Owner description: Forever Florida has adventures for the whole family. You can conquer the treetop thrills of the Zipline Adventure or Thrill Pack, experience the pioneer-style adventure of the Horseback and Rawhide Roundup or just sit back, relax and take it all in on the all-ages Wild Coach Adventure. Each adventure offers a unique opportunity to leave the theme parks far behind and experience one of the most pristinely kept natural areas left in Florida. We've got so many ways to explore this amazing place. Sign up for Thrill Pack to conquer our biggest adventures including The Rattlesnake, the first zipline roller coaster in the USA!

Prepare to travel a bit into the sticks to visit this place, it really is in the middle of nowhere, but thats not a bad thing right? Had a 9am morning zip line safari, once you have checked in you get transported by an open bus to get suited up. Once you have had a small and informative intro it's time to climb up to the top. It's not too far up, about 70ft or so.

We were in a full group of 12, so it took a little longer to get round. But it's certainly a fun experience. The guys taking us around kept it fun and informative.

There is water available, which would be essential on a hot day!

Very little wildlife to be seen, but we expected that, it's more an adrenalin day than a nature day.

We've done similar things at GoApe in the UK and the GOApe day was more fun as you get to freestyle a little bit more, as this is very structured.

Prepare for it to be a good 4 hour day, and if you want to buy photo's at the end it's a $35 sale!

All in all a good experience, but maybe a bit more variety (which you can experience for an additional cost and booking)

I've just been on the 11/2 hour horse riding trail at Florida Eco safaris. We had a great time. There were six riders and the guide. The guide was punctual, very attentive and informative throughout the trail. The horses were very healthy and a bit frisky without being dangerous. We thoroughly enjoyed our time, and even though we saw no wildlife other than an alligator we weren't bothered because the trail was so interesting and miles from a road or car. I will definitely be going back with friends

Free-flying fun for all! This was my first zip-line adventure and for someone who can't enter an escalator without a couple of false starts this was quite a step out in faith. The Mr. had talked about doing this and i thought it would be a hoot so I said go for it. When I saw the open staircase reaching up over the tree tops, I knew this was definitely going to be an adventure. We had tickets for the whole kitten-caboodle. Best was the "Rattlesnake" I actually felt safe with the harnesses and instructor/guides even though we were hundreds of feet in the air. The Peregrine Plunge tested my mettle, but with a prayer and a leap I did it. Definitely a must do adventure!

EcoSafari was mine and my husbands last stop on our honeymoon. When we first got to the entrance we were a little worried about how "legit" this place was going to be. But once you get inside the main area you realize this place is less about the eye catching advertisement and more about the one on one experience you get. I'm surprised that the website doesn't explain or warn just how intense some of the zipline activities can be. Make sure you or anyone going is not afraid of heights at all. And most importantly don't expect to see any interesting animals other than cows and horses. I think the name EcoZiplining would be more fitting. Other than that if you have done your research and know what to expect you will enjoy it. Just don't go by the website because they don't update it enough for example the 13 ft alligator died a while back so you won't see him. All in all the zip lining and staff were really great just do you research!

Just an awesome experience for our first family zipline experience. Our teenage children did the Ecopark Admission, an all-day zipline adventure taking in the Zipline Safari ,Rattlesnake, Peregrine Plunge and Panther Pounce. Plan a full 9am-5pm day with a break for lunch in the lodge which was just awesome. The Burgers and Chicken Salad Sandwich were just awesome.
Staff are extremely helpful and friendly on check-in as were the zipline guides who ensure a safe ziplining experience for all. The safari buses were really cool as were the drivers who provide interesting facts about the wildlife and history of the park. Well worth the price of admission and by far the highlight of our Spring Break Vacation.
