30Minutes -45 mins

(Depending on how you can adapt to the walking)

Staffs are located at the sky net to assist you, you can ask them to help with photo-taking, they will be there for you too if you are afraid or scared of the heights, they will hold onto your hand and walk you through it.

As the ticket is only for per entry, staff would recommend you to walk back and return to the exit again to enjoy the fullest of the sky net.

My Thoughts:

The Manulife Sky Nets – Walking is not as easy as we thought it would be. The word “walking” sounds easier than bouncing, but we are wrong, the walk is also a huge challenge, not only it requires walking but balancing too. If you fear of height, do not go! The holes between the net are huge and my shoes caught in between the net a few times. Surprisingly, most of the kids there really enjoyed themselves and having fun running and walking around without any problems, even though we did hear a few of them began to cry when going up the net.

Overall:

Kids would love this place a lot as they can play the whole day inside the canopy park. I think for a $4.50 ticket to the canopy park with an unlimited entry within the day is worth it. You can visit in the late afternoon, have your dinner and return at night to experience different atmosphere and vibe of the Canopy Park. I will revisit it again with my friends and family, but next time I might not get the bundle package again. Will purchase ala carte or maybe a combo, as hedge and mirror maze visit it once is good enough.
