Forever Florida made history back in January 2009 when they opened the first full scale zipline canopy tour in the state of Florida. Now they are ready to make history again as they introduce Cypress SkyCycle, a groundbreaking ecotourism experience to Central Florida visitors and a welcome addition to their already popular zipline eco-safari.
Instead of zipping through Florida’s wildlife, guests can now take a relaxing cycle ride through the treetops of the 4700 acre Forever FloridaWildlife Conservation Area.
Slated to open in July 2011, the Cypress SkyCycle was developed by ECO‐Adventure Technologies and has been successfully operated for 4 years at the Hidden Worlds Adventure Park in Tulum,Mexico. Forever Florida’s Cypress Cycle will be the first of its kind in the United States.
The new attraction is a one hour journey through Florida’s Outback. Some of the area is so dense you can’t even reach it by foot! But with the specially designed SkyCycles, the trek is going to breeze on these reclining bicycles suspended from a network of high tension steel cables some fifty feet from the ground.
The Forever Florida’s eco-safari encompases five different ecosystems including a winding journey over the pine flatwoods, forested wetlands and even a pass over a pond housing George, a popular thirteen foot alligator that has called Forever Florida home for the last sixty plus years.
Tickets for the new Cypress SkyCycle will be $45 per person. Participants will need to be at least 10 years old and weigh no more than 275lbs. Adventurers will be able to save with a combination Zipline Safari and Cypress SkyCycle ticket for just $120, a $10 savings.
Other adventures offered by Florida EcoSafaris at Forever Florida include the fully guided Horseback Safari and Coach Safari. Advance reservations are required and can be made by calling 407‐957‐9794 ext 1.
