Rain Forest Aerial Tram Dominica will launch its thrilling new Gorge Zip Challenge zip line with an event on September 30 in Roseau at the Fort Young Hotel at 9:30 AM with the Minister of Tourism, the Hon. Ian Douglas, The Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association and the Discover Dominica Authority.
The six-platform Gorge Zip Challenge course navigates three adrenaline-pumping lines through the rainforest canopy. The highest and most exciting is a ride over the 350 ft. Breakfast River Gorge – the highest of any zip line in the Southern Caribbean! Rain Forest Aerial Tram re-opens to the public on October 3. Admission to the zip line begins at $50 EC per person for Dominica residents and $50 USD for visitors. Children must be 12 years or older to ride, with some restrictions.
The new “Gorge Zip Challenge” course at Rain Forest Aerial Tram is an exciting addition to Dominica’s tourism market in recent years. It is also the park’s first year-round attraction, open to visitors and locals alike. The Gorge Zip Challenge will also provide a much needed increase to the revenue stream of the Rain Forest Aerial Tram as well as create employment opportunities.
“The launch of the Gorge Zip Challenge is not just a monumental occasion for Rain Forest Aerial Tram” said Nikima Royer, Administrative Manager of Rain Forest Aerial Tram – Dominica. “It is a monumental occasion for the village of Laudat where we are located, the tourism industry which has been infused with new excitement and Dominica on a whole which has a new stellar product to entertain residents as well as to introduce to visitors of its shores.”
With its first ever local marketing campaign, in collaboration with FSI Creative and QuickLink Productions, the Rain Forest Aerial Tram has delved into the residential and stayover market by the introduction of the Gorge Zip Challenge with renewed energy and determination for success.
