BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — If you're looking for an outdoor activity that's not the same old thing, something that combines outdoor adventure and lots of action while building strength, awareness and self-confidence, then The Adventure Park in Bridgeport might be for you.
Located within 5 wooded acres behind The Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, The Adventure Park is an “aerial forest ropes park” consisting of 180 platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood, and rope to form bridges and zip lines.
Groups of these bridges, or “elements,” link together to form separate courses though the trees. Although every course has zip lines on them, there is much more fun than just zip-lining to be had.
There are 11 courses in total, for ages 5 to adult, with challenge levels suitable for every age and skill level – from beginner to expert. Each person selects the course they want and climbs at their own pace.
All participants receive a thorough briefing before climbing, and wear safety harnesses clipped to safety cables throughout their time in the trees.
