Wow. Who’d have thought Baton Rouge would open up a zipline canopy tour? Not me. Even though it probably doesn’t compare to the ones in the Costa Rican rainforest, it’s still pretty cool for being an hour up the river from NOLA.
That’s kinda what NOadventure is all about – making your own fun no matter where you are. This guy looks like he’s having a blast!
So does this guy.
Description from Tiki Zipline’s site:
“There is a full one mile of zip line adventure awaiting you at Tiki Zip Lines. We have erected 11 stations with 10 connecting zip cables. You’ll move from stately one hundred year old live oaks through magnolia trees and over a young cypress swamp as you travel along the zip lines. One is a monster 1,600 feet long. That’s between Station F and Station G. As far as we know this is the only canopy tour adventure that allows you to return within 50 yards of where you check in. This makes it as simple as a trip to the local park. But, be forewarned it’s not like riding the merry-go-round in the park.”
The Monster “Station F.”
They’ve got a ton of photos on their site. Most of them show the facility in some sort of construction, but they’ve got a few cool pics of the platforms in various conditions.
Here’s the best part – a coupon for half-off(cause this stuff ain’t cheap):
A bunch of videos on youtube claim to be the World’s Longest Zipline, but I just chose this one in Alaska because it looked cold.
