The Adventure Park

  • Hold On For Adventure

    Kids, teens, adults and groups visiting the Virginia Aquarium can experience the natural world in an exciting new way—at the The Adventure Park. Outdoor fun-seekers five years old and up are able to “take to the trees” above the Aquarium’s Nature Paths and across Owls Creek in 13 different challenge level “treetop trails” containing 170 thrilling “crossings” between tree platforms. (Imagine zipping over Owls Creek!)

    The self-guided trails do not require previous climbing experience. After receiving a harness and a safety briefing, each climber selects a trail at their comfort level and then navigates its different “crossings” or “elements” moving from tree platform to tree platform. The trails include zip lines as well. All climbers wear safety harnesses that employ “double-clipped-on” technology to help keep the climber continuously connected to a safety cable throughout their time in the trees.

    The Adventure Park is both fun and full of learning opportunities about nature and one’s self. For more information on how The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium can bring high-flying adventure to your family vacation, click here.
