WildPlay Elements Park offers a variety of courses for adventurers of all ages. The park’s thrilling Kids Course was designed specifically for young adventurers from 5 years old to 12 years old. Although our kids decided to skip the Kids Course this time, we were impressed by its setup, tailored perfectly to suit their age and abilities.

As a family, we decided to tackle the Classic Course together. Geared up, we ventured into the treetops, awestruck by the lush forest canopy. The Classic Course, was an awe-inspiring journey that promised to test our mettle and push us to new heights.

What To Expect

Our adventure began with a comprehensive training session on the ground. Expert instructors guided us through ziplines and the belay system, boosting our confidence for aerial challenges.

With our newfound knowledge, we eagerly climbed up a ladder to reach the starting point of the Classic Course. From there, it was a thrilling and heart-pounding experience as we made our way from tree to tree, traversing an array of exciting obstacles.

We walked across tightropes, testing our balance and focus as we carefully placed each step. Climbing up cargo nets challenged our strength and coordination, rewarding us with a sense of accomplishment at each ascent. Sliding down ziplines allowed us to experience the thrill of flying through the air, feeling the rush of wind against our faces.

The rope swings had us feeling like acrobats, soaring through the treetops with delight. Swinging logs tested reflexes, wobbly bridges called for steady nerves and teamwork.

Throughout the course, we were surrounded by the beauty of nature, immersed in the sights and sounds of the forest. The laughter and excitement echoed through the trees as we conquered each challenge together, strengthening our bond as a family.

While we decided to save the Extreme Course for our next visit, the experience was no less thrilling. Observing adventurers, we anticipated our next visit brimming with thrills and heart-pounding moments.

Quality Instructors and Safety

WildPlay Elements Park’s commitment to safety was evident at every step of the way. The park’s quality instructors were always on hand to provide expert guidance, safety tips, and endless encouragement. Their reassuring presence allowed us to fully enjoy the adventure without worries.

Defy Gravity: WTF Jump

But the real daredevil highlight of the day awaited us at the 40 ft jump called WTF Jump – short for “What to Fear!” This exhilarating challenge involved climbing up a 40 ft rope ladder, reaching a wooden platform where a staff member helped clip us in. Standing at the edge, with the ground far below, we felt an electrifying mix of excitement and nerves.
