This adventure promises to be a lot of fun and an adrenaline rush. First you will be picked up directly from your cruise ship pier/resort by one of our friendly driver/guides. He will then take you on a journey along the north coast of Ocho Rios viewing local towns and then up to about 2000 feet in the hills of St Ann for heart pounding thrills, adventure and breath taking scenery on our Ocho Rios Zip Line adventure at the Hevans Scent Hilltop Retreat which in addition to thrills and adrenaline rush offers unforgettable scenery and moments of peaceful meditation.
After a scenic drive of about 35 minutes you arrive at this retreat which is an innovative, eco-tourism experience that both adults and children can enjoy. Based at a location that affords breath taking views, exhilarating activities and down to earth homeliness.
Upon arrival at Hevans Scent each person is greeted by guides with a natural fruit drink in a Bamboo or coconut cup orientation and safety briefing will follow.
This is followed by reading and signing the disclaimer and health declaration forms. This ensures that everyone needs to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.
Each Zip Line ride is a different experience, and once you have been harnessed your safety instructions comes next then it is unto the first Zip Line.
LEAP OF FAITH
Each person is required to climb a staircase, once on the launch platform the instructor give you the final briefing and then you are ready to zip 500 ft, across the valley, you are then met on the other side by two members of staff, who take you off the line and then it is a short walk up to ride number two
Once clipped to the zip line at ground level, You are required to run to the edge and Jump off, this gives you the momentum to traverse across the valley back to where it all began.
THE SCREAMER, (giant swing)
This is the ride of your life. One two or three sit in a seat once connected safely to the bar, an automatic witch takes the group up to 60ft in the air. When the motor stops one person must pull a ripcord this releases the seat holding all the riders, they then swing at 180 degrees. And keep moving till it all comes to a stop.
AWESOME (Zip Line)
This is located across the other side of the road, is the longest ride on the Island 1200ft across a scenic valley. No staircase so we belay or you up to a platform 50ft in the air. For this ride you must weight more than 110lbs and no more than 250lbs. It is a great ride and it gives you the thrill of a lifetime. Once you get to the other side of the valley, two members of staff then take you off the line. A walk up the hillside pass goats and cows lead you to the fastest ride.
You will need to once again climb a staircase to about 10ft off the ground. After a safety check then from the platform you push off holding up your legs as you skim close to the ground, picking up speed all the time on your way across a scenic valley, back to where you left a few moments ago.
