This past Friday, May 19th was the official Grand Opening Event of WildPlay Niagara Falls Whirlpool Adventure Course. Dignitaries and local stakeholders were welcomed to catch a glimpse of Niagara Falls’ new and exciting obstacle course. It is officially opened to the public, and they look forward to an amazing first season.
WildPlay Niagara Falls Whirlpool Adventure Course
The WildPlay Niagara Falls Whirlpool Adventure Course has just had its official unveiling on May 19th, 2017, and it is a fun, challenging, and unique way to experience your choice of three self-paced suspended obstacles that include ziplines, climbing, jumping, and swinging aerial games. Of course, the setting can’t be beat with the backdrop being the Niagara Whirlpool and Niagara Gorge.
Types of Courses
Games and ziplines start at six-feet (two metres) above the ground, and begin to rise as you get comfortable with equipment and moving through the obstacles. The fun and challenge increases as you go — testing your bravery and evolving your abilities. Reach up to 45 feet (14 metres) and you’ve completed the whole course.
**Minimum age is 7. Children ages 7-13 must have an adult supervising in the park with them. Minimum reach: 5’11” (180 cm) with feet flat on the ground. 60-90 minutes to complete. Chaperone requirements: ten kids (ages seven to thirteen) per one adult (on the ground or in the trees).
This is an add-on to the Classic experience where you push your limits with the highest obstacles and ziplines — up to 60 feet (18 metres). The thrilling games and moving obstacles fully challenge your balance and strength.
**Minimum age is 12. Minimum reach is 5’11” (180 cm) with feet flat on the ground. 30-60 minutes to complete.
Suspended up to 10 feet (three metres) high, it features a dozen games and ziplines, created specifically for young guests to move independently and comfortable through the trees.
**Minimum age is 5, maximum age is 12. Minimum reach is 4’7″ (140 cm) with feet flat on the ground. 45-90 minutes to complete. Kids must have an adult supervising in the park with them. Parent/legal guardian signed waiver is required for each child.
WILDPLAY’S What’s To Fear Jump
Clip into a loose line and leap from 40 feet! The heart-pounding plummet to the forest floor will challenge your not-so-common sense. Try the What’s to Fear Jump as a stand-alone activity, or to enhance the Whirlpool Adventure Course experience.
**Minimun age is 7. Children ages 7-13 must have an adult supervising in the park with them. Minimum reach is 5’11” (180 cm) with feet flat on the ground. Chaperone requirements: ten kids (ages seven to fifteen) per one adult (on the ground or in the trees).
