Adventure Park at Storrs, CT Reopens For 2015 Season on April 18 - Adding New Aerial Trails

April 16, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
April 16, 2015 - The Adventure Park at Storrs, the second aerial forest adventure park in Connecticut, which debuted in 2013, will open for its third season on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 10:00 AM. It will continue operating on its spring general admissions schedule of weekends until June 12 when it will be open seven days a week for its summer schedule.

Located on four forest acres at 2007 Storrs Road in Storrs, just minutes from the University of Connecticut (UCONN) Campus, The Adventure Park provides zip line thrills and tree-to-tree climbing fun for kids, teens, adults and groups, ranging from age seven through active seniors.

New for the 2015 season will be the addition of two more aerial trails, which will bring the Park's total to seven. The color-coded trails provide climbers with a choice, ranging from introductory trails (yellow) through to the most advanced trail (black.) In between are green and blue trails for intermediate challenges. The selection makes it possible for friends and family of varied experience and abilities to have fun climbing and zip lining together.

Adventure Park climbers all wear harnesses that are doubly secured to safety cables using the Park's own "always locked on" climbing system of interlocking carabineers (coupling links). Before venturing onto the trails climbers receive a thorough orientation. Trails are designed for self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Park Guides are always available for questions or assistance.

For those who choose not to climb but want to share the experience with friends or family who are climbing, The Adventure Park offers beautiful forest paths and picnic tables. Admission for non-climbers is free of charge.

A campground for overnight stays of approved youth groups, such as Boy or Girl Scouts, is also available when combined with the group's climbing reservation.

Adventure Park GENERAL ADMISSION HOURS Spring & Fall Season: Saturdays, Sundays and holidays 10:00 AM 8:00 PM. Summer Season, starting June 12: Open seven days a week. Hours and pricing click here. Group reservations are available spring, summer and fall seven days a week (two weeks advance arrangements preferred.)

The Adventure Park at Storrs is designed, built and operated by Outdoor Ventures. For further information and details visit, email or call (860)-946-0606.
