Jungle Island will be debuting its 6-acre Aerial Game Trek on Saturday, Nov. 21. The new outdoor aerial adventure park features four color-coded ropes courses, more than 100 obstacles of varying difficulty levels, two ziplines and ample space for participants to social distance. Additionally, Jungle Island offers a Discovery Course for kids ages 5 and up.
Following an in-depth tutorial led by an expert guide, participants will be fastened onto the courses’ continuous safety line using an interlocking safety clip system designed to keep guests safe at all times. Once secured, climbers can ascend at their own pace into the treetops where they will encounter suspended bridges, Tarzan swings, swinging logs, cable crossings and ziplines. Guests are able to climb from one treetop to the next through wooden platforms that are built high up in the trees and are connected by a combination of cables, wood and ropes.
In addition, the Aerial Game Trek is naturally integrated into Jungle Island’s lush tree canopy, with scenic views of the Magic City and Biscayne Bay. It is the latest permanent attraction in a series of new entertainment offerings coming soon to the eco-adventure theme park including a 19,000-sq.-ft. Flying Squirrel indoor trampoline park. This indoor amusement center will be equipped with multiple interconnected trampolines, basketball hoops, dodgeball court, foam pits, and cafe.
Jungle Island will exclusively open for the Aerial Game Trek only and by online reservations only on Fridays-Sundays and daily over the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. As part of the experience of visiting Jungle Park for the Aerial Game Trek, guests will also get to meet and interact with some of the rare animals that call Jungle Island home, as well as receive access to a Treewalk Village and thematic playground—both of which were completed in March 2020. The Treewalk Village boasts five 19-ft. giant tree houses that guests can explore by traversing through hammock nets and wooden bridges. The neighboring playground, meanwhile, includes a spiderweb climb, climbing ropes, rock climbing, a balance beam, a slide and wooden bridges.
To participate in the Aerial Game Trek, guests must be at least five years or older, and a minimum of 45” tall. Height and weight restrictions apply. No climbing experience is required.
Tickets are $59.99 per adult and $39.99 per child (5 years old and up). If a parent wishes to join their child on the Discovery Course, the cost is $39.99 per person. Reservations are required and participation times are spread out to allow for social distancing and to adhere to Miami-Dade County’s New Normal guidelines on capacity restrictions. Team building and group activities are available upon request.
