RAIN FOREST ADVENTURES DOMINICA ELECTRIFIES WITH

LAUNCH OF SOUTHERN CARIBBEAN’S HIGHEST ZIP LINE


MIAMI (October 15, 2011) – Rain Forest Adventures Dominica’s new [INSERT TITLE] zip line, opening September 30, will reign supreme with the Southern Caribbean’s highest zip line. The six-platform course navigates three adrenaline-pumping lines through the rainforest canopy. The highest and most exicting is a ride over the 350 ft Breakfast River Gorge. Rain Forest Adventures re-opens to the public on October 3. Admission to the zip line is $[XX] for adults, $[XX] for children and students.


Rain Forest Adventures Dominica is introducing the “Nature Island’s” most exciting sustainable tourism project in recent years. The [INSERT TITLE] zip line will also be the eco-adventure park’s first year-around attraction, entertaining hotel and cruise guests, as well as island residents. The launch event will be held September 30, 2011 in the island’s capital Roseau with the Minister of Tourism, the Hon. Ian Douglas, the Discover Dominica Authority, and is open to the community.


[INSERT TITLE] zip line is accessible from the park’s signature Rain Forest Aerial Tram or by the Chatannier Nature Trail. From the park’s top station, visitors receive a safety briefing and orientation, and then take a short walk to the first platform and a 125 ft zip line. The second zip line (250 ft) takes riders higher yet and is followed by a 40 ft rappel to the ground. The highlight of the experience: an 810 ft cable suspended over Breakfast River Gorge, a 350-foot cavernous drop flourishing with plants and waterfalls.


Rain Forest Adventures at Dominica is located within a mountain cloud forest at the edge of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park. Rainforest covers 60% of the islands and here adventurers can discover plants and wildlife usually hidden in rainforest treetops with the Aerial Tram. The Suspension Bridge over Breakfast River Gorge offers a breathtaking view both above and below, as the new zip line will cross overhead.

About Rain Forest Adventures

The original Rain Forest Aerial Tram Atlantic was established in 1994 in Costa Rica by H.J. Von der Goltz, a visionary and nature lover. It was the first operation of its kind anywhere in the world, with a unique requirement: it had to be built in the middle of 1,200 acres of dense jungle without impacting the forest. Today, five Rain Forest Adventures parks are located in Costa Rica (Pacific and Atlantic), Saint Lucia, Dominica and Jamaica, serving as wildlife reserves and ecotourism attractions. The exceptional combination of attractions such as the Tram ride, Bobsled and Zip Line plus the experience, training and commitment of a multi-lingual and naturalist guides guarantees an educational, adventurous and unforgettable experience for guests. www.rainforest-adventures.com
