If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled day during your visit to Miami, skip the beach and hit one of the city’s heart pounding action parks.

Find all kinds of unforgettable experiences like virtual reality escape rooms, extreme rock climbing, ninja training and even bungee jumping with the Miami skyline as your backdrop – talk about an Instagrammable moment.
Here is a look at some of the most exciting and action packed entertainment centers Miami has to offer. You may need to book a later flight to cram in as many as your itinerary can handle.
Jungle Island has long been a staple of Miami’s nature attractions scene and is currently undergoing an intense transformation into a true adventure and action park. The park’s transformation will start rolling out in late spring 2018 and continue throughout the year. Get ready for a bigger and better Jungle Island for kids and adults alike, with an indoor-state-of-the-art trampoline park, the Tree Walk Village – an aerial play and rope course like no other, an outdoor skydiving wind tunnel, escape rooms, and even a beachside restaurant when you are ready for some downtime.
Jungle Island will be all grown up with the third phase of the transformation scheduled to be completed in 2019. This part of the renovations will include a five zip-line experience where you will be able to overlook PortMiami and beautiful Downtown and the beaches, a Crystal Lagoon, and a lazy river.
The two-acre Crystal Lagoon is perhaps the most dramatic new feature of the park and will be designed not only for swimming and leisurely recreation, but also for sailing, paddleboarding, kayaking and other water sports. There’s even talk of adding a bungee jump over the lagoon for serious adrenaline junkies.
You can also look forward to a private beach club, new waterfront restaurants and a renovated banquet hall for corporate and private events.
