If your little explorers love climbing, you’ll want to pay a visit to the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus where a 500 foot long aerial adventure course has just opened.

The Adventure Forest features 70 feet of slides, climbing courses, rope swings, a glass and log bridge and a 90-foot lookout post that offers a 360-degree view which includes the South Platte River. The new aerial course is an extension of the Children’s Museum and entry is included in the museum’s admission price.

“We wanted to create something unlike anything in the city with Adventure Forest. We know it has taken longer than expected, but we promise, it will be well worth the wait,” Mike Yankovich, Museum President and CEO told 9News. “This breathtaking experience will inspire kids to be brave and believe in themselves, get their hearts pumping and remind them that outdoor play is way more fun than looking at a screen.”

Entry into the museum is $12 per person for kids and adults ages 2 and up. Climbers in Adventure Forest must be five years old or 44 inches tall.
