Theme park opens Orlando’s Wildest Zip line
ORLANDO, Fla.–Gatorland is soaring to new heights in Central Florida as the theme park opens the world’s first zip line to race above giant alligators and crocodiles in the all new Screamin’ Gator Zip Line at Gatorland.
This one-of-a-kind ride takes you on a breathtaking journey along 1,200 feet of high flying adventure from platforms designed to replicate the Breeding Marsh Tower. At heights up to 56 feet, guests will fly at speeds near 30 miles per hour through the park! An adrenaline rush guaranteed to bring out the true adventurer in everyone.
The Screamin’ Gator Zip Line at Gatorland will carry the brave riders in length from 230 feet to more than 500 feet over some of the most exciting exhibits at Orlando’s only theme park with “Bite & Attitude.” On just your second leg of the journey, you’ll soar above the theme park’s collection of jumping Cuban Crocodiles. What’s up next? A bird’s eye view of the Alligator Breeding Marsh featuring over one hundred and fifty giant alligators watching your every move!
“We spent a tremendous amount of time designing this incredible experience that combines the most modern safety features available in a zip line with the raw beauty and excitement of Gatorland’s natural exhibits and majestic animals,” says Mark McHugh, Gatorland’s president & CEO.
The 45-minute experience includes a brief orientation session, a nature walk through the swamp, five breath-taking zips and an exciting swinging bridge for only $69.99, which includes all day admission to the “Alligator Capital of the World.”
The construction of the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line is being managed by Global Expeditions, Inc., a privately owned company specializing in the development of exhilarating ecotourism adventures for major corporations, the entertainment industry and organizations offering unique experiences that create unbelievable memories.
