How Much Fun are Zip Lines, Anyway?

Bulldog loves to zip. Only done it three times but I’m going again when I get the chance. I’ve done the one at The Central Florida Zoo. It’s good, but too many rope ladders and assorted obstacles between zips. Most of the zippers are kids; I was, without a doubt, the oldest dude on the course that afternoon. It was exhausting. Fun and exhausting.

The TreeUmph Adventure course in Bradenton is fun. The final zip there is a doozie! Had a good time that day; the crew was very helpful and friendly. I would go back, but I may never be in that part of the Sunshine State again.

The one at Gatorland Zoo here in Central Florida is my fave, without a doubt. Four zips, but much higher than most and not too many rope ladders to get to the good parts! And their crew rocks! The best zip experience I’ve ever had, without a doubt. I am going back, perhaps on the next vacation.

If you’ve never zipped, give it a try. I had a ball. I’ve really enjoyed my three times jumping out of an airplane, too. That will be the subject of another post. Zipping comes close to the thrill of skydiving and it’s much easier on the pocketbook.

    • I think you’d love it! The one drawback is that, unlike the CFZ, you have to get a package that includes park admission. I don’t remember the details, but in Sanford you have the option to zip and not do the zoo or have any “zoo costs” at all. I don’t remember the money part, but i think it comes out higher at G’land. Having said that, it is waaaaaaay better than the other two i’ve done… Thnx for coming around to have a look. See you around some time….
