About The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum
The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum is Connecticut's first tree top climbing and ziplining park. Look up-You will see a series of platforms in the trees connected by various configurations of cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. Each bridge presents a different challenge of how to get to the next platform. A series of bridges form "aerial trails" that proceed throughout the forest, from one tree platform to the next. There are eight different trails to choose from that you can enjoy at your own pace.FALL HOURS ('till Nov 11): Fri 3pm-9pm, Sat 9am-9pm, Sun & holidays: 9am-Dusk. Illuminated Night Climbing Fri-Sat!

Enjoyed over two hours of (safe) fun in the trees yesterday. I grew up with a zip line in my backyard 45 years ago, and this one brought a lot of those thrills back. We were totally sore from moving new muscle groups and laughing...More

Great climbing, as always. Ask questions if needed, if the first person doesn’t give you the answer you need, look for someone who knows what they are talking about. Climb with your kid if possible. Send walkie talkies with your kids if you’re not climbing...More

Not really. There are areas to sit and watch the kids climb and Zipline. There is a small shop to buy a soda and have a drink while you watch.
