Unleash It at WildPlay Element Parks in West Shore Victoria

A 15-minute drive from downtown Victoria will take you to one of Vancouver Island’s most popular adventure park and tourist attractions. People have explored the outdoors and put their courage to the test in order to break the barrier of self-perceived limits. What am I talking about? It’s the ultimate adventure destination for people ages seven and older – WildPlay Element Parks.

If you have grown tired of weekend getaways spent lazing by the beach, and are looking for some exhilarating action, WildPlay West Shore Victoria offers an exciting way to entertain yourself and guests with an outdoor challenge for the young and old. For fun family vacations, weekend getaways or birthday celebrations, their Adventure Courses and What’s to Fear Jump are ideal activities for real action and fun memories.

Adventure Courses

Way, way up above your head, there’s an obstacle course where we throw everything at you: log ladders, ziplines, cargo nets, rope swings, tightropes, swinging logs, wobbly bridges. Dozens of suspended surprises are up there, becoming more challenging the higher you get. But stick with it, you’ll learn as you go.Our Adventure Course games are “a-ok” for humans who are aren’t always gung-ho about heights, because everyone needs somewhere to let their fear out to play.

What’s to Fear (WTF Jump)


That little perch high above the ground – that’s where you’re going. Up that rope ladder and onto the platform, you’re tethered to a jump line and then things get real simple. You go over the edge. Step forward or backward, it doesn’t matter. Either way gravity wins.

Make sure to ask your friends to capture every second of your big leap. If you prefer to have a peer support, tandem jumps are also available. Bungy Jumping is something every adrenalin junkie should try.


If flying is more your thing, zip above the Nanaimo River and enjoy the breathtaking view below. Spanning the canyon, and under the Bungy Bridge, the Canyon Zip Element offers a memorable ride.

Primal Swing

One is never too old to let loose and have fun. Lots of “big kids” experience a wonderful time in the “sling-shot”-esque swing.
