Zip Lining at the Adventure Park in Connecticut

The Adventure Park in Connecticut

A few weekends ago we spent a few really fun hours at The Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, CT.

This park really isn’t just about zip lining. The aerial adventure forest offers 180 platforms in the trees that are connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form bridges and zip lines.

Friends of ours invited us to check it our with our sons. They had been there before and figured the boys would love spending time there together.

I’m terrified of heights, so I had no desire to go on the aerial forest, but Don and L were up for the challenge, and I had a great time taking pictures of them.

After getting all the proper gear put on them, it was time to learn how to use the aerial adventure forest safely. There is a lot to learn, actually.

029Don and L practiced “tweezling” and then started with the easiest trail. There are 11 trails in total, for ages 7 to adult, with challenge levels suitable for every age and skill level.

The easiest trail is not that high in the air, but even that one I would’ve been screaming on like a little girl.

Off they went, and they had the best time. The boys were faster than the adults, actually.

I was pretty proud to see how adventurous L was. He had so much fun. It’s quite the workout to walk on those tricky ropes and moving wood pieces.

The boys couldn’t get enough and climbed around for about three hours, with the adults trying to keep up.

This is one of the highest course for adults — isn’t it crazy?

That’s a “surfboard” in the sky you zip to the next tree on.

If you have the chance to experience The Adventure Park in Connecticut, take your kids for sure. It’s hours of family fun.
