Adrenaline Junkie's Wet Dream Jun 04, 2012
This is one of the biggest zip line parks in the US. Yeah, gringos, Puerto Rico is part of the US. It is located in the mountainous pueblo of Orocovis in Puerto Rico. There are a variety of options to choose from.
I did the Zip Line tours and "The Beast". The zip line tour consists of 8 stations where you zip from one platform to another at the end of the zip line. The stations get progressively longer and the higher over the mountains. On this zip line you hang sitting down from the zip line.
The views from the rides are amazing. You zip along at about 40 - 50 MPH. The adrenaline rush you get from this is almost as intense as sky diving. I went with 4 friends and we all loved it.
The Beast ride is a zip line where you hang lying face down and fly through air like Superman. It is almost a mile long. On this ride you get up to 60 MPH. This ride was a pure adrenaline rush. All 4 of us did this ride too & loved it.
If you are not in shape enough to hike to the stations, it may not be the ride for you. If you are scared of heights, don't bother showing up. Orocovis is in the middle of the island and it is about a 2 hour ride from the San Juan tourist area.
It was definitely a welcome change of pace from sandy beaches and tourist traps. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this park to any adrenaline junkie that needs a fix.
