Child on ZooRopia

Adventure ropes course for all to enjoy!

ZooRopia is an adventure ropes course that gives visitors a unique opportunity to swing alongside some of our most popular inhabitants – gibbons, gorillas and lemurs.

Designed for anyone aged five+ and over 1.1m's, including those with special needs, ZooRopia takes you on an exciting route around the centre of the zoo, traversing 17 sections themed around tree-dwelling animals. This includes a net ramp, a plank bridge, hanging tyres, looped vines, hanging logs and a balance beam, before finishing with a thrilling zip wire onto the zoo’s main lawn.
