Where are we going today?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No....it's those excitable and active kids over 7 years having the time of their life taking on a treetop adventure at Adventure Park at Storrs!

This fun Connecticut adventure playground is perfect for the family to challenge themselves, keep healthy and fit AND have a great time trying to tackle the treetop adventure that is waiting for them!

Adventure Park at Storrs is an aerial forest adventure which is fun, exciting, and most importantly safe for the whole family.

They provide you with the harness and the equipment, as well as a safety talk, so all you need to do is come with a great attitude and lots of energy! The park have 5 seperate trails - each of a different level of difficulty. Each of the trails have 2 zip lines, as well as a host of "bridges" which will take you between tree platforms.

The bridges are made up of wood, cable, rope...which will certainly build confidence as you make your way across each one!

Adventure Park at Storrs is great for kids as the course builds their confidence, they develop skills, and builds their endurance. There are always staff members on duty keeping an eye out so you don't have to worry if you haven't done this kind of challenge before.

Start with a low difficulty course and work your way up...it's amazing to see the progression and the smiles when kids realize they can complete a course that they once couldn't!

If you want something a bit more special, then check out their evening sessions where you can climb through the LED lit forest - you have just enough light to climb, but you can still really enjoy the magic of the forest!

Adventure fun for everyone at Adventure Park at Storrs! Let's get climbing!

    I went with my family of 9. They ranged from 12 to 50+. Everyone had an amazing time. We were able to do 4 courses each. The course are some much fun. We went on 7/5 and with painted faces for the fourth got in at half price. A must go to Adventure. The staff was courteous and informative. They were available for help if you are unsure of how to approach an obstacle. Great time for all.

    Awesome time. They have different courses requiring different strength and agility levels. Went with a small group of varying age and skill levels (ages 15 to 50). We all had fun doing the courses that we felt comfortable with. The equipment is first rate and everyone felt comfortable and secure. If I had to say a negative it would be that they need some add on services to round out the day. We were all done by noon and nothing left to do but go home. Maybe add a mini golf, bike/hiking paths, a snack bar, an area to have a picnic lunch with some...Read More

    With the groupon price of $22 a person then the further discount of 10% off that price it was magical. Three hours is perfect because fatigue begins to set in around that time and I recommend doing it at night.

    We went with kids aged 14, 14, 12, and 9. The oldest could do every course by themselves. I had to accompany the youngest two. There are five courses of four degrees of difficulty. We first tried the harder of the two green courses, and it was surprisingly challenging. In two hours the kids each did four courses. Everybody was very happy and had a good workout. There's a lot of climbing, balance, and strength used to complete the courses. This is a great outing, especially for anybody athletic. The equipment is fantastic. You can go at...Read More

Maybe add a mini golf, bike/hiking paths, a snack bar, an area to have a picnic lunch with some hammocks to rest in. Something like that and it would make for a full day adventure. Maybe they will expand it in the future.

There's a lot of climbing, balance, and strength used to complete the courses. This is a great outing, especially for anybody athletic. The equipment is fantastic. You can go at your own pace; no guides needed, unlike other ziplines I've done. There's a very happy feeling to arrive at the top of a zipline and have the roller on your belt. The clip system requires that one of two clips be attached at all times. One clip won't open until the second has been locked to a cable and "tweezled" using a special fitting on the cable. There's no way to make a mistake with the safety clips. The harnesses are as safe as can be. You still need to be careful because if you slam into something or crash into somebody you could get hurt. But falling to the ground seems impossible.
