BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ Bridgeport’s Discovery Museum is building what is being billed as the state’s first aerial adventure park.

The “Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum” will be a five-acres facility in Veterans Memorial Park, behind the Discovery Museum & Planetarium.

It is based on similar parks in Europe and will include eight “aerial trails,” which will consist of about 110 platforms in trees connected by cables, wood and rope bridges and zip lines.

Trails will range in difficulty from beginner to expert.

It is scheduled to open in July.
