Rockin' Ropes Opening Weekend

Opening MLK Weekend, January 17-19
Open on weekends and school vacations, January 17 - June 14
Pachyderm Building

Calling all kids! The Zoo invites all Bay Area youngsters (4-14 years old) to enjoy the elevated ropes obstacle course "Rockin’ Ropes Adventure" in the Pachyderm Building. To keep everyone active and healthy for the new year, this challenging ropes course will be open on weekends and school holidays. Young visitors can zip, swing, jump, step, and slide their way through all 30 feet of fun; and for this Opening long weekend, we'll have a bounce-house obstacle course for the little ones. To check the Rockin' Ropes schedule each week, see our Calendar of Events

If you're planning an upcoming birthday party or group get-together, consider renting out Rockin' Ropes Adventure for the festivities (contact Development Events Manager Deb Howe at for more information). 

See you on the ropes!
