noun: a series of suspended obstacle games that increase in challenge, height, and fun across four Course Sections of ladders, cargo nets, rope swings, tightropes, swinging logs, wobbly bridges, and other aerial surprises.
verb: the playful "monkey-see, monkey-do" action of testing physical and mental limits; learning that with bravery and practice life is a never-ending evolution.
EVERY MONKIDO® ADVENTURE IS A NEW SURPRISE.
THERE AREN'T MANY PLACES THAT THRILL AND CHALLENGE GUESTS WHO ARE YOUNG OF AGE, AS WELL AS THOSE WHO ARE MORE YOUNG AT HEART.
Fortunately, WildPlay's Monkido® Buddy Course does both! Simply by partnering an adult and child (age 7 to 11) we give brave and able kids a greater challenge, and give adults an opportunity to have a fun adventure with their young family or friends.
Both guests train on our demo course to start, and then the younger Buddy guest proves he or she can manage our Kids Course obstacles. If successful, both guests head off on a fun adventure together on the higher (and more challenging) green, blue, and red sections of our Classic Course.
Adult and child partnerships make the perfect transition for courageous kids to explore their limits of independence and freedom. And grown-ups feel an irresistible sense of energy, youthfulness and need to play take over on this 1.5- to 3-hour adventure!
Is it playtime for partners? We're ready to unleash it!

"The instruction was first rate.
The guide's tips provided me with the confidence to go on the first level. What a blast. I progressed to the second level and convinced my son to give it a go. We did a couple loops of the first two levels. My wife went onto to level 3 and found it challenging but fun."

"Wow! What a hoot!
You are strapped into a harness with 2 safety lines and a zip-line thingy. The course goes gradually from just off the ground to 50 feet up. You can challenge yourself to increase the difficulty by trying not to hold on to the safety line...harder than it looks. I'm a bit of a thrill seeker, and I was definitely enjoying myself."

“Monkido with my son--we did it!”
My son and I did the monkido buddy course together. I am 52 and he is 11. I thought I was there to help him but it was the other way around. After he did the kids course we both did the adult course together. The course gradually gets higher and more difficult. The height did not bother us so much. But some of the obstacles were quite difficult. The swinging ropes and stepping on those spinning balls was hard for me. I was really tired by the end but felt good having completed the course. (Okay, I skipped the last black course that my son could not do with me.) This was really a great bonding experience with my son.
