It's easy to spend your entire day at this park because there is just so much to do. The zip-line adventure is the thing to do at this park, even if you're a little scared.
There really isn't anywhere else where you can zip over a pool of live, dangerous animals, except in Texas. To some, this sounds like a great time, to others, they'll think you're crazy if you participate. There is a four-line course that's an hour long and the seven-line course can lasts up to two hours.
Each of these adventures takes you through a deep forest, over the exotic animals' habitats and then over the pond with the massive amount of live, hungry alligators. A guide will be with you the entire time, no matter what course you take so you're in safe hands.
The seven-line course should be taken if you want to get the full experience of the longest zip-line in the entire state of Louisiana. You'll get free admission to the exotic animal park and a cup of animal feed when you purchase this adventure.
After you're done with your zip-line experience, you have to finish your trip by petting lemurs, cows, camels, kangaroos and more.
This is a great place to really learn about the animals that habitat Louisiana and how they live and thrive there. You can also head to this massive wetland where you can get up-close and personal with alligators.
