The Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum in Bridgeport is all about high-octane fun. They have 23 zip lines and 180 treetop platforms to explore so everyone ages 5 and older can feel that adrenaline rush we crave.

Their newest adventure is just for those ages 12 and older. Up to 5 people can share a lane and challenge themselves to hit the bullseye with an axe. This is the only outdoor axe-throwing location in Fairfield County! And don't worry if you've never done it before — their coaches will offer a quick safety briefing and tips just for newbies.

You can pair axe-throwing with their other attractions, too. The aerial park is designed for people of all fitness levels and abilities; it's even a great team-building activity. As they say on their website:

Our 13 trails are rated by difficulty using the same designations as ski resorts, so you can design your own path. Staff members are also available throughout the day to guide and help you. With 180 treetop challenges and 23 ziplines, everyone will have something to be excited about.
