WildPlay Jones Beach: Thrilling Adventure Park Offers Unlimited Zipline Weekend Packages – LongIsland.com | Dauktion

WildPlay Jones Beach is currently offering unlimited weekend zipline rides for the ultimate adrenaline junkies!

When it comes to getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing the ultimate adrenaline rush, few things compare to the amazing adventures on offer at WildPlay Jones Beach, a boardwalk adventure park at Jones Beach that takes you out of your comfort zone, to experience air thrills for people of all ages from 5 years. And to tempt you even more this summer, WildPlay is now offering an exciting new promotion for daredevils who can’t get enough of the park’s signature zipline rides.


Originally opening in April for the current season, WildPlay Jones Beach is open now through the first week of November, and according to Adam Karp – General Manager of WildPlay Jones Beach – the park’s popularity with the public this year has only fallen by comparison increased on their already successful 2021 season.


“It was great! We’ve had even more visitors at WildPlay this year than ever before,” he said. “We got a lot of people who took an interest in who we are while walking down the boardwalk and seeing us tried it out, had a great time and spread the word.”


Exciting obstacles in WildPlay include walking ropes, climbing cargo nets, flying through the air on rope swings, jumping onto swinging logs, balancing on rickety bridges and more. WildPlay is located on the main promenade and is accessible from the parking lot at square four, although it is also easily accessible from squares five and six. The recommended age is five years and older.


The Flight Pass: Unlimited Zipline rides


Karp noted that in an effort to offer customers more bang for their buck, WildPlay Jones Beach is currently offering unlimited weekend zipline rides for the ultimate adrenaline junkies!

“We have a new promotion called Flight Pass that runs through Labor Day and it’s really fantastic,” he said. “We have a dedicated zip line and you usually buy a ticket for a ride. But now you can buy a flight pass for unlimited zipline rides for the whole day on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The Flight Pass is $50, and considering that a single zipline ride is $20, the Flight Pass is a really great deal.”


In addition to an all-day adrenaline rush, Flight Pass purchasers will also receive a custom flight pin souvenir and credit to use toward the purchase of park merchandise.


Bringing Art to Jones Beach


In an effort to further engage the community they are serving this year, Karp said WildPlay enlisted the services of a local artist to paint a mural in the park depicting many aspects of Long Island life and culture includes.

“We decided to do a project across all of our parks that would unify them all and embrace the unique aspects of the areas they are in,” he said. “To this end, we hired a local artist, Justin Oon, and he painted a mural on a 40ft storage container on site. We installed large paneling on the side to act as a canvas and Justin painted a 40ft long x 8ft high mural depicting WildPlay attractions along with local wildlife and iconic Jones Beach sights and landmarks.”


“The mural focuses on a giant whale leaping out of the ocean and people sliding off the whale into the park,” Karp continued. “It’s a really impressive piece and people seem to really enjoy it.”


Free field trips to WildPlay

To make WildPlay more accessible to kids on a budget, Karp also wants to spread the word about a currently available New York State grant program called Connect Kids to Parks, which provides fully-funded field trips to state parks and attractions.


“Public schools and nonprofits are eligible for this very easy-to-obtain grant, and they can actually get government funding to come to us…it’s essentially a free field trip,” he said.


Karp said that WildPlay might seem intimidating at first, but those who have the courage to try something different will find rewards, not just in terms of breakneck fun, but serious confidence-building as well.


“We’re here to help you test your comfort zone and what you can do with different types of obstacles, ranging from giant zip lines to a 40-foot drop, among others,” he said. “When we make someone experience something they never thought they would, it’s like nothing you’ve ever felt. It’s really metaphorical for life and the things that hold you back…don’t limit yourself and don’t tell yourself there’s something you can’t do.”


risk management practices


And for anyone who might feel a certain level of anxiety when it comes to scaling a tightrope or traversing a rope cargo network, Karp firmly believes that WildPlay puts the safety of its guests first, above all else.


“Our top priority is to ensure that we are doing everything we can to keep our customers safe, and to that end, WildPlay is actually much safer than many day-to-day activities that you typically participate in,” he said. “We have an amazing track record. The security cables we use to support our customers can hang a truck, so WildPlay is very, very secure.”


Karp offered a heartfelt “thank you” to WildPlay Jones Beach attendees for making the park such a huge success — both currently in 2022 and in the midst of the pandemic — and encouraged all who want to take a walk on the wild page, come on down and check it out.


“It’s been a blast to be a part of reopening and revitalizing the community and finally showing everyone what we’re about on a larger scale,” he said. “Everyone that came out was very supportive and super excited to challenge themselves and play with us.”
