Sandestin Introduces New Zipline Attraction in the Village of Baytowne Wharf
Destin, Fla. – Sandestin® Golf and Beach Resort has added to new reasons to hang around the resort with the addition of a zip line and ropes course, completing the Baytowne Adventure Zone.
Anchored by two 60 feet-tall towers, the zip line will send guests flying over the lagoon in the center of The Village of Baytowne Wharf. Guests are hooked to the line in a rappelling-style harness and zip approximately 650 feet from tower to tower suspended 52-feet in the air. Sandestin is the only destination on the Northwest Florida Gulf Coast to offer a zip line attraction.
“Patrons say the zip line is fun and easy; just harness up and experience the thrill and rush of flying through the air while viewing the beautiful surroundings of The Village of Baytowne Wharf,” said Matt Lindley, vice president of resort activities. “By expanding our amenities to feature the zip line and Baytowne Adventure Zone, we hope to offer our guests yet another opportunity to create a lasting memory.”
Directly next to the towers, a new ropes course will allow guests to participate in even more thrill and adventure and the experience of doing something a bit out of your comfort zone. Guests have the option of navigating suspended wooden bridges, rope elements and balance beams in the air, while safely secured in a full body harness with a lanyard attached. You decide what activities you want to try and how far up on the course you want to travel.
Also part of Baytowne Adventure Zone is a euro-bungy, coconut tree climbing wall and a playground designed for children by children. The playground features a shark tunnel, lighthouse, coral-reef climbing wall, tire swing and much more.
Baytowne Adventure Zone is open year round to resort guests and general public, with peak season hours from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Kids (and adults) can zip along for just $18, which can be charged back to your room with a simple swipe of your resort key card. For an additional $12, anyone can test their skill on the ropes course. Sandestin gift cards are also accepted.
In addition to Baytowne Adventure Zone, Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort offers on- and off-water activities; daily family-orientated events; four championship golf courses, complete with junior tees; more than 70 shopping, dining and nightlife venues; complimentary amenities and a handful of highly-anticipated annual regional festivals.
