Swing past trees and climb through obstacles like a high-climbing animal this summer.
The Philadelphia Zoo introduced a new 34-foot high zip line and rope course called WildWorks on Tuesday, May 7.
The WildWorks course by Independence Blue Cross features two courses: one for adults or more experienced climbers and one for kids.
During the 20- to 25-minute experience, daring climbers can cross bridges, balance on ropes, climb through obstacles and zip line to the bottom of the course.

Participants won’t need to purchase admission to the zoo to experience the rope course, and tickets for the experience range from $4 to $10.
For kids under 48 inches, there will be a “tykes” system that simulates the course on a smaller scale.
"This is such an exciting time for Philadelphia and the Zoo,” the Zoo’s chief marketing officer Amy Shearer said in a announcement about the attraction. "There is literally something new around every corner of the Zoo this spring and summer."
WildWorks will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and weekends.
