Safari Park Plans to Show Visitors the RopesThursday, June 28, 2012
San Diego Zoo Safari Park near Escondido plans to debut a new aerial adventure feature, called Jungle Ropes Safari, on July 20.
Guests will be able to climb a rope path through a small tree forest and view surrounding vistas through the canopy, according to a June 25 statement from park operators. Three different courses will be available, allowing for a different experience on each visit.
There are more than 30 challenges along the courses, including rope bridges, ladders and swinging elements. Children must be at least 7 years old to participate.
Operated by the nonprofit San Diego Zoo Global, the Safari Park is home to more than 2,600 animals representing more than 300 species. More than half of its 1,800 acres have been set aside as protected native species habitat, according to the park’s website.
