Located on five wooded acres by the Fairfield/Bridgeport line at 4450 Park Avenue in Bridgeport, Connecticut, behind the Discovery Museum. (One mile off Exit 47 Merritt Parkway.) Appealing to outdoor fun-seekers age 5 through adult, the Adventure Park features multiple zip lines and aerial ropes challenge courses for hours of "fun in the trees." Suitable challenges for kids, teens and adults.

The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum consists of eleven different “ropes courses” through the trees, of varying challenge levels, from introductory to advanced. The self-guided courses do not require previous climbing experience. After receiving a safety briefing and harness, each climber selects a course at their comfort level and then proceeds to navigate its different “bridges” or “elements” moving from tree platform to tree platform. The courses include zip lines as well. Climbers proceed at their own pace and each course requires anywhere from approximately 15 – 30 minutes to complete. Upon completion of one course the visitor may again ascend the starting platform and select another course. Generally, a climbing ticket entitles the visitor to unlimited climbs during a three-hour period. Park staff members are continually on-site and available for assistance or questions.

All climbers wear safety harnesses that employ “double-clipped-on” technology to help keep the climber continuously connected to a safety cable throughout their time in the trees. The courses are designed for ages five and older, with appropriate challenges suited for kids, teens and adults. (Five- and six-year-olds are permitted to climb on our Purple courses only and are each required to have an adult climbing with them. One adult per child.)

  • SO MUCH FUN! Staff is incredibly nice and will literally walk you through on how to get through an obstacle if you think you can't do it. Gets VERY challenging. Pricey but worth every penny. They also have free water stations!
  • Our family loves this. Ages for us range fro 8 to 42 years old. Physically challenging and so much fun.
