The trip was worth every penny. The scenery was absolutely beautiful. Our guides, Richard and Shandrea, were a hoot! We were laughing throughout the trip.

Who’d have thought you could find 70-foot cliffs and limestone canyons that are just perfect for zip lining in the heart of Central Florida? This beautiful attraction near Ocala is in 100 acres of hilly forested terrain which was mined until the 1920s. What man and nature created between them is an awesome landscape of hills and valleys, sheer chalk... More

This was an awesome experience from start to finish! The staff are funny, friendly & upbeat, yet very safety-focused. There are plenty of zip runs with gorgeous views of the quarry cliffs & lakes. You won't believe you're in typically flat Florida. If you are afraid of heights, it may be a challenge, but it's well worth it. So much... More

We needed an excursion with three teenagers. We considered the typical Florida theme parks, but we decided we wanted something different. We hesitated a great deal on booking this tour because of the 96 per person price tag. The day was amazing! The zip lines were fast, fun and full of scenic beauty. Felt super safe too! This is our...

It was hard to believe that this place was in Florida. The canyon walls seem like more out of the west U.S. An old limestone quarry, long since abandoned, has been reclaimed by mother nature. You get to zip through the canyons and the forests surrounding them. So much fun! We zipped through the half tour which consists of five... More

My sister surprised me with this for my 56th birthday. Ziplining was on my "bucket list"!!! I am extremely afraid of heights, but felt very secure the entire time. Standing on the platform was more intimidating to me than actually ziplining! Matt and Kevin explained everything and made us all feel very safe. Beautiful scenery and a total adrenaline rush!...
