What to expect
Ride the Primal Swing at British Columbia's WildPlay Nanaimo. This self-proclaimed 'arc of adventure' is fun for the entire family, ages 12 and above. At WildPlay Element Parks, aerial adventures and zip lines transform a casual nature day into an incredible outdoor recreational activity for adults, teens, kids, and groups.  Ride a human slingshot, of sorts, from the Bungy Jump bridge, located 140 feet (42 meters) above the Nanaimo River on Vancouver Island. Reach speeds of up to 140 kilometers per hour while soaring through the natural rock canyon and swinging toward the water. The Primal Swing is available on a first-come, first-served basis upon check-in. A responsible adult must accompany kids ages 13 and younger on site. The minimum weight is 95 pounds (43 kilograms) per guest and 170 pounds (77 kilograms) per ride (solo or tandem). If the ride weight minimum cannot be met, a team member will be provided to assist. The maximum weight is 400 pounds (181 kilograms) per ride. A signed online waiver is required for each guest. A parent or legal guardian signature is required for each minor guest.

Worth Every Penny
Jun 2019 • Friends
Did both the Zipline Tour and the Primal Swing and both were incredible! The Zipline was so Scenic going over the nanaimo river, and our wonderful guides did everything for us so we just got to sit back and enjoy the ride.

The Primal Swing is daunting at first, but is truly an awesome experience. The scariest part it just looking over the edge, but once you go you wont want it to stop!

Primal Swing
Visiting from Winnipeg, MB and was searching for something awesome to do and ended up at WildPlay and had a BLAST, we had a great visit everyone was so helpful. One lady who helped us, Jen, was super. She came with me on the Primal Swing and made me feel comfortable and was really encouraging. I highly recommend this place for all their activities !

Thrill of a lifetime
Jul 2018 • Couples
If you like excitement and variety then this is the place you should visit. So many choices for kids and adults. We were helped by Jolene in deciding which adventure to take and she was absolutely right on with the Primal Swing recommendation. Jake and Nick were the guys that helped gear us up and did a wonderful job in explaining everything that was going to happen and helped put us at ease. It does get very busy in the summer so I highly recommend reservations.

Primal Swing and the Adventure Course
Jun 2018 • Family
First we did the adventure course, all 4 levels and our guide Shea was amazing. There whenever we needed help and she was full of energy. The adventure course was amazing and so much fun. After we did the primal swing which was exhilarating, I 10/10 would recommend.

Exhilarating!
May 2018 • Business
Half of our group did the Bungy Jump, while we did the Primal Swing. The guides were so informative regarding the history of the Bungy Jump!

My partner for the Swing was very nervous, and they calmed her down very well. It was like a roller coaster. We wanted to go a second time! The guides had great energy, we will definitely return to conquer the Bungy next time.
