Looking for an adventure? Thrill-seekers can get their adrenaline rush at “The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum” which is situated on five acres of forestland in Veterans Memorial Park, behind the Discovery Museum & Planetarium in Bridgeport.
The Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum consists of about 110 platforms installed in the trees and connected by various configurations of cable, wood and rope to form bridges and challenges of different kinds including the ever-popular zip lines. Groups of bridges link together to form “aerial trails” throughout the forest. There is a total of 8 different trails to choose from, ranging in difficulty from beginner level to expert.
Trails are suitable for ages seven to adult, making a visit to The Adventure Park a great family outing. Participants wear harnesses which are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park’s own "always locked on" climbing system of interlocking carabineers (coupling links). Park-goers receive a thorough orientation before going on the trails, which are designed for self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Park Guides are always available for questions or assistance.
The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum is operated by the Outdoor Ventures Group, LLC in cooperation with The Discovery Museum.
