Guests explore the Philadelphia Zoo’s new WildWorks ropes course and zip line, May 7, 2019. HUGHE DILLON/FOR PHILLYVOICE
As reported by the Philly Voice, “There’s a new way to explore the Philadelphia Zoo.
It involves an obstacle course [and a zip line]. The Philadelphia Zoo opened their latest exhibit, the WildWorks ropes course, on Tuesday, May 7. Guests cross bridges, balance on ropes, climb through obstacles, and can take a quick zip 34-feet above the ground, all while safely hitched to a climbing harness. There’s also the WildWorks tykes system which enables children under 48 inches to explore and mimic the system used by bigger kids and adults.”
Hours for WildWorks are 10:00am to 4:00pm. Ticket prices vary from $4.00 to $10.00 and doesn’t include admission to the zoo. An unlimited attractions day pass is offered from $18.00 to $20.00 per person and includes access to all of the attractions at the zoo

What this could mean? I have previously covered the Philadelphia Zoo in the Buzz Boyz column of Tourist Attractions & Parks pointing out that Zoos are adding attractions and food and birthday parties to increase their target demographic. Zoos are quickly morphing to the family entertainment center sector. This is also a great account client for Ropes Courses, Inc. AEM has done a lot of business with RCI over the years and each of our clients loved working with them and so did AEM. In the next issue of The Redemption & FEC Report, we will be welcoming RCI to our Family. If you get a chance to be in Philadelphia, take an afternoon and visit WildWorks and you will see and experience a Sky Trail first hand!
