One of the best zipline tours I've had...so good it's a New Year's Eve tradition now. The views over the old quarry are spectacular. Zips are thrilling. Staff is always a blast. Ocala is a perfect stop before the turnpike splits off I75. Get out of the car and really stretch your legs by zipping through the trees and canyons.... More

The zip line is set over an old dig sight from the 20's. The over growth has made it a lagoon setting to zipline through. No other sight like this in Florida. It was my family's first zip line experience and it won't be the last. The staff was fantastic, we loved our tour guides Clay and Denise they were... More

The Canyons were a wonderful experience my boyfriend and I endeavored this past summer. We had a wonderful team help us through our journey in the canyons of Ocala, Florida.

This was my second visit to The Canyons, and I loved it. I've ziplined elsewhere, but these guys are the best. Very safety conscious, funny, capable. Unique views--unlike anything else in Florida. I'm planning on returning for my 60th birthday--it keeps me feeling alive and young.
