Enjoy a scenic countryside drive with us up to H'Evans Scent
Zip Line facility. The
drive takes you through sleepy villages past kids going to school to locals doing
their washing. H'Evans Scent is located 2000ft up with a view across the green
fields of St Ann, our garden parish.
Upon arrival at H'Evans Scent, Bamboo gates you will be met by
our friendly staff who will give you your first real taste of Jamaica, a natural
fruit drink made from fruits that are in season, served in a calabash cup.
H'Evans Scent was the first to introduce Zip Lines to the Island of Jamaica and
they have stayed ahead of the competition by installing rides which are different to
what others are offering.
Each ride is a different experience, and once you have been harnessed your safety
instructions comes next then it is onto the first Zip Line.
LEAP OF FAITH
Each person is required to climb a staircase, once on the launch platform the
instructor give you the final briefing and then you are ready to zip 500 ft, across
the valley, you are then met on the other side by two members of staff, who take you
off the line and then it is a short walk up to ride number two
Once clipped to the zip line at ground level you are required to make a short run
to the edge of the platform and Jump off, this gives you the momentum to traverse
across the valley back to where it all began.
THE SCREAMER, (giant swing)
This is the ride of your life. One two or three sit in a seat once connected
safely to the bar, an automatic which takes the group up to 60ft in the air. When
the motor stops one person must pull a ripcord this releases the seat holding all
the riders, they then swing at 180 degrees. And keep moving till it all comes to a
AWESOME (Zip Line)
This is located across the other side of the road, is the longest ride on the
Island 1200ft across a scenic valley. There are no stairs so you must climb up the
staples on the outside of the pole to the platform 50ft in the air, while attached
to the safety line. For this ride you must weigh more than 110lbs and no more than
250lbs. It is a great ride and it gives you the thrill of a lifetime. Once you get
to the other side of the valley, two members of staff then take you off the line.
A walk up the hillside pass goats and cows lead you to the fastest ride.
You will need to once again climb a staircase to about 10ft off the ground. After
a safety check, then from the platform you push off holding up your legs as you skim
close to the ground, picking up speed all the time on your way across a scenic
valley back to where you left a few moments ago.
After all this activity it is a walk through the fields past local produce being
grown, local folks doing their washing and cooking outdoors.
The exhilaration, fun excitement is now all over after a very physical day sleep
that evening will be a great reward for a day well spent.
