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!

What a great experience. The people were so nice and helped us have great time. If you have not tired the Primal Swing, you are missing something else. Their setup is awesome and the scenery is beautiful.

We did the wildplay climbing through trees and so on. It was really funny and exiting. Sometimes it got very hard, but all in all the fun part was huge. The ending was a bit boring where you just have to climb down a ladder, it would have been cooler if you had to jump down anywhere or something like... More

I specifically travelled to Nanaimo to do the Bungy in Oct 2016 and I wasn't disappointed.

They were very professional and it was great to see they keep to the New... More

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.

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
