Experience nature on a whole new level at Brevard Zoo's new outdoor aerial adventure! Fun for all ages, test your skills on one of three courses enjoying varying degrees of challenges and, of course, zip lines. For thrill seekers, we recommend Treetop Challenge. For nature lovers, enjoy the Canopy Walk, and Chutes and Ladders is great for the kids. Open daily at 9 a.m. Zoo admission not required to experience Treetop Trek.

Y kidd have done this several times and they always have a good time. Be warned that this is a very high energy activity and especially on a hot day even the kids can getbworn out fast. You zip across the zoo and even over a gator pool which always gives me anxiety. They enjoy it and it is fun... More

I recommend getting here when they first open as there is a 30+ minute orientation and some parts are somewhat strenuous in the Florida humidity. This is a 3 hour, totally enjoyable trip above the zoo on swinging board walks, ropes, wires and zip lines. Shorter trips and ones for young kids available as well.

This was the first time our family had tried this so we signed up for the canopy walk. Participating were my 14 year old daughter (who's birthday we were celebrating), two of her friends, and myself (the proud dad!). We all had a wonderful time! Things got jammed up at the first zip line, but everyone was patient and remained... More

When my two nieces kids came for a visit decided on this as a day. They had been to the Zoo before and loved it. So after another tour of the zoo the girls and my niece went on the Treetop Line. The girls loved it!!!!!! so did their mother. I watched and took as many pictures as possible. Afraid... More

Recommend Black Diamond Challenge, an extravaganza of games and challenges intermingled with a fun filled maze of zip line adventures. I amazed myself! You will too. I felt like I was on the show Ninja Warriors. Awesome! Secure your camera for pictures in between challenges, your adventure is over the Brevard Zoo too. Cool! Sue from MA.

My husband and I did this as a date. I was terrified because I am scared if heights but the zoo crew was so helpful and informative I felt a lot better and im glad I did it because it was an awesome experience. Next time I'll do the high course

I had low expectations for this since I had seen the elevated pathways above the zoo exhibits in the past, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's amazing how you forget that you are clipped in to a safety line once there are no railings to hold onto. We did the course with 2 zip lines and it was enough, although... More

There are several obstacle courses that require different levels of effort including a children's course. You can also skip the obstacles and just do the ziplines, but the obstacles are fun and a bit challenging, so why not? Cost is a little high, but the zoo is nice too and you can make a day out of doing them both.

When up there for a birthday party. This was a great place for our party with people ranging from 9-60. The $50 course included the medium obstacle course and all the zip lines. It was a good little workout for an endurance athlete. I think i will go back and try the black diamond course next time but this time... More

I did not actually do the treetop trek but my family did (and twice now). This year our youngest took part and she LOVED the kid version! My nephew says the treetop is 'AWESOME'! He's had to entertain, so it must be good.
