Everyone must do this. Beautiful views, so not expected in Florida. Take your whole family. Our guides were funny and ensured a very safe activity.

So we gave our adult children all gift certificates as Christmas presents, they coordinated their tour so the 6 of them went together and had a blast. Guess what we got this Christmas? Our very own gift certificates! Yes, I know it's August BUT we finally got a chance to book the tour. We recommend this as a terrific way... More

Awesome fun! Booked the $96 9 ride tour. Had great guides - safety first for sure. These guys have safety as a number one priority - but they know how to make this a fun tour. Would revisit.

My previous ziplining experience have been on mountains, so I never even expected to find ziplines in flat Florida. I was pleasantly surprised to find that The Canyons has setup a very fun course that zips you from tree to tree. You don't necessarily get the speed or drops you would get on a mountain-based zipline, but you also don't... More

I had to over come my fears of heights in order to have this most amazing experience, which Josephine ( the manager ) help me do. The two guys that gave us the tour were so understanding of my fears and made it easy for me. I feel quite proud of my self for going through with it. I would... More

If you've never been zip lining before this is a good place to start. Since Florida is so flat it's not the best place to go if you're a huge thrill seeker but it's the best in central FL.

This was our 2nd visit. We had the family with us this time. The guides Craig and Matt were awesome!!! Extremely safe and amazing adventure. We can't wait to go back. The next time we're going to do the night zip! Worth every penny spent. Would (and have) recommended this to everyone!

Visited the Canyons with my wife, daughter, dad, sister and her boyfriend. I always have high expectations especially when it comes to something that requires incredible safety. The people at Canyons...well...they blew my expectations out of the water! Our guides were excellent and when my daughter (12) hesitated on the first line they (in a calm, professional, non-condescending, and friendly... More

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had a fantastic time. We drove from Orlando but it was worth the drive and have yet to find a zip line in FL that beats this one. The staff were great and safety was priority. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to zipline.

My niece (24) and nephew (20) from Pennsylvania were visiting us in FL and wanted to go ziplining. I knew from a previous visit that the Canyons was THE place to go. The scenery is beautiful. Zipping over the canyon and water is breathtaking.The guides are a lot of fun, but serious about safety.This is an unforgettable nature adventure.
