An exciting day out among nature typically doesn't involve soaring over a pool of 150 live alligators, but this insane gator park on the border of Texas and Lousiana offers just that.
Gators & Friends is a wild adventure park and exotic zoo that specializes in taking care of alligators and other unique animals from around the globe. Their zip line adventure is definitely something you do not want to miss out on.
You can experience the wildest adventure with the park's unique zip line course that takes you through the wildlife-filled woods, over a swamp filled with exotic animals and finishes with a 750-foot high run over the alligators. The entire course lasts about one hour, and in that one hour, your life will be completely turned upside down!
After your exhilarating trip over the gators, you can buy a bag of feed to give to some of the other exotic animals in the park. And a visit to their adorable petting zoo is definitely a must.
You have the option to take a four-line course or their seven-line course at the wild adventure park. Both courses are safe and even come with an instructional guide who will make sure you don't actually come across any danger.
The insane 4-line course is priced at only $44.95 per person and the 7-line course is $69.95 and includes park admission. You could spend hours here and never get bored!
Gators and Friends is currently open from Thursday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. but it's best to call before to confirm. They are located at 11441 US Hwy. 80, Greenwood, LA 71033, which is right across the state border from east Texas.
