The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium announces annual ‘Holiday Tree Hunt’

The Adventure Park at Virginia Aquarium, the area’s largest zipline and climbing adventure experience, is happy to announce its annual “Holiday Tree Hunt.”


“This is not your typical Easter egg hunt,” said Candie Fisher, President of The Adventure Park. “It is a fun scavenger hunt through our treetop trails.”


Elves are hiding throughout several of the trails.  Participants find the elves in the trees and win a treat at the end of their climb.


“We love to celebrate the holidays with our guests,” added Park Manager, Darlene Zimble. “Kids of all ages delight in finding our elves in the trees and getting a treat after their climb.”


Participation in the “Holiday Tree Hunt” is free, but guests will need to purchase a ticket for climbing at  Dates for the “Holiday Tree Hunt” are December 10 through January 1 during regular operating hours.


The Adventure Park at the Virginia Aquarium has also released its Winter Break schedule with daily extended hours from December 23 through January.  The schedule can be found HERE
