Aerial adventures & zip lines transform an afternoon in the outdoors...

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!

Bungee jumping, zipline, and ropes courses: this is a fun and safe place to adventure. The staff was helpful and friendly. For most people, these activities are pretty extraordinary, but the staff treats them as blase. You're safe, but it would be nice if the staff was more enthusiastic.

We were surprised to see that it was open, because of the rain there was no wait time. However, i recommend bringing a second pair of pants if you do go in the rain. You get kind of wet as the staff takes you off the bungee cord. 1/2 price for life after first jump Free tshirt with your first... More

We went for a staff outing and it was so much fun! We did the monkido course and I loved every minute of it. It was challenging but not to hard. It is a great work out and the mixture of obstacles and zip lines was awesome! Annabelle our guide was very helpful, her training and encouragement made all of... More

I took my wife (who is afraid of falling) and an early-20s son with me. We all enjoyed it. My wife wasn't too scared (harness helped, of course) but when she was too scared to move, staff helped her down without any drama. The ziplines were the star of the show for me.

I went bungee jumping and it was something I will never forget! The workers were very flexible as our ferry to Nanaimo was late and couldn't make it for our original check in time. In addition to the bungee jump, I also did the primal swing and the Monkido course which were amazing in there own sense. This is a... More

We had a birthday party for young children at Monkido in Victoria where the kids had a great time in spite of minimal trained supervision/ guidance & issues with amenities. We decided to try the same course with a visiting young child. Our 3 were 2 - 10 year olds & an 8 year old but we were paired with... More

This place was amazing! It is treetop obstacle courses and zip lining! I don't naturally have a fear of heights, but I did that day! But the staff was AMAZING at keeping me calm. They are so wonderful there! There are swinging logs and rope bridges and rope walls, and slat bridges. Each level takes you higher up and is... More

Classic course was good and challenging for a moderately fit 50 year old with almost no upper body strength. (I bench press 10 lb!) I should have stopped there, but had paid for funky monkey bundle. And if I've paid for it... Extreme course is quite a bit more challenging especially when you are tired from the first course. We... More

We visited during a really hot period for nanaimo and truth be told, I'm sure most people were out enjoying themselves at lakes, the beach or anywhere remotely more refreshing than this. That being said, the absence of anyone else was a god send and my two young daughters were really able to enjoy and appreciate the junior section. A... More
