I wasn't sure what to expect but the experience turned out positive. My coworkers and I got to try the first two Monkido levels as a FAM TRIP and even though the start was a little shaky for me, by the end I wanted more, more, more. The activity is exhilarating, fun, and great for team building. The park is... More

Me and my boyfriend went here for an exciting thing to do on our anniversary and it was really fun! We did the monkido, the course was really well layed out and the instructors were helpful. It wasnt too expensive considering what you are doing. I would go again. My only piece of advice is don't go first in the... More

I took my teenage sons to this park. They loved the climbing with their younger cousins, but really got excited about the bungy jumping. It is a great place for a family with a variety of age and ability levels in the teenage range. Often there are amusement places aimed at the 10 year old that all ages can benefit... More

I was excited but nervous to go to Wildplay for my birthday having had knee surgery 8 months prior and feeling out of shape. My brother and I decided to do the monkido course. There seemed to be quite a few people allowed to do the course at one time as we had to wait in a long slow moving... More

If you haven't been here yet, go. Well located just off the highway, it's easy to find and provides a solid half day of fun. School aged kids and teens will all find things to do. The staff are knowledgeable, caring, and experienced. They really help you conquer your fears. It is safe but mistakes are part of human nature,... More

Every year, one week before the park opens for regular business, it hosts a fundraising event for the Victoria chapter of the BC Schizophrenia Society. This event is a naked bungy jump. All proceeds go to the charity. I plucked up my courage and signed up for it this year. I am so glad I did. It was indeed super... More

Visted there with the grandkids. Didn't partake in the events because the kids were too small. But they got a joy watching the bungy jumpers. That was a real thrill. We also had a picnic while we were there.
