It doesn’t seem like much has changed, you’ll find Nik monkeying around on the courses and making sure everyone is enjoying themselves too. If he’s not around, he will be exploring the Mount Washington Valley, whether he’s hiking, skiing or rock climbing.
