Made up of wooden footbridges, ziplines, and demanding rope courses, each of the 5 aerial trails at The Adventure Park at Storrs winds higher and higher above the forest floor. The color-coded pathways were built with climbers of all skill levels in mind, ranging from low-to-the-ground beginners' courses to the more advanced skyward trajectories. Safety orientations precede every climb, upon which participants embark while strapped into a climbing system that always remains securely connected to a safety line. The park strives to keep its surrounding forest and trees healthy by making sure light, air, and moisture flow freely along each trail.

Within Stone Age Rock Gym's indoor facility, 4,500 square feet of textured climbing walls help visitors ascend to new heights. Bouldering, 32-foot lead routes, and top-rope climbing areas await gym guests, surrounding them in technicolor handholds that creep up the walls at challenging angles. Elsewhere, a simulated ice-climbing wall absorbs the blows of axes, and a gear shop preps climbers to ascend walls with the dexterity of Spiderman.

A staff of certified guides lead classes that teach students as young as 6 the fundamental skills needed to ascend simulated peaks. Alternatively, the experts head up guided climbing trips to sites across the state. They help eager climbers scale the 30-foot Wolf Rock in Mansfield Hollow and reach the Sasquatch hugs awaiting them atop Ragged Mountain's 120-foot cliff.

Intent on combining the recreational comfort of an outdoors ropes course with the comfort of an indoor facility, the structural engineer behind Soarin' Indoors designed a traditional aerial adventure park that isn't subject to the whims of inclement weather. Two separate courses fill the 12,000-square-foot space, including one built 2.5 feet off the ground and the other towering 12 feet in the air. Each route consists of a series of challenges—including wobbling rope bridges, high wires, trapezes, cargo nets, and zip lines—which can be overcome with a combination of problem-solving skills, balance, and stamina. Although youngsters and newcomers might want to try the lower course first, each route was designed to be accessible for first-time visitors as well as experienced climbers. The danger of falling is minimized by the harnesses guests wear, which are attached to overhead safety lines with two auto-locking carabiners, turning any slips into a fall of inches as opposed to feet. As further proof of their dedication to safety, trained guides will routinely walk the course grounds and offer tips, guidance, and stock investment advice to anyone in need.

To ensure it remains on the cutting-edge of product development, the shop communicates directly with most of those manufacturers through an intricate system of yodeling.

Manchester Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu follows the teachings of the Gracie family, who derived their own style of jiu-jitsu after learning the ancient Japanese version of the art. Jiu-jitsu's practice allows for a physically weaker person to defeat a stronger opponent through the use of superior technique and skill. Manchester Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers classes to kids—who learn both self-defense and self-confidence—and adults alike.
