Flying Squirrel Zipline

The Lost River Cave Flying Squirrel Zipline is your destination for adrenaline-pumping fun. Fly through the treetops and zip over the Valley’s largest blue hole surrounded by breathtaking natural beauty.

Our professional guides lead you on an exhilarating trip through the forest canopy. Your 3-zip adventure begins when you step off an 80-foot bluff that sends you soaring through the trees.

Tickets are sold online and at the Park on a first-come, first-served basis.

All participants must complete a waiver and health history form to be able to zip. If a participant is under the age of 18, a legal parent or guardian must complete the waiver and health history form for the participant.
