A Brief History of Ziplining Tree Top Adventure
Surprisingly enough, ziplining didn’t start off as an adventure sport. In certain mountainous areas of Asia and Europe, ziplining is a staple of life. People use them to cross valleys and to move quickly over fierce rivers. The modern notion of zipping through the forest in a tree top adventure came not from some thrill seeking enthusiast but from a scientist.
While researching canopy wildlife in the Costa Rican rainforest, Dr. Donald Perry designed a labyrinth of zip lines that he used to move up and down and side to side along the tree tops. Smithsonian Magazine published an article on the doctor in the 1980s. By the middle of the 90s entrepreneurs had taken the idea to new levels by guiding tours through tree top adventures. In the years since zip lining has become one of the fastest growing adventure sports in the country. You can visit us for a unique ziplining experience in Florida.
