Adventure is my middle name! I thrive on new experiences, meeting new people, and having a blast. So it was no big surprise to my husband that I jumped on the opportunity to go to Canyon Zip Line and Canopy Tours when Kevin’s family invited us! Zip Lining in Florida you say?
Believe it or not, there is a really great place to zip line right in Ocala! The place is called Canyons Zip Line & Canopy Tours. The staff is not only well trained but they also provide you with some really bad jokes and a lot of fun along the way! This organization has been featured on Fox News, ABC, NBC, and National Geographic. We did the Full Zip/Canopy Tour which includes 9 zip lines, 2 rope bridges and a rappel which lasted for approximately 2 ½ hours.
The zip line you’re seeing me on in the video is the longest and fastest zip line of the 9. I was doing approximately 50 miles per hour over the water! What a blast!! After we finished that, I decided to do the Super Zip which was so incredible. You’re strapped into a harness and suspended from the zip line so that you are belly down. It was the closest I have ever gotten to
feeling like I was flying like a bird, and it was exhilarating! The ride was ¼ mile long over water and trees. I absolutely loved it!
The only thing I didn’t do while we were there was go horseback riding through the 100 acre property! Oh well, maybe next time. For more information on how to have a blast with family and friends and confront your fear of heights (like I did) visit zipthecanyons.com.
