In early 2013, the original Hummingbird Ziplines opened in Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, Alabama, featuring a seven zipline course which was voted the #1 Attraction on the Gulf Coast for 3 years in a row by TripAdvisor reviewers. After four very successful years and nearly 60,000 elated zipline guests, the State canceled the company’s 12-year concession contract without cause, forcing it to cease operation in late 2016.
In early 2017, the owners successfully negotiated an agreement to relocate the course to The Wharf, an upscale mixed-use Development and Entertainment District in Orange Beach, Alabama, just three miles from the former location. The towers were then dismantled and the components trucked to The Wharf where construction began in late spring of 2017. The new, higher and faster Course now features an eighth zipline covering over 6,000 feet, nearly twice as long as the previous location. With heights up to 115 feet and speeds over 30 MPH, participants soar on a 2 ½ hour tour over pristine bays, the Intracoastal Waterway and through a Federally-protected wetland, beginning and ending just off of The Wharf’s Main Street.
With this move, the Course retained virtually all of the core staff, including its General Manager, Course Manager, Media Manager, Guest Services Manager and its Managing Partner. This seasoned management team provides its guests with an even higher level of value, enjoyment, excitement and sense of achievement for both new and returning participants alike.
We're always looking for something the whole family can enjoy, and this certainly qualifies. Highly recommended!
