If speeding along at +30 mph, over beautiful waterways, wetlands and high above the tree tops, is your idea of fun, then the Hummingbird Zipline Course is just the ticket. Add a high adrenaline adventure you won’t soon forget to your vacation itinerary while in Gulf Shores.
Start Zipping Down This Gulf Shores Zipline
With over 6,000 feet of continuous zipline and soaring up to 110 feet above the ground, the Hummingbird Zipline Course is Alabama’s longest, fastest and highest zipline. For over two hours, you’ll zip along, over the Intracoastal Waterway, federally protected wetlands and pristine Gulf coastline. Be ready for some climbing too; those towers are high! There are eight zip lines laid out in a rough circle, between seven towers, with the tour beginning and ending at the same tower.
Your experienced guides will start you out with a short overview of the course and basic zipline safety, then help you on with your equipment. After a short practice zip (at low altitude), you’re ready to go. And don’t worry about safety; your guides have been trained in first aid, and they are always in radio contact with the home base. Plus, they will be with your group over the entire course.
