Jim rides the Monster zip line, the world’s second-longest zip line and sadly he wasn’t happy.
The Monster in Toro Verde won the Guinness World Record as the longest zipline in the world, after its inauguration in March 2016. A record that was surpassed a year later by the UAE in a project developed by the same company that The Monster did in Orocovis and invested $ 2,500 million
Toro Verde is the ecotourism park where you will spend endless hours of adventure. You will enjoy the most beautiful landscapes that will leave you breathless, and you can do extreme sports in direct contact with nature. If you are one of those who like to feel that rush of adrenaline and excitement, this is the place for you.
Toro Verde Adventure Park, located in Orocovis (in the middle of Puerto Rico), is a large park that offers a number of different zip lines and rope challenge courses. The park has two lay-down type zip lines, The Beast and The Monster. The Beast is long (a little under a mile) and fast, but it is dwarfed by The Monster, which is more than and mile and a half long.
Toro Verde is a bit of a drive from San Juan, or almost anywhere, for that matter, since it is in the middle of the island! Once you arrive, you sign in, complete the waiver, and that sort of stuff. Then you hang out until your scheduled tour. That’s a good time to grab a quick snack at the café, or use the restroom. You won’t get those options again until your tour is over. There is also a full-service restaurant and gift shop in the main building. You can rent a Go-Pro at the gift shop if you want, to video your whole flight.
We have been on a bunch of different zip lines, both in Puerto Rico and other parts of the world. We enjoy zip lines, but time spent waiting in line and clipping on/off of a series of short zip lines dilutes the excitement of flying through the air. If you feel the same way, then The Monster at Toro Verde is for you. At 1.57 miles long, it takes more than 2 minutes to go from end to end. It was the longest in the world until February 2018. It is a lay-down type of zip line, so all the while you are “flying” over beautiful terrain.
The Monster has attracted the attention of great characters from the world of the show, in 2017 the Puerto Rican singer Chayanne visited the facilities and of course, like a good bullfighter, he could not contain the desire to throw himself in the popular zip line of Toro Verde Park.
“Enjoying Puerto Rico and its mountains #familia #toroverde #miisla”, the dancer also wrote on his social networks, who accompanied the message of several images.
Also, a few weeks ago, the host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon, also visited Toro Verde, and even terrified managed to conquer The Monster.
So, although Jim has not enjoyed the experience 100%, there are many other testimonies that invite you to live the adventure of conquering the second largest Zipline in the world!
