Children’s Museum’s ‘Adventure Forest’ Completion Delayed

Good things come to those who wait…right?
In June, the Children’s Museum of Denver at Marsico Campus broke ground on a major new exhibit. Adventure Forest is an outdoor aerial adventure course and immersive, exploratory sculpture.
Construction is well underway, but is taking longer than estimated. Adventure Forest opening dates, originally slated for September, have shifted to later this year.
“Building and constructing Adventure Forest – something so incredibly unique – is taking longer than our original estimated timeline,” said Mike Yankovich, Museum president. “Adventure Forest is coming, and it will be extraordinary! We want to give it the time and care it needs to be the absolute best it can be.”
Adventure Forest is designed for confident climbers and their grown-ups, featuring elements like rope swings, a glass bridge, slinky climb, a lookout that sits over 55 ft in the air, and dueling 70 ft slides with rainbow prisms to return you to earth. And, sitting 90 feet above the banks of the South Platte River and I-25, the sculpture will be a new landmark in Denver’s skyline.
