Guests bring out the monkey at heart while push their limits by traversing progressively higher and more challenging zip lines and suspended games. Based on the concept of ""monkey see, monkey do"", guests move at their own pace to conquer tightropes, missing plank bridges, swinging logs; soar on ziplines; climb on cargo nets, ascend tree ladders, and more - six to 60 feet (2-18m) above ground!Every tree-top adventure begins with a navigation session that readies you to tackle obstacles and suspended “surprises”. With three courses to choose from (Kids, Buddy and Classic), Monkido is a suitable activity for people of all generations to enjoy a personal or group adventure that will boost self-confidence - and a healthy outdoor lifestyle.Access requirements apply. « less

Fun, fun, fun! It's my playground! The Monkido Classic course is four levels long, each level with more difficult (and higher off the ground!) obstacles. The guides are upbeat and friendly. They make sure your harness is on correctly and provide clear instructions during training. Once you've completed the training, you have to show that you understand. While you're on... More

Seeing your nine-year-old child suspended on a wire line 10 meters above the ground with no safety net is not everyone's idea of a fun time. But if your adventurous child is okay with it, shouldn't you be? The caveat here is that your child (and you!) are in a climbing harness with two ropes and carabiners to ensure your... More

My work recently did a team building event at WildPlay and it was awesome. The course is very well designed with the degree of difficulty increasing as you make your way through the course. They've thought of many different types of suspended obstacles that test your agility and strength, but not in a way that excludes anyone because they're not... More

Went with 2 adults and 2 young teens. Everyone had a great time. Challenging and fun without ever quite reaching the life-flash-before-your-eyes level of a bungee jump. Course mid-way up trees of the rainforest was great. Guides were clear, attentive but left you to play. Course and gear well-maintained and high quality. Note that the most challenging (fun) parts of... More

Who has not wanted to be like a monkey (or monkido) swinging through the trees? This place is great.. it allows people to safely go from tree to tree by a number of different means - zipline, rope swings, balancing wires, and climbing ropes, etc.. all anywhere from 10-100ft. above the ground! I was especially impressed with the safety standards... More

Took my niece and she had a blast. Went back to the start and did it again! The instruction given beforehand was spot on and there were staff periodically along the course to ensure everyone was playing safely. A great experience!

This was so much fun - a bit nerve wracking getting used to doing it without staff supervision, but I had a great time and I'll definitely find an excuse to go back. Only thing is that it's kinda far from, well, everything (like all of Maple Ridge), so maybe make it a day trip and have a picnic/swim/boat/camp up... More

We went as a family and enjoyed the challenge. It can get busy and you end up waiting a bit to do the next obstacle, but it did not bother us it gave us a bit of a break in between!

i love the fact that its all self guided! at one part of the training, the staff was looking at one end of the training coarse when A LOT of people were making dangerous mistakes at the beginning and the staff couldn't correct them so they have a bigger chance of risk on the actual coarse. other than that, me...

It's not legally binding for a parent to sign a waiver for a minor child. The BC child protection law takes precedence. I hope the staff understand this. Waivers for children are just a technique to mislead unsophisticated parents and guardians.

Hello Yabva: Our waiver, like the demonstration at the start of our Monkido Aerial Adventure, is part of a system we use to inform and educate guests - and/or those responsible for their care - about potential risks that could arise while participating in our Elements. Our youngest guests are unprepared to read and comprehend the important safety information we... More
