Since 1893 this farm has been an attraction for tourists looking for a thrilling experience. Besides being located in the oldest city in America, St. Augustine Alligator Farm is an accredited zoo offering guests a zip-line attraction like no other.
The historic farm houses hundreds of alligators, crocodiles, venomous snakes and other wildlife; dubbing it the "Largest Alligator Farm in the World."
In 2011, the farm opened a one-of-a-kind experience called Crocodile Crossing, providing visitors the opportunity to zip over the entire park and see wildlife through a new perspective. The farm focuses on educating its guests about crocodiles and luring them to learn more about Florida's wildlife.
Crocodile Crossing offers two different types of adventure across seven acres including two challenging courses where you can see at a bird-eye view the alligators and crocodiles. There are also lemurs and tropical birds surrounding the zoo where you will seem them from a short distance.
The Sepik River Course includes a 45-minutes experience across 9 zip lines about 35 feet high. The Nile River Course includes a more challenging experience for 90 minutes where guests can explore the zoo through 17 zip lines.
The zip line adventure starts at $37 and you can purchase your tickets online here. If this is not thrilling enough, the Python Challenge will give you a free fall adventure like no other. The 40-feet free fall provides a heart-stopping adventure for thrill seekers.
