0

Let’s climb! Adventure awaits you at Adventure Park at Storrs, Connecticut.

Are you ready for the best climbing and zip lines Connecticut has to offer? Adventure Park provides family fun for ages 7 and up. This aerial forest adventure is fun, exciting, and safe for all participants. The park provides a harness and equipment and gives you a safety briefing that demonstrates how to climb and zip line. There are 7 separate trails of varying levels of difficulty. Each trail has at least 2 zip lines but primarily consists of “bridges” between tree platforms made of rope, cable, and wood configurations, creating over 80 unique challenges. You will develop skills, endurance, and confidence during your time in the park. Trained Adventure Park staff members monitor the park and are there to assist if needed. Adventure Park is conveniently located 25 minutes from Hartford and 5 minutes from the UConn campus.

Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum - Family Fun

0

Adventure awaits you here in the trees at Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum!  

Are you ready for the best climbing and zip line Connecticut has to offer? Adventure Park’s 11 “treetop trails” consist of about 180 platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form “crossings” of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Climbers wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the park’s own “always locked on” climbing system of interlocking carabineers (coupling links). Before venturing onto the trails, climbers receive a thorough orientation. Trails are designed for self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Park Monitors are always available for questions or assistance. The aerial trails at Adventure Park are color-coded and welcome challenge levels from age five through adult. In short, there is something for just about everyone who wants to climb and zip through the trees!
