The Victoria HarbourCats have teamed up with WildPlay and TELUS to install a 400-foot zipline to their already entertaining activities available during their West Coast League baseball games. The WildPlay Zipline is believed to be the only currently operating zipline of its kind during a baseball game—adding another great reason for you and your family to take in HarbourCats games, now in its 7th season!
For the first time in the history of the City of Victoria, a zipline attraction has been installed within city limits.
The zipline, located beyond the right field fence, running parallel to Cook Street, will run every HarbourCats home game, during games. And if you think this experience is only for kids, think again. One of the first to take a ride on opening day, was a 78-year-old season ticket holder!
“This is a big first and we want to thank the City of Victoria for sharing this vision of adding a major attraction at Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park,” said Jim Swanson, Managing Partner/GM of the HarbourCats. “A lot of work and coordination, spanning more than a year, has gone into this.”
“We look forward to expanding our WildPlay Victoria presence to include this exciting new experience. The zipline is going to thrill our guests and be a great new addition in the heart of the community,” said Tom Benson, CEO of WildPlay Element Parks.
