The adventure pass lets you glide across the 1,000-foot Rattlesnake zipline roller coaster, which, according to the Orlando Sentinel, is the first zipline roller coaster in the United States, and pedal through the treetop in the Cypress Canopy Cycle. Zip across the Peregrine Plunge—one of the state’s longest straightaway ziplines—at 30 miles per hour, swoop back and forth through the trees with the Swooping Crane free fall, and leap off a 68-foot platform in a controlled free fall to the ground with the Panther Pounce. The adventure pass also gets you access to the newly renovated Zipline Safari, a 2.5-hour zipline adventure that reaches heights of 68 feet and speeds of 30 miles per hour. The full-day adventure takes six to eight hours to complete all the attractions. Guests should wear closed-toe shoes and pants no shorter than just above the knee to satisfy safety requirements and judgmental nanas. Cameras must be outfitted with shoulder straps.
Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida
Visitors to Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida get a close look at the state's distinct flora and fauna during thrilling outdoor adventures. The Coach Safari whisks riders on a two-hour open-air jaunt through a 4,700-acre wildlife-conservation area rich with streams and forests. Naturalist guides delve into the natural history of the region's nine ecosystems, which house species including alligators, Florida panthers, and herds of roving photo opportunities. Visitors can also take in sweeping views of the nearby wetlands and their many residents, including countless kinds of birds and white-tailed deer. For equestrian adventurers, safaris on horseback take riders through scenic trails used by Native Americans in the 1500s.
Florida EcoSafaris' EcoPark adds to its Cypress Canopy Cycle adventure-which sends visitors rolling along steel cables in a suspended, pedal-powered cart that doubles as a spy machine for squirrels-with five new and recently renovated zipline adventures. Guests fly high through the air at 30 miles per hour with the Peregrine Plunge and Zipline Safari or leap off 55- or 68-feet platforms during controlled-free-fall adventures. No matter what activity guests participate in, Florida EcoSafaris donates a portion of all proceeds to the Allen Broussard Conservancy, an agency dedicated to the preservation of Florida's ecosystems and wildlife.
