About Outdoor Ventures

The Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum is an 'aerial forest park' perfect for ages 5 to adult. It is located on 4 acres and consists of over 120 platforms installed in trees and connected by various configurations of wood and rope to form bridges and zip lines. Groups of these bridges or 'elements' link together to form separate courses through the trees. Although every course has zip lines on them, there is much more fun than just zip lining to be had! There are 12 trails in total with challenge levels suitable for every age and skill level--from beginner to expert. Each person selects trail(s) they want and climbs at their own pace.
