About WildPlay at the Bungy Zone
WildPlay seeks to engage people in active adventure experiences, where they are challenged to evolve beyond their self-perceived limits. Get back to nature with our “Primal Fun and Games”.
Certified climbing guides, Gordon Ross and Tom Benson established WildPlay Element Parks in 2005 after spending more than 15 years leading climbing adventures and connecting people to the great outdoors. As certified climbing instructors and paragliders, both had been thinking of ways to use the power of the group experience to introduce more people to outdoor adventure activities. Additionally, the steep learning curve and high level of commitment for adventures such as climbing was a deterrent for some people and intimidating for others.
Gord had discovered tree-to-tree parks during his travels to Europe and South America and was researching them with Tom as a way to deliver the outdoor experience to a greater range of people. Both recognized this would be an excellent way to realize their desire of bringing outdoor experiences to more people without the steep learning curve. In September 2005, WildPlay was founded.
