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!

Took our college mens' soccer team hear to escape the competition mentality and was an excellent team exercise with some fun ziplines.
