Walk with the Squirrels and Fly with the Birds!

Suspension Bridge, and view the panoramic geography of Georgian Bay and countryside from the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment.

The Thunderbird Twin Zip Line is Canada’s longest twin zip line, features a span of a half-mile and is located at the highest point of the Niagara Escarpment in the centre of the park.  The adventure begins with a self-guided tour of the caves, caverns and crevasses carved by receding glaciers. Explore the legends of the First Nation’s Huron Petun tribe, first recorded in the early 1600’s by Jesuit Father Jean de Brebeuf.   Native people spoke of a mysterious giant bird which nested at the top of the mountain, thus it is fitting you climb a circular staircase up a 50ft. steel tower to the Thunderbird nest. The Thunderbird features new technology. Each trolley is dynamically controlled, allowing each rider to manipulate their own zip ride speed.  Soaring like a bird from a vertical drop of 300 ft. you are propelled by gravity to the valley below at speeds of up to 70 kph. After un-harnessing, you continue your hike along Southern Ontario’s longest 420 ft. Suspension Bridge, viewing 10,000 sq. km. of south Georgian Bay.
