A day to remember

We love to take our grand children here and wish we were young enough to try it. They love every minute of the challenge and excitement.

We did the wildplay climbing through trees and so on. It was really funny and exiting. Sometimes it got very hard, but all in all the fun part was huge. The ending was a bit boring where you just have to climb down a ladder, it would have been cooler if you had to jump down anywhere or something like... More

I specifically travelled to Nanaimo to do the Bungy in Oct 2016 and I wasn't disappointed. Though it is not the biggest of jumps, Steve and Ariel were very helpful with suggesting different ways to do the jump to make it as exciting as possible. They were very professional and it was great to see they keep to the New... More

Bungee jumping, zipline, and ropes courses: this is a fun and safe place to adventure. The staff was helpful and friendly. For most people, these activities are pretty extraordinary, but the staff treats them as blase. You're safe, but it would be nice if the staff was more enthusiastic.

We were surprised to see that it was open, because of the rain there was no wait time. However, i recommend bringing a second pair of pants if you do go in the rain. You get kind of wet as the staff takes you off the bungee cord. 1/2 price for life after first jump Free tshirt with your first... More

We went for a staff outing and it was so much fun! We did the monkido course and I loved every minute of it. It was challenging but not to hard. It is a great work out and the mixture of obstacles and zip lines was awesome! Annabelle our guide was very helpful, her training and encouragement made all of... More

I took my wife (who is afraid of falling) and an early-20s son with me. We all enjoyed it. My wife wasn't too scared (harness helped, of course) but when she was too scared to move, staff helped her down without any drama. The ziplines were the star of the show for me.

I went bungee jumping and it was something I will never forget! The workers were very flexible as our ferry to Nanaimo was late and couldn't make it for our original check in time. In addition to the bungee jump, I also did the primal swing and the Monkido course which were amazing in there own sense. This is a... More

We had a birthday party for young children at Monkido in Victoria where the kids had a great time in spite of minimal trained supervision/ guidance & issues with amenities. We decided to try the same course with a visiting young child. Our 3 were 2 - 10 year olds & an 8 year old but we were paired with... More
