Extreme Zip Line Journey
Selvatica’s epic Zip line circuit has raised the bar for other parks in the region. Their innovative design is similar to riding a roller coaster, hence the name “The Human Roller Coaster,” better known as Tanzania. This is one of the favorite attractions at Selvatica, with an innovative design that combines exciting curves and turns. You go through the circuit together with a small group; the same guide stays with you throughout the tour.
There’s also a zip line that goes over a cenote where you can splash and cool off. Other variations include an upside-down zip line, a glove control zip line for riders that want to control speed and a “Superman” zip line where you “fly” face-first through the Mayan jungle (Superflight).
Offroad and Other Adventures at Selvatica
After you ride the zipline circuit, you may choose the tour that includes riding ATVs (ATV Polaris), where you will drive through tight curves and fast roads on a “Mud-Madness” track. After you arrive at the finish line, you will be rewarded with a refreshing swim in a stunning cenote.
In the mixology experience, you will learn about the art of cocktails from a master mixologist, better known as “Mexologo .” It’s a fun lesson on traditional and modern techniques with a legendary twist, where you will fix your drinks with premium Tequila and enjoy a Mexican-style snack.
