Australia’s first Aerial Adventure Park has opened in Adelaide.
Situated at Adelaide Shores in West Beach, The MegaAdventure Aerial Park is a $2.5 million development, 30 months in the making.
It’s now open for visitors to climb the SkyMate – a 26 metre high structure that boasts 50 crossings which are graded like ski slopes that aim to challenge and excite in a fun and safe environment.
Alex Blyth, owner and Managing Director of the MegaAdventure Group said he was delighted to finally have the doors open.
“We are so proud to launch today. It has been a massive team effort and we are thrilled with the
final result. We are the first structure of its kind to launch in Australia and certainly one of the
largest in the world.
“We have used the latest technology for not only the design and build, but for all the harnessing
and equipment – your experience here really will be first class,” he said.
The impressive structure consists of scramble nets, rope bridges, beams, swings, log steps and
even an aerial row boat and picnic table.
“There are plenty of challenges to keep you entertained, but we also have the ability to easily
update, change and move crossings, on top of the additional 70 obstacles that will roll out over the
coming months,” said Blyth.
The Play & Go girls tried out the SkyWalk and had a lot of fun. See some of their pics here:
Some information for families:
Children need to be a minimum of 1.2 metres tall and 20kg in weight to be able to play on the SkyMate. Kids under 1.4 metres tall will need an adult to be actively supervising them on the structure ie they can’t go on by themselves.
The crossings will be graded like ski slopes, from easy to challenging, so will be accessible for people of all ages and abilities. If you’re not keen to have a go you can still climb the very safe steps and enjoy the views across Adelaide from the top, and watch the others, while keeping your feet firmly on the platform. You won’t need to have a harness if you are just observing.
The aim is to make this experience as universal as possible. As well as thrill-seekers they will welcome families, work groups, educational programs, schools and parties. There are even plans for the opportunity to host dinners at the top of the structure to take in the views.
There is a cafe on site too. This is all adjacent to the many facilities of Adelaide Shores so this will be a great activity for anyone staying there. West Beach Mini Golf is also right next door. Just a note – you do not need to be staying at Adelaide Shores to go to Mega Adventure Park.
The MegaAdventure Park is open from Friday 27 November 2015. Cost is from $5 per person to take a walk on the SkyMate and watch. Tickets for the MegaAdventure SkyChallenge where you get to take on all 4 levels of the SkyMate Aerial Obstacle course start from around $49 while it’s $10 (as of 2015) for the MegaBounce. It’s cheaper to book online (5% discount).
