Adventure Awaits You in the Trees: The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium!

Fun in the Great Outdoors— There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium! The amazing aerial forest park features climbing and zip lining through majestic trees near the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center’s Marsh Pavilion.  Take to the treetops on 15 trails that weave between tree platforms on the 6-acre site. Trails are marked by the degree of challenge they provide, offering adventures for ages 5 through adult. Explore the park on your own or make memories with your family and friends. This is the perfect outdoor activity for birthday parties, scout groups, school field trips, and corporate events or team building programs. Ages five to adult are welcome!
