Family fun in the trees? Why not!

Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium is a great way for those active little ones over 5 years and the family to have a great adventure and taking on a challenge...in the tree tops!

This super fun aerial forest park awaits (the first of it's kind in Virginia!) where you will be welcomed by a series of platforms all in the trees, that are connected by rope, wood and cable, as well as zip lines. These are your bridges to get you across from tree to tree!

Each bridge presents you with a different challenge, that you have to complete in order to finish the course. Then, you can move onto one slightly more difficult!

You don't have to be experienced to take on these trails. Each one is color-coded to it's own degree of difficulty, so you can pick which one suits you the best. They start from beginner (these ones are low to the ground and easier), then they move through intermediate, to advanced (the toughest!)

It's a great confidence booster when kids realize they are getting better and better, moving up the degrees of difficulty. The trails at Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium are also a great way for those active kids to build confidence, build strength, coordination and balance.

The whole family can get involved too, and you can climb together!

Why not spend the day outdoors in nature, work at your own pace, and then feel great at what you've accomplished.

Sounds great to us! Let's get climbing!

    It is not a zip line park. Do not confuse this with GO APE. GO APE is a zipline park. With that being said. The is a lot of fun for the family. There are all different difficulty levels to challenge all who dare and try this course. They teach you how to use the equipment and then turn you loose. Its a lot of fun , now if your wondering what it is, the best thing is to stop by one day and check it out.

However best described as an obstacle course in the trees and you use a repelling line to get down. Dont think of this as a typical repelling line. You hook up on it and then Jump and it lowers you down slowly to the ground.
