Let your fear out to play.  The Classic Adventure course is 3 levels of games, challenges, and zip lines, increasing in height and difficulty as you go, testing your bravery and evolving your abilities. The course takes 1.5 - 2 hours to complete. The Extreme Adventure course is an add-on to the classic course. It includes 12 games and 4 ziplines that push the challenge off the charts. It is up to 60ft high! The course takes 30 - 45 minutes to complete. WildPlay has innovated and implemented a continuous belay system for our Adventure courses. It provides the benefit of making it impossible for you, as a guest, to accidentally disconnect from the course and risk a fall.
