I didn't realize there were so many activities on the Biennial. Do you identify palms when you're on the zip line, or was is just a thrill ride?

Looks like everybody had a great time! (I stayed at the hotel and had a nice relaxed day....). Did everybody get to ride just once? And for how long did the ride last?

There were nine zip lines... The actual time on the line was maybe 5 seconds but you have to wait for your turn. Even waiting your turn was fun because we were up high on a platform and it was a great view... of course there were palms. It was a little windy and we were on a platform that was attached to a big tree... you could feel it sway... it was cool!

5 seconds!!?? Wow, that's quick...not much time to enjoy the forest! So, did everybody get to ride all of the nine different zip lines?

Well... 5 seconds was my guesstimation... We spent about an hour or so in the forest... we even saw a poison dart frog. It was set up like a trail of zip lines through the forest... but the last and longest line was back by the restaurant.
