Tree-Mendous is pleased to announce the opening of San Diego Zoo Safari Park’s Jungle Ropes Safari. Jungle Ropes Safari is one of our most exciting aerial adventure parks to date. There are three different courses at the park, each offering more than a dozen different elements. If you’re ready for a big adventure, the rope bridges, aerial tightropes, swinging log steps, moving platforms, and zip lines will keep your adrenaline flowing with heights up to thirty-five feet off the ground!
Tree-Mendous designs all of our aerial adventure courses with your safety guiding each and every decision we make. Before you begin, the zoo’s fully-trained staff will train and provide instruction on how to navigate the course safely. While you enjoy your adventure, you’ll use a Smart Belay system with the staff on-hand for assistance. The Smart Belay system is a revolution in self-belaying products and aerial adventure park visitor safety. With conventional self-protection systems, users can completely detach themselves from the safety system. The Smart Belay uses a system of interconnected pulley carabiners (a carabiner is metal loop with a sprung gate). If one of the carabiners is open, the other will not open until its partner (in this case, the rope course operator) is clipped and closed on the safety cable.
Our words can only do so much. With Jungle Ropes Safari, seeing is truly believing. That being said, we were happy to discover the good folks at the zoo created a video that captures the spirit and energy of the course:
San Diego Zoo Blogger Matt Steele had the following to say about Jungle Ropes Safari:
“When I first heard a ‘ropes course’ was being installed at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, my first reaction was ‘ropes what!?’ I had never heard of a ropes course. I had an idea that it might be some kind of obstacle course, but I never envisioned the otherworldly treetop labyrinth that is Jungle Ropes Safari. When you head to the Safari Park and see it for yourself, you’ll know what I mean. It’s pretty impressive. I was lucky enough to be offered a sneak peek at Jungle Ropes Safari, and I can safely say it’s unlike anything I’ve ever done.”
