Gatorland is about to launch the Gator Gauntlet, a zip line ride for people with physical disabilities. This zip line is 350 feet long and goes over a lake full of alligators. Free admission and rides will be given to veterans with physical impairments tomorrow, Florida Disabled Outdoors Association (FDOA) members on Friday, and middle and high school students with mobility challenges on Saturday. The Gator Gauntlet will be open to the public for $15 (plus the admission fee) starting on Sunday. I remember going to Gatorland when I was a kid, so I'm glad to see the park is including people with disabilities.
