If you have always desired to zip line over the ocean, river, forest, or canyon somewhere in the Rockies, Costa Rica, Nicaragua or Jamaica, you just may want to test your comfort level somewhere local first. Adventure Park in Storrs CT is perfect for such a feat. It was so much fun challenging oneself couple feet off the ground and swinging from the trees and testing one's limits. We purchased a deal for 2 using groupon and then visited (no need to make an appointment). There is plenty of free parking available. The staff are courteous, professional and helpful. It is environmentally friendly (use insect repellent, no motors, do no damage to trees or trails). The staff help you get suited up in your climbing harness and trained (orientation to using the locks) you before you went up in the trees. There are four different levels (yellow, green, blue and black) for different strengths and abilities. It combines obstacle courses with the zipline. It was so much fun. Best of all it is family friendly. I am definitely going again, and this time I am taking my children (children over 7 are permitted). It is also really safe (you are always locked to a cable using their double lock device) and the staff help you get down if you get stuck, have difficulty or are simply afraid. I went with my husband and two friends and we all enjoyed it. Its also a really fun workout.
