The newest and most exciting ‘aerial adventure park’ in Connecticut. Traverse six adventure trails crafted through nine acres of beautiful woodland. Our trails start on one centrally located platform where you can choose a path suited for your skill level. The challenge levels are (2 yellow, 2 green, 1 blue, 1 black). Long zip lines will bring you to ground level at the end of trails and will also zigzag across the pond. All obstacles are self-guided experiences. Our passive gravity braking system eliminates the need for “hand-braking” or “catchers” at each platform. No need to wait for staff, you are free to enjoy your adventure at your own pace.
