Aerial adventures & zip lines transform an afternoon in the outdoors into awesome recreation adventures at WildPlay Element Parks. Adults, teens, kids, and groups get back to nature, through primal fun & games that include the adrenaline pumping: Monkido® Aerial Adventure - an exclusive tree-top obstacle course, that teaches the lost art of monkeying-around. Guests conquer climbing nets, fly across zip lines, balance on wobbly bridges, take a Tarzan swing and dozens more games, 2-18m above ground. Bungy Jump - a famous 46m ankle-harnessed leap from a trestle bridge high above the Nanaimo River. Bragging rights included. Over 250,000 guests, and counting!. Primal Swing - a giant pendulum ride that arcs 39m from the trestle bridge through the Nanaimo River canyon! With intense 140kph speeds, and amazing scenery, it's a breath-taking nature experience. DragonFLY Zip Lines - two smooth, swift, and scenic flights that cross the Nanaimo River canyon. A guided adventure for those who just want to hang out and enjoy the ride. | Challenge your abilities, discover your inner monkey, spend time with friends, and evolve beyond your [self-perceived] limits in Nanaimo's most unique outdoor play space!

My friend and I purchased the bungyjump and primal swing package. It was well worth the $$ and gave the experience of a lifetime. I'll hands down go again (that's a pun in case you didn't catch it). Also, you get a free t-shirt too (apparently that's a selling point - so if you're into that sort of thing go... More

If you have the money and bored teenagers. Sign them up for this. If you do it right you could be free to watch them struggle through some very challenging obstacles, or just ditch them for 2 1/2 hours while you rediscover your freedom.

One of our kids had a blast enjoying the aerial park in the trees. It seemed to be a well kept facility that seemed to focus and take safety quite seriously, But when we phoned we didn't get someone from Nanaimo and they gave us the wrong price. it ended up being $40.00 ea. instead of $25.00 ea. like they...

Course itself was ,excellent and probably better than the UK ones, however stuck behind a family of 6 who insisted on watching each other on every obstacle, with a Q of 12 ,behind them...not enough staff on the ground to sort...

great experience, our family has gone quite a few times as they've progressed from the kids course to the black course. I like that you can get off where ever you want. I get off at the end of classic ( 60+) , but some (15+) do the extreme. My only negative is the last time we were there ,... More

We did the monkido aerial walks, which took about two hours, was a good work-out and really fun. The guides were friendly but disappeared several times, so it's sometimes a bit hard if you want to ask them something. But the surroundings look great and afterwards I did the zipline which was fun and above some really nice river scenery.... More
