Zip lining is the top-rated activity in the St Cloud Area, and for good reason! The courses offer fun, thrills, and games for all ages. Zip lines allow you to view nature from a unique and new perspective. Secured via a harness to a series of long lines spanned from tree to tree throughout the forest, you blast down the line at heights of 20 to 80 feet!
Forever Florida in St. Cloud is one of the coolest and most diverse zip line adventure parks in the state! Not only do they have miles of fun zip lines, they also have a 78 foot assisted free fall, horseback riding, animal viewing and more! There is a ¼ mile zip line where you reach speeds of over 30 mph and is a highlight for the adventure seekers among us. The standard zip line course is 2.5 hours long and loads of fun, and requires no previous experience to ride.
Rattlesnake Adventure Park
The other zip line course is called the Rattlesnake Adventure Park. They have parallel zip lines, where you can race your friends. And a national first, zip line roller coasters. If that’s not adventurous enough for you, Forever Florida offers nighttime zip line action on Saturday nights. The only thing more exciting than flying through the sky is doing so in the dark.
For those of us who like to keep our feet firmly planted on the ground, there is even a trail buggy tour. It’s kind of like a safari, except right here in central Florida! At two hours in length, you will get a chance to observe many beautiful animals and more! Another buggy tour takes you to the central Florida animal reserve, where big cats like lions, tigers, cougars, and leopards roam. Once there, you will have a chance to get off the buggy and tour the facility on foot.
The Big Cat Trail Buggy Adventure totals two and a half hours. They have a fully operational ranch, where you will have a chance to take lessons on horseback riding, and even rustling cattle. Essentially the ranch experience offers you to step into the shoes of a real-life cowboy, and get to do some of the fun things that are involved in the daily upkeep of a ranch. A lunch is included with this experience, and you get to take the cowboy hat home. This immersive experience requires a reservation, so call ahead of time and book today.
Yeeehaw! Another fantastic attraction is horseback camping. Ride deep into the wilderness on a 3-hour horseback tour to a remote campsite, where a hefty steak dinner awaits you and you’re weary from the trip cowboy and girl companions! The campsite is equipped with running water, electricity and restroom facilities for your convenience. After a sleeping under a starry sky, you awake to a hearty breakfast before the ride back to the barn. If overnight is too much for you, there is also a 1.5-hour horseback tour through vast landscapes of unspoiled Floridian wilderness.
