Fly Above East Asia & Central Africa at the Wild Animal Park


img_1058_1Flightline was opened to the public yesterday! I happened to show up just as the Park’s first visitors prepared to take their warm-up run. (The wife and I were on our way over to check out the temporary butterfly exhibit when we were pleasantly distracted by this new adventure that provides a birds-eye view of the animals.)

I was ready to plunk down $70 to take part in the 1.5 hour odyssey but my wife kept me focused on the purpose of our visit (the butterflies) and said I should wait for my birthday. (159 days to go!)

Visitors start with a 470-foot long practice run through the forest landscape from Lorikeet Landing down towards Lion Camp. Once they master that, visitors will be driven up past the Botanical Gardens for their 3,700-foot long ride over the animals of East Asia and Central Africa before arriving at Kilima Point. The whole adventure takes an hour-and-a-half or so.

You can get more information on flightline from the Wild Animal Park web site.

By the way, here’s a picture of one of the cute butterflies we got to see after waiting in line for an hour. (If you are interested in checking them out, you’ll have to wait until next spring since yesterday was the last day.)
