Sure, a beach vacation needs its share of laid back time just to unwind and soak up the sun with the sugar white sand for your toes to sink into. But it doesn’t have to be a complete snooze!
When you are ready to add some white knuckle fun to your vacation, you only need to look across the road from the beach to the zipline towers in Gulf State Park. Here at Gulf Adventure Center you can brave the Hummingbird Ziplines and soar over the waters of Lake Shelby.
The guided experience consists of six ziplines and seven towers spanning one mile and you can expect about two hours to complete your tour.
To make your adventure more enjoyable, keep this info in mind:
Wear sturdy footwear such as sport sandals or tennis shoes. Closed-toe styles are required. Flip flops are not allowed on the zipline course.
Short shorts and bathing suits are not recommended as they may be uncomfortable while wearing a harness.
Remember that you will be wearing a harness during your zipline tour. Having loose objects in your pockets will be both uncomfortable and create potential for loss or injury.
It is recommended that you arrive with no hanging/dangling jewelry or rings. Remove all loose objects from your pockets or body before you begin your tour. These items include but are not limited to: wallets, cell phones, keys, knives, and loose change. If you intend to wear sunglasses or prescription glasses, please ensure that they are on a strap to keep them secure around your neck.
