The Rattlesnake
This is next generation ziplining like you’ve never experienced before! This first of its kind ride in the USA will take you screaming through the trees, swinging, swooping, jumping and dipping through 1000ft feet of thrilling adventure. Launching from a 65 foot high platform, you won’t know what’s coming next as you fly at speeds up to 20 mph through the treetops on a nature inspired roller coaster-style zipline. Is it a zipline? Is it a roller coaster? It’s both and it’s absolutely amazing! Check out the video on the top right of this page for a preview of this must experience adventure!

Peregrine Plunge
Brace yourself for the longest single straightaway zipline in Florida. From a height of 71 feet, you’ll soar at 30 miles per hour down 1300 feet of extreme zipline! You’ll feel just like a peregrine falcon as you lift from your perch and dart out through the pine flatwoods and over the prairie toward your distant prey. It’s an amazing flight that will have you screaming from the start and leave you in awe of the breathtaking views of the conservation lands.

Panther Pounce
The Florida Panther is known to leap from heights up to 18 feet but we expect a lot more from our human visitors. Your challenge is clear on this challenge tower. Muster up the courage to step off a 68’ platform into a thrilling but safely controlled freefall to the ground below. It’s a first of its kind adventure in Florida and an extreme one at that! Once you get up the nerve to make the leap, it’s pure thrills from there! C’mon, let’s show those Florida Panthers how it’s done!

Other activity options available include:

Zipline Adventure: Prepare yourself for a brand new tree-top nature tour like none other. This thrilling Zipline experience, the first and only of its kind in Florida, allows you the perfect aerial vantage point to learn about Florida’s diverse ecosystems on a one-of-a-kind adventure. Along the two and a half hour journey, you’ll soar through the tree tops, 55 feet off the ground, and make your way across sky-bridges while learning about Florida’s natural flora and fauna from your expert guide. Brace yourself for the sensation of flight as you Zipline smoothly through Pine Flatwoods and over wetlands and prairie, home to native Florida wildlife including alligators, black bears, white tail deer and the endangered Florida Panther, all at speeds up to 25 miles per hour!

Horseback Adventure: Forever Florida boasts some of the best horseback riding in Central Florida. The historic trails were first traveled on horseback by Native Americans back in the 1500’s. Enjoy one and 1/2 hours of scenic riding through the 4700 acre Forever Florida wildlife conservation area through 7 different Florida ecosystems. Your adventure even includes a trip through the headwaters of Bull Creek and a relaxing stop at a beautiful boardwalk in the middle of Florida’s wilderness.

"It's not a theme park and, boy are we glad!"
October, 2015
Forever Florida is an improbable place seemingly located about a mile and a half from nowhere. Particularly if you've had a steady diet of theme park crowds, you'll find the location, somewhere in Kenansville away from most modern conveniences, really refreshing. We did the zipline, and for a couple of senior citizen first-timers, this had the potential to terrify. Truth be told, it did terrify, but the two guides used just the right kind of confidence-inspiring pep talks and truly funny jokes -- to make sure we not only survived the order, but actually enjoyed it.

Full disclosure here: Forever Florida is a place that celebrates the forests and plains of unspolied Florida, and you might be tempted to think that you'll see lots of wildlife as you tool along 60 or 70 feet above the ground. Well, it is possible you'll see animals and birds, but mostly what you'll enjoy is scenery, and the ability to take in the 'big picture' of what the unspoiled Florida interior is really like.

The Forever Florida folks also offer tours in vehicles in which guests sit on the second level of buses, with a nice view of the surrounding area. The trips are led by naturalists who help make sure you get to see everything there is to see. I know this because a mini-version of the trip is how guests get to the zipline location. Even in that brief journey, it was clear that the bus tour is a really nice way to see the area and all that it offers. Next time we visit, we'll take the full tour.

We felt really good about the fact that our visit to Forever Florida supports a nature conservancy set up to preserve that section of Old Florida. We cannot recommend it enough.

Tip: Bring insect repellent, especially if you are one of the people on whom the bugs love to gnaw. You are out in the wilds with all sorts of possibilities for bug bites. Also, make sure you have a camera.

"Forever Florida"
February, 2015
What a great day at Forever Florida. I purchased 4 tix on Reserve Orlando for a full day of ziplining and for the Adventure pack. Our group included people that had never ziplined before, to an experienced army parachuter with hundreds of jumps. The staff (Tony and Eli) was wonderful with everyone and assured everyone had a fantastic time!! We will be back for horse riding and maybe even an overnight stay!

"7 Line Zip "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed February 21, 2018 NEW
Did the 7 line zip with my boyfriend for our anniversary and it was an amazing experience. The first leap is definitely the scariest, wasn’t sure i was going to bring myself to do it but I’m glad I did. Tour guides (Dylan and ? cant remember his name) were very patient and personable. Guides kept cracking jokes and it really eased everyone’s fears. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good adrenaline rush. Pictures are $33 but you get a jump drive with the pictures of everyone in your group. Go pro rental is $22.

The zip lines were amazing! The staff was well-trained, courteous and fun to be with. This is a great thing to do with teenagers. We love lunch and eating hamburgers from cows raised on the ranch. Definitely worth the money.

"Buggy trail ride"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 01, 2018
We had bought the Orlando Explorer Pass and this was one of the activities we did. I am so glad we took the time to drive from Orlando to see it. Forever Florida was started by two parents in honor of a child they lost. From the beginning, you feel the love of a mother and father as well as their love of the land. They have a working ranch and you get to see a lot of animals and learn about nature. Our guide, Jennifer, was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Great place.

Reviewed December 30, 2017
The walking horse trail was a lot of fun. The photos were taken by one of the staff members so we could enjoy the ride and not fuss try to take picture. The lead rider girl (I forgot her name!) was so patient and very informative. We only found out later that there was so much more to do here! We could have spent days going on adventures. If we ever return to Florida we will be back!

"Beautiful Nature in Florida"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed December 27, 2017
Until my husband surprised me on my birthday with a trip to Forever Florida, I had never heard of this place before. I could not believe that such magnificent nature existed in Florida. The main activity that he took me for was zip lining, which neither of us had ever done before. At first (and second), we were a bit nervous about it, since heights is not our cup of tea but, after a few tries, we got a little more confident with it. To be quite honest, once we got comfortable, it was really fun. The other activity we did was horseback-riding. That was really fun too. The guided ride was about an hour and a half and it took us through all the beautiful nature. All along the way, there were all kinds of animals. It was, truly, a pleasant ride, which we would do all over again. While we were preparing for our zip lining session, we noticed that they had a lot more activities, one of which we are quite interested in - camping. We have plans to go back in the coming year to do that, as well as some more horseback-riding, of course.
