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!

First off I want to praise the staff for this park. They are courteous and timely. I start off with this because it is important to have that trust with a person who potentially will push you off a bridge. I bungee jumped for the first time here and felt very comfortable (fears aside). They had a great area to... More

Boys are physically very active & really enjoyed the challenges, diversity & zip lines of the Monkido Classic. Most have parental consent emailed to site with date of visit on it. Easy to talk on phone re questions & reservations. Kids must be able to reach 5ft 11in. This is so they can clip, unclip there safety lines. At times... More

I had a blast at wildplay! The course was challenging and fun but a huge part of why I had such a great time was because of the staff. They were so friendly and awesome to talk to. As fun as they were they also made my time at wildplay super safe. I definitely recommend going to wildplay. -bella. Age... More

Having read some other reviews I called ahead to see how busy the attractions would be on the day that we planned to go. They were very helpful and advised me that I could arrive prior to the large group that they were expecting that day. I booked online and signed all the waivers. This was very convenient. Once arriving... More

My kids were behind a large day camp with only one leader. Kids were struggling, the leader was no help at all. It took 2.5 hrs to only do the first section! They also have no benches for parents to sit !

Went here while on a vacation visiting family. Really enjoyed the park and so did the kids. The extreme course is definitely harder than first part of the course and you really have no option to bail out which really adds an element of "HOLY CRAP I HAVE TO DO THIS OR I AM SLEEPING IN A TREE!"

I have taken groups of ten year olds here several times now, and I will continue to do so. The Kids course is great for building up confidence in students who aren't very physically adventurous and the whole experience is a great bonding activity for a group. I see the most competitive, athletic kids mellow out and become caring "coaches"... More

Had an excellent time at WildPlay this week doing this Primal Swing with Steve, Ariel and Simon. Great group of people and a lot of fun. Highly recommend the Primal Swing. I'll be back to bungy soon!

Great for kids, or in our case grandkids. Adventures for all age levels (perhaps not our age level to be honest), climbing traversing, and, for the really daring, bungee jumping. Staff is good and careful to make sure that the younger kids don't get into trouble. Highly recommended. We have fun just wandering under the kids while they enjoyed themselves... More

I visited Wildplay Nanaimo for a bachelor party with 8 friends. Each and everyone of us had a terrific time! Staff were attentive, friendly, helpful, and reassuring. I would recommend WildPlay to families, couples, and anyone looking for a great time.
