Image via: rainforestadventure.comRain Forest Adventure Dominica this morning launched another major attraction to its popular and exciting aerial tram adventure at a press conference at the Fort Young Hotel this morning.The Gorge Zip Challenge is a six-platform course which navigates three adrenaline-pumping lines through the rainforest canopy.Administrative Manager of Rain Forest Adventures Dominica Ms Nikima Royer explained that the Gorge Zip Challenge is the highest of any zip line in the Southern Caribbean and also offers a picturesque view of the Breakfast River Gorge.“The new Gorge Zip Challenge thrills with the highest zip line in the Caribbean. The six platform course line offers three adrenaline pumping lines that glide through the rain forest canopy. 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 one hundred and twenty-five foot zip line. The second zip line two hundred and forty feet takes riders higher yet and is followed by a forty foot repel to the ground. The highlight of the experience is the Gorge Challenge which is actually eight hundred and forty feet. The eight hundred and fifty feet cable suspended over the Breakfast River Gorge of three hundred and fifty foot caverns drop flourishing with plants and waterfalls,” she said.Hon. Ian Douglas.Meantime Minister of Tourism and Legal Affairs Honourable Ian Douglas commended the rain forest aerial tram for preserving the forests and their consideration of the environment.“The fact that we still enjoy these attractions in Dominica is as a result of a long history of preserving our natural heritage either through legislation and a lot of people don’t know that in the 1970’s the government of the day took a deliberate step to legislate that a certain percent of our forest cover must remain untouched, so that is law….The rainforest aerial tram has been an example and continues to be, of what can be achieved with proper planning and due consideration for the environment,” he said.Mr Douglas also assured the team of Rain Forest Adventures Dominica of his support and that of his ministry to work with them to ensure that this new venture is successful.“As Minister of Tourism I pledge my support and that of the ministry to this venture, be assured that we will be working side by side with you as far as possible to ensure your success. I wish that many other tourism enterprises would take this bold initiative such as the one you have taken so that the tourism sector would continue to expand and to grow and to generate more excitement.”Admission to the zip line is $50 EC per person (local) and $50 US for visitors. Children must be twelve years and older to ride and the Rain Forest Aerial Tram reopens to the public on October 3rd.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
