Nocturnal adventure-seekers are invited to don a headlamp and zip under the stars when Treetop Trek’s “night zipping” experience debuts in early 2017.
The Zip Only course, which features nine zip lines above Brevard Zoo and adjacent wetlands, takes on a different feel when the sun goes down. Wild animals like owls, bobcats and unusual insects are commonly heard and sometimes seen. Guests will also have the chance to experience Treetop Trek’s new continuous belay system, which eliminates the need to clip in and out before and after each zip line.
Night zipping, which costs $65 per person, is available at 6 and 8 p.m. on January 6, 13 and 20. Each tour can accommodate up to 12 people; a minimum of eight registrants per tour is required. Private night zipping experiences are available on demand on Fridays and Saturdays when no public tours are scheduled.
