The Magnolia Ridge Adventure Park Is Hiding In The Middle Of A Louisiana Forest And You Need To Visit
Hiking trails and paddle trails are a great way to explore Louisiana’s landscape, but there’s a new activity that’s emerging and it’ll show you a bird’s eye view of our iconic waterways and hardwood forests and take you to the tree tops. If you’ve got a need for speed (and heights), then you’ve got to make your way over to this one particular adventure park in Louisiana, where you will find one of the largest zip lines in Louisiana.
Magnolia Ridge is a 32-acre adventure park tucked away in East Feliciana Parish.
It's home to the largest zip line in South Louisiana.
After getting your gear and a brief training lesson, you're off to the trees!
The 8-part zip line will have you soaring above the trees.
Each zip line gradually gets longer, so you can ease into this experience. It's not every day you just get to go zipping through the forest!
As you make your way through the hardwood forest, keep an eye out for wildlife below.
White-tailed deer, turkeys, and maybe even an otter or two might just be cheering you on from ground level.
The final leg of the zip line is the longest zip line in Louisiana.
It's 900 feet long and 45 feet high! This stretch of the course will have you soaring over the beautiful Comite River. It'll take you about 45 seconds to get down to the bottom, which is plenty of time to take in the views.
While you wait for the rest of your crew to reach the bottom, soak your feet in the refreshing river water.
But don't get too comfortable, there's one more stop you'll want to make before leaving.
Barn Hill Animal Preserve is Magnolia Ridge's neighbor and they've partnered up so you can visit both!
With their high elements/animal encounters bundle, you'll spend two hours playing with cuddly critters (like this kangaroo), and then you'll be shuttled down the road to Magnolia Ridge to fly through the sky.
From giraffes to giant tortoises, Barn Hill is home to dozens of exotic animals that you can pet and feed.
