MIAMI (June 1, 2010) – Rainforest Sky Rides St. Lucia welcomes explorers of all ages with its new Summer Family Special, valid June 1 – September 30, 2010. Children under 17 receive one complimentary excursion at the remarkable rainforest park, located in St. Lucia’s vibrant Chassin highlands.


Children may choose one of three excursions at Rainforest Sky Rides St. Lucia, all of which meet rigorous safety standards and are led by professional guides:



  • Aerial Tram – Open-air gondolas transport passengers past majestic trees, brilliant clusters of flowers and flirtatious birds.

  • Tranopy Tour – Guests ride the zip line through the verdant rainforest canopy, then enjoy a short hike and gondola ride back to base camp.

  • Adrena Line – The park’s newest attraction offers white-knuckle thrills. A short hike is followed by 18 platforms of rushing zip lines, plus a Tarzan Swing and Boa Rappel.


Summer Family Special at Rainforest Sky Rides St. Lucia is limited to one complimentary excursion per family, and is limited to select days. Children must be accompanied by two parents. Minimum age for zip lines is 12 years.


While visiting the park, families will also enjoy colorful bird-watching tours with an experienced naturalist guide and a challenging hike into the heart of the lush rainforest on the Jacquot Trail.


Recommended clothing includes walking/hiking shoes (no high heels, sandals or flip flops allowed for trails), suntan lotion, rain protection, insect repellent, camera, binoculars, travel credentials for duty free shopping, and shorts or trousers.

About Rain Forest Aerial Trams

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 Aerial Trams located in Costa Rica (Pacific and Atlantic), Saint Lucia, Dominica and Jamaica, serve 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
