Zipline At The Wharf


Think Orange Beach is gorgeous from the ground? You should see it from up above. The Hummingbird Zipline Course at The Wharf will give you a birds-eye view of Orange Beach and the surrounding area. With more than 6,000 feet of ziplines and a peak elevation of 115 feet, you are in for quite a thrill. Tickets start at $89, and you can book online. Grab some tickets, and get ready for the ride of a lifetime.

Here’s what you need to go before you go.

You’ll Practice First

If you’ve never been ziplining before, you might be nervous about taking off for the first time. You don’t need to worry though. You’ll go through a practice run before you take off. The practice zipline is just about ten feet off the ground, so you’ll be perfectly safe while you get the hang of it. This will give you the confidence you need to go high up in the air.

Eight Lines in All

The Hummingbird Zipline Course consists of eight ziplines, but you’ll actually go on seven. At one point, the zipline splits in two, and you’ll race against someone else in your group. This is a lot of fun.

Keep in mind that you will need to walk up stairs to get to the ziplines. The instructors won’t rush you, but be prepared to do some walking.

See the Sights

You might think you won’t have time to see the sights while ziplining, but that’s not the case. Your instructor will actually point out different sights to you, and you will get to take them in when you zip on by. Plus, your instructor will give you words of encouragement and ensure that you have fun.

Get the Photo Package

You’ll have the opportunity to add a photo package to your order, and it’s well worth it. A photographer will take your picture as you’re zipping through the course, and then he or she will email the pictures to you. The package includes lots of cool photos, and they are the perfect keepsake.

Wouldn’t it be cool if you could zipline everywhere? That might be cool, but it’s hardly practical. It’s not like your boss will run some zipline from your house to work. Fortunately, you can drive everywhere you want to go in a cool vehicle.
