I bought tickets for my boyfriend for his birthday. He had been ziplining before, but I had not, and it was a lot of fun! The first day we tried to go we got rained out, and we were given the option to reschedule, take a raincheck, or receive a full refund. We opted to reschedule for the next day... More

I have zipped four Florida Zip Lines and this is truly the most beautiful and easiest Zip Line. Usually zip lines require multiple steps. There are steps at The Canyons but they are minimal. The lines take you through lush trees and canyons and over water. It is an awesome experience! The guides are truly super and you even get... More

This was a meetup group that went to Canyons Zip Line near Salt Springs were we camped. I'm 65 and don't do heights well. So climbing up steps then getting hooked up to a line and then zipping across, was scary but fun after the 2nd line. I think I screamed on every line. They take approx 8 people at... More

The zip line consisted of 10 runs. There is also a run (extra) where you are using a hang gliding harness that looked fun too. The scenery was nice and the staff was wonderful. Highly recommended. The summer Florida weather can be hot and sticky so dress comfortably and prepare to sweat.

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.
