New at Forever Florida - Ziplines & Adventures in the Wild: Thrill Pack includes Rattlesnake, Peregrine Plunge, and Panther Pounce.

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. Your expert guide is there to help you find your way to the best spots and to make sure you don’t miss a single opportunity to spot wildlife. Horses are personally matched to each individual’s personality and level of riding experience so first-timers are welcome.

Enjoy a two-hour journey into the real Florida beginning with a trip through a picturesque Florida ranch, featuring a living museum of Spanish Colonial Cattle and Florida’s unique Cracker Horses. Your eco-safari will take you on an adventure deep into the 4700 acre Forever Florida wildlife conservation area preserved just as nature intended. This pristine site boasts 9 distinct Florida ecosystems and an endless array of natural flora and fauna including alligators, black bears, white-tail deer and nearly two hundred species of birds.

"HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE"
April, 2018
None of the 5 in my party had ziplined in a controlled setting before but had done what we call Hillbilly ziplining back home, which our guides Ricky and Dylan got a kick out of us explaining to them what that entailed. We all had a really great time on the 7 zipline adventure and can't wait to go back next year and do the Rattlesnake Adventure Pack. Our guides Ricky and Dylan were awesome and really made it a fun and memorable outing. THANK YOU AND SEE YOU NEXT YEAR

"GREAT TIMES!!"
March, 2018
Arriving there, we wasn’t sure what to expect, but the zip line team was great! Very energetic and fun! It helped make the experience much more relaxing. Also I love grass fed meat and they had a really good place to eat with it! The food was good, the souvenirs ranged from low to high so they fit in anyone’s range. Also we saw a few alligators in the waters while driving on the huge bus thing! I would definitely do it again!

"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!

Forever Florida is a great place to visit! My husband has been talking about zip lining for several years and we finally did it today. We decided to do the 7 Zip Line Adventure. I was a tad apprehensive because I am afraid of heights. Our guides, Chris and Paul, made me feel comfortable and helped me get over my fears. They were super friendly and helpful. They provided detailed instructions before we started and assisted us with any questions we had. At the end, I was so amazed at how much fun I had. Even the buggy ride to the zip line area was fun and informational. We also saw a few animals along the way. We’re planning another Orlando trip in November and we are definitely coming back to go zip lining.

This is my second visit to Forever Florida. We went for the morning Buggy Tour. Since we had time to spare before the tour departed, we wandered the grounds and was lucky enough to observe a ranch-hand training a horse. Afterwards, we were given the opportunity to take pictures with the horse and she kept nuzzling me! A great experience. Next, we went on our tour with Patty. There was a family on the tour whose boys wanted to see an alligator. Patty was able to point out many gators. Along with gators, we saw a variety of birds, deer, cattle and a days-old calf. We finished our visit with lunch at their restaurant. They offer burgers and sandwiches. The staff we encountered was friendly and accommodating. Love that they are protecting Florida land.

We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and we all had a blast. None of us had zip-lined before so we all were pretty nervous but the tour guys Shawn and Paul were awesome and made the experience 10xs better! We did the 7zip adventure and we will definitely be back in time to try out the other zip lines.

My husband and I visited Forever Florida for the Rattlesnake Adventure zipline and had such a great time. All the staff were really friendly and very funny! We got collected by a buggy driven by one of our guides Shawn (hilarious guy!) and gave us a descriptive tour of the grounds and wildlife on the way to the zipline area. When we reached the zipline area, we had two further guides Chris and Beth join us to assist with getting us ready for the course. We climbed the stairs to the top of the 80ft tower, and had the Pouncing Panther to do first (scariest one!) and they were very patient in waiting for me to choose when to jump off (harnessed up obviously!) The second part was the Roller Coaster Zipline which was so fun, then lastly the long zipline which has to lines so you can race each other. We wouldn’t hesitant to recommend this place to friends and family to visit. There’s loads more to do there and we’ll most certainly be visiting there again on our next trip back to Florida. Thank you again Shawn, Chris and Beth for making it such an enjoyable day. Claire and Glenn x
