The former Builders Square store was vacant and held hostage from future development for so many years that it seemed it would never be filled again. But, a few months ago, a proposal came through to the Town Plan and Zoning Commission after the property owner released its grip on the building, and after all the proper plans and permits were submitted and approved, Urban Air Adventure Park got the green light.

This week, Urban Air Adventure Park announced the grand opening of the new Orange location at 260 Bull Hill Lane. The park will open its doors to the public for the first time on Saturday, July 14 at 10 a.m. and the first 300 grand opening attendees in line can win their choice of FREE Bowling, Go-Karts or Jumping for a year with the purchase of an Ultimate Pass.
