MELBOURNE, Fla., May 20, 2020 — Treetop Trek will reopen to the general public on Saturday, May 23 with new guidelines to ensure the safety of guests and staff. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily.

All guests will be required to purchase timed-entry tickets online prior to arrival to limit the number of people on the courses. The Canopy Walk, Challenge Reloaded and Zip Only courses will be open to all guests, and Black Diamond will be open to passholders only. Chutes and Ladders will remain closed. Guests must wear masks during the check-in and safety briefing process, and they are required to maintain social distancing from other parties while on the course. Staff will use enhanced safety and sanitation protocols.

Guests will enjoy birds’-eye views of Brevard Zoo’s new Rainforest Revealed exhibit, which features giant otters, spider monkeys and more.

“In my opinion, the best place to practice social distancing is the great outdoors,” said Nancy Wright, the Zoo’s director of adventure services. “We look forward to resuming our high-flying adventures on Saturday.”
