I mean really, who could not have fun doing this?
*Flying through the air in this picture is one of my housemates (Nicole.)
I do have to admit, when we first saw the tower and the stairs we had to climb to get to the top of the first platform, we were a little freaked out! But, after the first zip line we were all hooked.Actually, I loved this so much, I'm planning on taking my family back to do this 2 1/2 hour zip line course again, as soon as my kids are big enough. (They do need to be at least 10 years old and 70 pounds to ride the zip line.)
From Florida EcoSafaris Website:
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.
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 forested wetlands, home to native Florida wildlife including alligators, black bears, white tail deer and the endangered Florida Panther.
*This last picture was taken by my housemate (Candy) and was my favorite part of the course. On one of the ziplines, we flew right over this 13 foot alligator! Yep, I was brave enough to zipline over an alligator.... that makes me sound really cool. :)
Thank you Florida EcoSafaris for letting us experience this amazing adventure with you!
