Ziplining at the Zoo
Treetop Adventures at Elmwood Park Zoo bring the thrill of ziplining to a truly unique location. The adventure courses take you high above the exhibits for an adrenaline rush like no other.
The Cub Climb is built for the zoo's little adventurers. Children 36" to 60" tall can take this easy-going course through 20 games and two zips.
The Treetop Zoofari encompasses the full challenge of the adventure course. The Zoofari features 45 obstacles and nine zips, including two flights over the animal exhibits. Because of the challenging nature of the course, you must be at least 54" tall to attempt it.
In addition to the two full courses, Elmwood Park Zoo offers two partial tours: the Half-Course Tour is available after 4 p.m., while the Quick Zip takes you through three obstacles and three zips in quick succession.
There's also a Night Adventure, offered one weekend per month by reservation only. Take on the challenge of the Zoofari course beginning at 7 p.m. for these special events.
