ZOOm Through the Skies

ZOOm Air, the European-style aerial adventure at the Central Florida Zoo, gives visitors a challenging, self-propelled experience unlike other traditional zip line attractions. “There is nothing passive or ride-like about us,” says Tina Batten, administrator of ZOOm Air, LLC. “You earn your zips here.” Batten is referring to conquering the bridges, tight wires, “dancing” logs and other challenges on each course. Adventurers, who are fully instructed in safe progression, wear safety harnesses as they move from tree to tree by way of various games and zip lines. It’s not necessary to be an athlete to complete each course, but this brand of adventure does provide a workout. Reservations are not required for regular daytime park admission, but proper footwear (think “sneakers” or “trainers”) is a must. From Daytona, take I-4 west, Exit 104, turn right off the ramp onto Hwy 17-92, the Zoo entrance is a quarter-mile down on the right. ZOOm Air also offers birthday party packages, field trips, Moon ZOOm night adventures and Teambuilding Adventures. Open daily at 9 am (weather permitting) except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
