Tree-Go @Wildplay Nanaimo

There are two Wildplay Element parks in British Columbia, one located in Whistler B.C and the other in Nanaimo B.C located on beautiful Vancouver Island. I had the opportunity to check out the Tree course (called Tree-Go) and thought I would share my experience. The full course costs $39.99 or if you are doing the kids course, $19.99. Depending on the size of your group you may be eligible for group pricing. The course includes a natural obstacle course within the environment including zip lines, suspended bridges, scramble nets, swinging logs and much more. It's takes about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete the entire course. (Which we were unable to do, since we had some slow people ahead). It's important to always make sure you are clipped onto something with your safety harness at all times or you will be banned from the course. I would personally suggest going in groups of 10 or less and try to go early in the day because it does get extremely busy on weekends. All in all

Fire Ban All Over Vancouver Island and B.C

If you haven't already guessed, there is a ZERO tolerance fire ban in effect currently EVERYWHERE in B.C. Don't forget it's your civil duty to report a fire if you see one. You could get fined up to $345 if you are found with open flame. Also, smokers - please use extra caution!
