The wildest treetop adventure in the Northwest is back!
It’s time for a wildly fun summer adventure! Ever wanted to soar through the forest like an eagle? See what an owl’s view from above looks like? Climb up high into a tree like a cougar? Now is your chance! Zip Wild at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park returns July 14th.
At Zip Wild, three exhilarating zipline and challenge courses run through the park’s breathtaking tree canopy. Soar along each zipline, then walk, climb, crawl or clamber over obstacles in between. All courses take mental toughness and physical agility, and all courses will give you bragging rights for the rest of the year!
A dozen challenges come with five zip lines on this toughest course at the park. Imagine standing several stories about the forest floor on a wood platform in the midst of the fir-tree canopy. The only way forward is straight out of a Tarzan movie, and it’s called a Jane Swing. Grab a rope. Jump off the platform. Swing 30-to-40 feet and catch a suspended net. Sensation takes you as high as 80 feet (the height of an eight-story building)! Price: $90 plus tax. Includes park admission. Age: 18+
Climb a 30-foot wall and then test your agility and balance with a number of suspended bridges throughout this course. Walk a high-wire tightrope some 55 feet in the air. Enjoy the thrill of six zip lines that you’ll whiz down at 33 feet per second. Price: $65 plus tax. Includes park admission. Age: 10+. Ages 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the length of the course.
It’s called aerial for a reason! Try your best to be stable on a trapper climbing ladder and two Andes bridges high above the ground to get to the zip line. The 512 foot long zip line will make your spirits soar and leave a big smile on your face! Price $30 plus tax. Includes park admission. Age: 8+. Ages 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the length of the course.
All three courses include admission to the park. So, when you’re done soaring and climbing, you can see eagles, owls, bears and more animals that call that type of treetop canopy home in the wild.
On all of the courses, you’ll be attached to a safety line at all times. So, while there’s a feeling of danger, there’s also the knowledge of being securely clipped in. Zip Wild complies with all state and federal requirements and is accredited by the Association for Challenge Course Technology.
