Summer is here, which means one thing: It’s time to get out and experience some adventure!
Picture this: You’re standing in a beautiful forest of cedars and firs, palms sweaty and heart racing as you gaze up at the series of suspended ladders, bridges, nets, and ziplines zig-zagging throughout the treetops. Hoots, hollers, and laughter echo through the forest around you.
A welcoming instructor gets you harnessed up and guides your group through a training session so you’ll feel safe and secure throughout your adventure. Now it’s time! You reach for the ladder and climb until you arrive at the first platform. With a rush of adrenaline and excitement, you step forward and begin your aerial adventure.
This is just a preview of what to expect at WildPlay, a hidden gem for outdoor lovers and thrill seekers of all ages in Maple Ridge, Victoria, and Nanaimo.
“Challenging, Rewarding, Exhilarating!”
WildPlay features five levels of aerial adventure courses, including a dedicated Kids Course for ages five and up. The Classic Course is designed to help you build confidence and face your fears as you navigate suspended obstacles from the lowest to the highest level. When you’re ready to tackle the highest and toughest challenges at WildPlay, add on the Extreme Course, which features huge ziplines, massive cargo nets, and a giant rope swing up to 24 metres above the forest floor!
Vancouver Island Road Trip Destinations
Adventure seekers travelling to the Island this summer must check out WildPlay in Nanaimo for even more aerial adventures, including a Zipline Tour through the Nanaimo River Canyon, the infamous Bungy Jump and the giant Primal Swing. These thrills are guaranteed to challenge even the most seasoned adrenaline junkies!
A Focus on Risk Management
One of the best things about WildPlay is the emphasis on safety. All activities are supervised by trained staff, and participants are equipped with a harness and industry-leading gear. A “continuous belay system” throughout the entire park ensures that you are securely attached to a lifeline while up in the trees. That means you can focus on having fun without worrying about anything else.
New – Kids Adventure Camps
Designed for kids ages 10-14, WildPlay’s new Anti-Gravity Camp offers outdoor education, play and exercise for young adventure enthusiasts! Campers spend an entire week playing in the trees at WildPlay while learning valuable skills like teamwork, problem-solving and resilience. With a focus on inclusivity and relationship-building, Anti-Gravity Camp is a guaranteed win for your little monkeys to get off their phones and into the outdoors this summer. Registration is now open for programs starting this July.
No matter what adventure you sign up for, you’re sure to feel a sense of accomplishment as you conquer each obstacle and cheer for your friends and family along the way.
