There has always been confusion over a great attraction located about an hour southeast of Orlando. For years, it was a conservation area known as Forever Florida Wildlife Conservation Area. The land is 4,700 acres in Osceola County and offers nature-lovers a look at Florida as it was and has been for decades.
The attraction began to offer Florida EcoSafaris which promoted the “theme park” in this manner. Horseback rides were the draw and the adventure began. Then in 2009 thrill-seekers were targeted with the addition of zip lines. These weren’t your ordinary zip lines – they were the first zip lines developed for flat lands in the entire world! Zipline Adventure included seven zip stretches and three sky bridges.
Forever Florida – Ziplines & Adventures in the Wild
So, is it a nature park? A zip line adventure? A conservation nature park? It is all of these and more. This spring, the various names we’ve been calling this Orlando attraction have been clarified into a new name for all of the offerings: Forever Florida – Ziplines & Adventures in the Wild. Not only will this help the attraction strengthen its brand, it will also help visitors to this area realize all of the opportunities offered there.
You will still be able to explore the conservation area with a two-hour Wild Coach Adventure tour. If you’d rather explore by horseback, sign up for the Horseback Adventure. Perhaps these are not enough to get your heart racing. If that is the case, go for the new Zipline Adventure Thrill Pack. You’ll get to experience four of the wildest ziplines:
- The Rattlesnake: the only zipline roller coaster in the USA
- The Peregrine Plunge: the longest single straightaway zipline in Florida
- The Panther Pounce: a 68-foot-high challenge tower that delivers a harrowing controlled fall
- The Swooping Crane: an extreme, free-fall swing where guests are released from a height of 55 feet.
