Ziplining at Forever Florida

Steve on sixth zip line

Well, we all get older each year, or at least hope we do. This year for Mr. CurbCrusher marks 49 of them on the planet, and Lady and Little CurbCrusher decided that birthdays are about experiences. So for my experience I choose to go zip lining at Forever Florida. Forever Florida is a chunk of real Florida located on US-441 between Holopaw and Yehaw Junction. It takes a few minutes to drive out there, but it is worth it.

Our trip was during the middle of week in the middle of January. A great time to avoid crowds, as we were the only three people on our zip line tour. It starts with you getting kitted up in a harness and helmet. Your guides then take you to a large tower and up you climb. You then spend the next hour working your way through the seven zip lines that take you to the ground level. Along the way there are a couple of suspension bridges that you get to cross and you get a view of some large gators as you zip across their habitat.

All in all it was a great way to spend a day. Forever Florida has other things to do like horseback riding and a swamp buggy tour. They’ve also opened up the first zip “roller coaster” since we were there. If some one is in Orlando and looking to do something other than theme parks and outlet shopping centers, Forever Florida is and alternative to explore.
