Being too tall won’t end well on this zip line
Ziplining gets a little more dangerous when there are jumping alligators right at the end of the ride.
We’ve seen plenty of rides that require people to be over a certain height to ride. This is one that probably favors the vertically challenged — unless losing an ankle is the goal.
The woman knew there were alligators in the water below her, but she wasn’t expecting one to leap up towards her as she passed over.
Our best guess would be that this is the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line at Gatorland. The zipliners reaction certainly lives up to the name either way.
Hungry, hungry gator
The park says guests can “soar across five intense zip lines ranging in length from 230 feet to more than 500 feet, and carefully cross a swinging bridge over the park’s main walkway.”
We can imagine it’d be difficult to finish the other ziplines after getting so close to one of Gatorland’s representatives.
“All adventures are led by highly trained guides, who love to share stories about the critters that call Gatorland home,” the website says. “Prepare to experience Gatorland from a viewpoint previously reserved for our fine-feathered friends!”
Gatorland features more than just alligators as well. The park is also home to both Cuban and Nile Crocodiles.
The grand finale involves rocketing across an alligator breeding marsh that’s loaded with 130 massive gators right below.
Don’t be fooled by the name, though. It looks like the alligators are more than willing to jump up and scare the pants off of anyone that zips by.
If anyone wants a birdseye view with the possibility of getting attacked mid-air, then this zip line (and gator) is waiting.
