Have you ever watched a monkey make it's way through the trees and wished you could have that same experience? Well, at Adventure Park at Discovery Museum, you can get pretty close!
Adventure Park at Discovery Museum is located in Bridgeport, Connecticut, has a whopping 11 "treetop trails" that kids can tackle, which consist of about 180 platforms installed through all of the trees, and connected by cables, ropes and wood which form "crossings".
Don't worry parents, it's safe! All of the climbers wear safety harnesses which will take them through all of the courses safely.
When you arrive, everyone will receive an orientation in what to expect, and how to take on the course safely. Then, you're off! All of the trails are designed for self-discovery, so you don't need lessons, you just trail it for yourselves! It's the best way to learn!
The great thing about Adventure Park at Discovery Museum is that the trails are color coded, which means that you will be able to pick what is perfect for you based on the color which represents difficult.
Anyone from the age of 5 is able to challenge themselves. Those aged 5 and 6 can use the purple course with the supervision of an adult...and from then on kids it's all up to you!
The courses are also designed for everyone's ability, from beginner to experienced. You can just climb at your own pace. Then, as you conquer a course, you can move up to something a bit more difficult. The harder courses require you to have more balance, focus and agility.
Adventure Park is 5 acres of family fun, so why not challenge yourself and see if you can complete the course in record time!
Have a great time all future Tarzan and Janes of the jungle!
