I saw some TV ads for the grand opening of Jordan's Furniture in New Haven CT with what's being called the largest indoor adventure ropes course in the country. Since it wasn't far from where I live I decided to check it out. I got there about five minutes before it opened, and as expected the main parking lot was full and there was a line all the way down the sidewalk and around the corner. By the time I was done taking pictures of the outside of the building, the line was about half as short and moving fast! Every person who walked through the line shook the hand of the owner and then walked through a gauntlet of store employees clapping and cheering. It was actually pretty neat!
I of course went straight for the ropes course (complete with ice cream and a pizza restaurant) as soon as I walked in, and I wasn't disappointed! The ropes course looked amazing though I didn't go on it. My daughter would have killed me if I went without her. There were also separate challenges for younger kids. The water feature was amazing as well with it's colored lights and geysers that were synced to the music filling the giant room.
After that I walked around the huge labyrinthine store. Some sections were very disorienting, and I was sureI was going to get lost but I was always spit right back out onto the main thoroughfare. Everything was very nice and styled in an interesting way like the kitchen/dining area where the walls were completely covered in pallets. There were definitely a few things I was drooling over, like the rocking bed, the movie/studio style floor lamps, the cool shoe mold mirror and a funky multicolored couch. All in all it's a great place with a lot to offer! I'd highly recommend a visit!
The whole sign is chairs! Cool!
