ZOOm Air's aerial adventure courses are deftly woven into the forest of the blackwater river floodplain swamp that is home to the Zoo. The design of our courses is integrated with the natural environment, inspired by the trees and the flow of the terrain and flora. Become an arboreal animal, as you swing, climb, balance, and zip from tree to tree. Get a bird's-eye view of the land below as you travel in the trees over dancing logs and tight wires, across rope bridges, nets, and suspended disks. Feel your adrenaline pump as you conquer abundant treetop challenges, including exhilarating rides on our zip lines. Meanwhile, your perches in the trees offer an opportunity to see flora and fauna not found on the ground, and to get a feel for what it's like to live in the trees. A ZOOm Air adventure is a great outing for families, friends, or co-workers. This entertaining, self-propelled attraction gives both nature lovers and challenge seekers the opportunity to enjoy the thrill of adventure in Seminole County. We provide you a harness system and train you to use it. Then we send you off into the trees to resurrect your inner child, overcome your fears, and explore the world from a new perspective, while our thoroughly trained park operators monitor your activities from below. As a reward, finish off the games with a series of wild zip lines! The shorter set can enjoy ZOOm Air adventure, too, on our safe-but-exciting Kids' Course. And if we didn't wear you out completely (and we often do), while you're there, visit the Zoo. You may see some genuine arboreal animals, and kids love to cool off at the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground at the Zoo. Amenities: Parking; restrooms; gift shop selling souvenirs, bottled water, pre-packaged snacks, insect repellent, and shoe rentals for those visitors showing up in flip-flops. Full food concessions are available inside the Zoo. less
