Adventure Awaits You Here In The Trees!
Fun in the great outdoors—There’s nothing like a climb at The Adventure Park at Storrs! Within five beautiful acres of woodland you will find our amazing “aerial forest park.” Experience “adventure in the trees” perfect on your own or with friends, family and parties. Ages seven to adult.
Look up—You’ll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by 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” throughout the forest.
Relax—You don’t have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan! Choose from five different color-coded trails, from “beginner” (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).
Climb with Confidence—You will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb. Our double-connected, “always-locked-on” climbing system helps keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. The trails are intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Our Park Guides are available to assist throughout your visit.
