Aerial Adventures Await at Soarin' Indoors

When it opened a few years ago in what was once a Manchester warehouse, Soarin’ Indoors became New England’s first indoor aerial adventure park, and today, this Hartford-area attraction continues to provide young thrill-seekers with opportunities to overcome their fears and defy physical limitations, while having a fantastic time. If your children have outgrown bouncy houses and inflatable slides, or just need a break from them, head to Soarin', one of Connecticut's many Indoor Playspaces and Fun Zones. The experience will engage their agility, balance, strength, and endurance, and most of all, leave them with beaming smiles ignited by personal accomplishment.

Whether you bring the whole family or make it a date night, grab your dancing shoes or just grab a blanket, pack a picnic, and enjoy some blues, jazz, bluegrass, rock 'n roll, or pop music!
