Zip Line Safari ( 4 hour trip)

Well I know that everyone wants something a little different, so here we go! See the wilds of Forever Florida like never before - from high up in the treetops! Our NEW Zipline Safari will take you on a two and a half hour adventure like none other, reaching heights of 55 feet and speeds up to 25 mph. You'll sail above it all on this breathtaking aerial nature tour - a network of cables designed to send thrill-seekers flying through Pine Flatwoods and over wetlands, home to native Florida wildlife including alligators, black bears, white tail deer and the endangered Florida Panther. Zip through Forever Florida You'll start with a short hike along a scenic section of the Florida Trail, one of only eight National Scenic Trails in the US, as you head toward the launching point of the zipline course. Led by an expert guide, you'll "zip" among the trees from platform to platform along a system of seven high-tension cables. The breathtaking aerial view of the wilderness will be the perfect vantage point to spot wildlife and experience Florida's ecology. Adding to the adventure, the course includes two sky-bridges passing over a slough, a type of forested wetland. The final zip brings you to ground level near our wildlife interaction area which features a panther-hybrid, a close relative of the endangered Florida panther, alligators and other animals. Spend some time with them and then catch the next safari coach transport back to the visitor center.
Safari consists of 7 "zips" and 2 sky- bridges over 3 different ecosystems Dual line setup Duration - 2 1/2 hours Maximum height - 55' Maximum speed - 25 MPH Longest run - 750 feet 9 Observation Platforms Pricing: $85 for adults and children ages 10 years and older who meet the 70 lb minimum weight and 275 lb maximum weight Please note that participants must wear closed-toe shoes and pants no shorter than just above the knee.

    I cannot tell you all how incredibly awesome this event was! I was really scared, being a Tarzan woman was not previously inclusive in my life script. But with the encouragement and comraderie of all that attended, I was able to overcome a pretty substantial fear and bond friendships that are bourne of a challenging event. I am thrilled to have attended, and look forward to more adventures with some really nice people. Our only limits are those we accept, let's continue to bring out the best in each other!

    This was FUN, FUN, Fun!! What an awesome place! Very well organized and a beautiful piece of old Florida. Zip line was scary at first - then once I stepped off into thin air and flew instead of fell I knew I was going to be okay and loved it!

    Oh my God....this was the most fun I have had in a long time!! The first zip was real scary (especially the first step off the platform), but then I was hooked!! The grounds were beautiful, the guides awsome, and the zips and bridges were tantalizing!! lol We even had lunch there at their restaurant and the food was great, company even better!! Hats off to the ones who thought of this trip and organized it!! Great job, Adventurers!!!
