Zip Lining at The Canyons in Ocala, FL

Sat. 11/2, 10:00am, Zip Lining at The Canyons in Ocala, FL; We will meet at McDonalds on Old St. Augustine Rd. (by I-95) at 10:00am. This is the best zip lining in the state. There are 9 zip lines, some over 100 feet in the air, some over water. There are also 3 rope bridges and a 100ft. rappel down a canyon wall.  The weather is not an issue because there are rain shelters along the course. It takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes to get to The Canyons.

To sign up you have to go to and book a tour for yourself (and a guest if you wish). Book the time as 11/2/13 at 12:00pm. If that time slot is booked, take the next available one. You have to pay by credit card at that time. The cost is $89.00 per person.  Please also reply on the Sidetrackers Meetup site. The weekends get booked up, so don’t delay if you are interested. The morning of 11/2 is already getting booked, so that’s why we will hope to start the course at noon. The entire course takes about 3 hours. We go off in groups of 8. 

You will select your time slot when you book/pay for the tour online.  When you select your time slot, post it as a comment so that other Sidetrackers can try to join your group!! 

We probably won’t be leaving until around 3:00pm. I have been told that once you are on the course, you keep moving and there is no time to eat, so you might want to bring a snack to sustain yourself until after we leave.  We can find a place for a late lunch afterward.

Leader: Tim Scott, cell[masked]-3335.

    I did get some great video but I have to reinstall my Nero Video editing program before trimming it down to a manageable size

    This was the real deal! Lot's of fun. 40mph on some lines! And The Yearling Restaurant was terrific for a late lunch - didn't need dinner after that.

    Have to change my RSVP. I forgot I have a conference this weekend. I hate that I will miss this. I hope we do it again next year. See you all at the kite flying event on the 9th. Enjoy the zip lining!

    When you signed up and paid for your tour, The Canyons sent you all a Boarding Pass. Be sure to remember to bring it along. It's your ticket to the game :-)

    I've been in touch with The Canyons to see if we can get a group discount, but the way they bill, it won't work out. They have offered to give us each a copy of a group photo instead which is nice. This is going to be a great outing!

    I did zip lining while in Alaska this summer. The highest one was 600 ft and about a half mile long. We had 9 zips and 3 swinging bridge and was awesome in the rainy alaska rainforest. Have fun!!!

    Can't go this time, but went with a friend in April and had a blast! Awesome experience and great staff! Some of the lines are several hundred feet long and pretty fast! Very cool to zip over the old limestone quarry canyons, lakes and horseback riding trails. We ate at a good local joint they recommended; sorry, I can't remember the name. They get fantastic pics of individuals in mid-flight, on the platforms, etc. and put them on a CD. It's $40, but if everyone chips in, you can buy one and make copies (we did - it was worth it)!
