Owner description: 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!

“Great family fun!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This was our second WildPlay experience (the first was Whistler). We all had fun (even though my 11 year old was lamenting that he has to wait until he's 12 to do the "black" level!) and made it through the courses safe & sound. This location isn't as "pretty" as the Whistler one, but still very nice. (the constant road noise and/or train track noise was a little bit distracting). The staff were friendly and encouraging as they watched from below. We'd return to do this again! **on a "cheapskate" note; Some Costcos sell WildPlay gift cards - for $79.99 you get $100 in gift cards to use...helpful as this attraction is a bit pricey (but worth it!)

“What a heart pounding, exciting birthday”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

I made it through the entire course, my arms were shaking, my heart was pounding, it was a work out to say the least. I am so proud of myself for completing the course. What a fun day with my teen boys! I would go again in a heartbeat!

Took my first Bungee from there platform/bridge, its 150ft drop down between the walls of rock to the river, the view is incredible, and when you jump, keep your eyes open, because its just as beautiful as you drop down between the canyon. Would recommend for anyone looking for the thrill, its beautiful. Also there are other things, zip line, trekking etc, didnt do, so can not review.
