Part zipline, part rollercoaster. This zipcoaster is all terrifying, all awesome.

There’s an adventure park in St. Cloud, Florida that has a unique thrill ride that combines the dips and swoops of a rollercoaster with the excitement of a zip line. It's called the zipcoaster  and it's one of many attractions offered at Forever Florida, an adventure park and wildlife conservancy.

This rollercoaster zip line is one of three in the world and the only one in the US. Forever Florida's zipcoaster is also the largest one ever made. The ride takes visitors screaming through the trees and dipping through 1000 feet of adventure.

Riders launch from a 65-foot-high platform.

WATCH: But the most terrifying attraction they have is the Panther Pounce, where you step off a 7-story platform into a thrilling but safely controlled free fall to the ground below.

The SPLAT written in the sand makes the step off even more terrifying.

Thrill rides and free falls are just a small part of Forever Florida. The 4700 acre land is also a wildlife conservancy and working cattle ranch offering horseback riding,  a nature tour and overnight camping/glamping.

 "Our mission is to preserve and protect the fragile ecosystems of Florida’s wilderness, to provide a permanent protective habitat for wildlife, to maintain the historical ranching operation and to educate the public about the importance of conservation and the preservation of our unique ranching heritage."
