A most intriguing aspect of the experience was the human animal interactions and behaviours. Kids in the zoo below with their mums and dads pointed out the dangers. Exclaiming what’s coming up! Excitedly followed and cheering groups onwards and upwards. Their exuberance bouyed our own spirits of adventure. The first few technicalities called elements, each course with approx 17 were leisurely accomplished. We find once employees are into the swing of things. They love the challenge. Enough to get you focused, energised and thrilled. But not too much of scary obstacles. Each challenge element was overcome with teamwork, support of peers and encouragement.
Highlights on the Wild Ropes Fun Challenge Taronga Zoo Course included the Pogo Sticks, Criss Cross and X marks the spot where you manoeuvre around the poles that bar your path. The best fun on our team was The Sled, surfing the ropes on the Surfboard. Crossing the wombat and birds of prey pattern steps. I revelled in the trapeze elements, throwing ourselves a perfectly safe and picturesque platform overlooking Sydney Harbour. With views out to The Opera House, Botanic Gardens, Fort Denison, Mrs Macquaries Chair. We laughed at the spinning Jet Boats and waved to Ferry’s weaving up and down Port Jackson from Manly to Sydney’s Circular Quay.
It was bliss to escape the hub-bub of the city and corporate pace stress. The time out sharing a fun adventure experience only a 12 minute Sydney Ferry ride from Macquarie, George, Kent, Argyle and Pitt Streets. Puts this ropes course within easy reach of a 3 hour Sydney corporate team building activity. We suggest combining Taronga Zoo Birds of Prey Bird Show and other animal interactions as a package for your delegates to be even more impressed. The Wild Ropes Program can include catering options, beverages and a range of snacks easily organised through Thrill events.
For the less active or mobile watching the human interactions in a stunning wildlife environment was the biggest pleasure. As those that stay on the ground can talk to their super person and spider monkey colleagues climbing through the tree tops in a civilised manner.
Extra features at the Zoo tree tops adventure was integrating selfie technology with real time real life photos where you can be calm, casual or show the whites of your eyes as you hit the button.
