Treetop Tykes Trail

An all-new ropes course experience for our youngest adventurers.

Kids too little for Treetop Trail? Now, there’s an adventure just for them!

Children under 48 inches tall will zig, zag, climb, walk, and balance as they navigate a series of rope ladders, bridges, nets, and tightrope-style foot lines with parents or guardians by their side. Walk alongside your child and provide any assistance they may need without having to climb over or under any of the elements. Participants will be safely secured and tethered with a full-body harness and sling line to an overhead tracking system.

This experience will only be open to children under 48 inches tall and will be available as an add-on to Zoo admission. This experience will not be included as part of the All-Rides Wristband or Fun Pass. Guests may enjoy this experience for up to 30 minutes.

NEW! Purchase a ticket for Treetop Tykes Trail with your General Admission ticket or Membership. Valid on the date of redemption.
