WildPlay Element Parks is excited to open its newest location on historic Jones Beach. The park is open to the public starting July 2nd and will feature a 700-foot zipline, 40-foot freefall jump as well as three Adventure Courses for ages five through to adults with spectacular views of Jones Beach.
Opening July 2nd, the 700-foot zipline will provide an exciting new way for guests to experience Jones Beach while soaring through the air. Locals and visitors will be able to work their way through the adventure course reaching heights of up to 40 feet all while taking in the breathtaking vistas of the natural environment with views stretching all the way to Manhattan. This attraction has created local jobs where the WildPlay team will provide exciting adventures and is a significant part of the Jones Beach revitalization project which is focused on enhancing the existing beachscape and offering a new experience for people of all ages at the beach. WildPlay is committed to the revitalization of Jones Beach, engaging local contractors to ensure the correct soils and plants are used throughout the site to enhance the natural setting and encourage the return of birds, rabbits and frogs to the area.
An industry leader and award-winning company, WildPlay has been a leader in the aerial adventure business since 2006 and has successfully developed thirteen major adventure parks in U.S.A and Canada. Led by Chief Experience Officer, Tom Benson, WildPlay encourages life-long activity and exploration through unique experiences that provide exciting adventure recreation in a risk-managed environment that pushes guests outside their comfort zone.
“We are thrilled to open the zipline and adventure park at Jones Beach. These adventures represent advanced designs, which minimize environmental impact while revitalizing and re-naturalizing the site” says Tom Benson, CEO, WildPlay Element Parks. “New York State Parks has been a fantastic partner; we are excited to be working with them to revitalize Jones Beach and can’t wait for guests of all ages to experience these unique and captivating adventures in such a beautiful setting.”
