As a result of the recent actions taken by the state of Virginia to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are postponing the re-opening of The Adventure Park at at Virginia Aquarium.

We are preparing to open the Park as soon as we are able to operate in a manner that best protects our team, our guests and the community. We will post any updates on our website as the situation evolves.

Though you can't come to the Park, we encourage you to still spend time outside daily while practicing social distancing. We're including some ways for you to stay active and outside while still adhering to current social distancing guidelines.

For those of us dreaming of better days ahead in the trees, we're offering deep discounts on 2, 4 and 10 packs of tickets for a limited time. Many have thoughtfully asked how they might help employees affected by our extended closure. We are humbled by our awesome community and hope you'll consider taking advantage of this offer to help us best support our staff.

If you are in need of help, please visit United Way of South Hampton Roads for a list of local resources.

We look forward to seeing you back at The Adventure Park soon. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.

The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium — an eco-friendly zip line and aerial adventure experience in the trees above the scenic Owls Creek. Kids, teens and adults can all enjoy The Adventure Park and it's perfect for families or groups too. Up in the trees of the Owls Creek Path you will see wooden platforms at different heights. They are connected either by zip lines that climbers "zip" across or fun challenge bridges that climbers navigate in order to get from one platform to the next. A series of these bridges makes up an aerial trail.

Adventure Awaits You In The Trees!
There’s nothing like a day at The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium! Located in the majestic trees of the Aquarium, between the Marsh Pavilion and the Bay & Ocean Pavilion, you will find our amazing “aerial forest park.” The first of its kind in Virginia! Experience “adventure in the trees” on your own or with friends, family and parties. Ages five to adult are welcome. Looking for Virginia Beach activities? This is a must-do outdoor experience that the whole family can enjoy!

Look Up
You’ll see a series of platforms in the trees connected by cable, wood, rope and zip lines to form bridges. Each bridge presents a different challenge of how to get to the next platform. A series of bridges form “aerial trails” throughout the forest.

You don’t have to be a circus acrobat or Tarzan! Choose from 15 different color-coded trails, from “beginner” (easier and lower to the ground) to intermediate, to advanced (the most challenging).

Climb with Confidence
You will receive a complete safety orientation before your climb. Our double-connected, “always-locked-on” climbing system helps keep your climbing harness securely attached to the safety line at all times. The trails are intentionally designed for your self-discovery, making lessons unnecessary. Our Park Guides are available to assist throughout your visit.

Aerial Forest Adventure
With 15 Trails, 21 zip lines, 6 skill levels, and almost 200 challenge bridges, The Adventure Forest is the largest forest climbing park in the nation. At the heart of the park is the main platform with 15 separate trails heading off and up into the tree tops. Each is color coded indicating the difficulty of the trail. Like a ski mountain, each climber chooses their own level of challenge. Depending on the climber and the trails chosen, climbers can generally complete several during a three hour climbing session. There is even a special section of the park, The Labyrinth, which provides an ideal climbing environment for families with children ages 5-10. It is available to general admission tickets when it isn’t booked for awesome private groups or birthday parties!

The ticket you purchase includes 40 minutes for harnessing and safety orientation in addition to 3 hours of climbing.
