WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo launches new Wild Flight aerial adventure
The WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo at Sydney’s Darling Harbour has launched WILD Flight, a new airborne experience that takes visitors on an exhilarating aerial tour above the living environments of some Australia’s most iconic animal species.
The new, self-propelled harnessed aerial tour enables children and adults to enjoy a bird’s eye view of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and its furry, feathered and scaled residents. During the aerial journey, visitors can spot kangaroos bouncing below, glide past princess parrots preening their feathers and even take a daring journey above Rex, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s huge five-metre saltwater crocodile.
Extending over 70 metres at heights between 9 and 15 metres above the ground, the latest new attraction was manufactured and installed for Merlin Entertainments by TouchCloud Global.
The new experience adds adventure to a day out at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, where visitors can already meet over 1,000 native Aussie animals and take part in over 25 keeper talks and animal encounters.
WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo General Manager, Steve Hinks explained “the new WILD Flight adventure makes a day out at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo even more fun-filled and enjoyable for kids and adults. We’re looking forward to welcoming families aboard our newest and most exciting adventure.”
On their website, TouchCloud Global explain “this unique tour is proving to have a very broad appeal, offering a relaxed easy self-paced opportunity to observe wildlife from the unique perspective of a bird/koala/bat or possum, as well as provide an opportunity for the adventurous to share an experience that stretches their comfort zone a little.
“This carefully planned activation of a previously unused space has injected a renewed vibrancy and energy to the aviary, whilst at the same time honouring the well-being and purpose of the exhibits.
“The quiet easily self-propelled nature of the tour celebrates and enhances the Zoo's existing offerings (and) value adds to the existing world class Zoo experience.”
WILD Flight can be riden by anyone above the age of seven years, although children under 12 years must be accompanied by a guardian. Height restrictions also apply.
