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! Group reservations welcome 7 days a week.

We went on opening weekend and had a great experience. The staff are really friendly and helpful. Were able to do several courses with 2 boys, aged 9 and 11. Challenge level kept building up and we all had a lot of fun. Some sore muscles the day after but many smiles all around!

This is a neat place, especially for the Bridgeport area. It is a complete outdoor ropes course and it even has a 3 level section for smaller kids. I took my two little girls, 4 and 6, to a 6 year old's birthday party in the small kids section, and it was great for them.
