The Region’s First Swamp Zipline Returns Back and Better Than Ever

The Region’s First Swamp Zipline Returns Back and Better Than Ever

Zip NOLA welcomes back the community with grand reopening and 10% off admission
NEW ORLEANS – Zip NOLA celebrated its grand reopening Saturday, February 12th, after receiving a near-direct impact from Hurricane Ida only a month after opening in the Summer of 2021. The facility has been rebuilt and is finally ready to welcome back the New Orleans community to experience its one-of-a-kind attraction. The Zip NOLA facility sustained 10-to-12 feet of storm surge which brought with it the debris from the decimated nearby village of Frenier. Special machinery was deployed to remove the wreckage while ensuring the protection of the beautiful Maurepas Swamp which the zipline traverses.
After nearly six months of overcoming challenges from both COVID-19 and unexpected natural disasters, the facility is back and better than ever. The course was rebuilt by Zip NOLA’s designers and construction team in conjunction with the owners, Tyler Richardson and Barry Gros Jr., and the facility’s guides. The course is back to its previous specs and exceeded all safety requirements.
“It has certainly been a roller coaster of emotions. From overcoming the hurdles of actually building a zipline through the swamp to opening for just over 34 days until Ida, and now having to redo this process again,” Richardson said.
The state-of-the-art facility, located at 301 Peavine Road in LaPlace, is equipped with two suspension bridges, a spiral tree staircase, and over 20,000 linear feet of advanced zipline technology spanning nearly a half-mile long, where thrillseekers can experience a pelican’s eye view of both the swamp and the New Orleans skyline. Zip NOLA is currently open six days a week (closed on Wednesdays) from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Ticket prices remain $89 per person and can be purchased through the Zip NOLA website:
In celebration of the Grand Reopening, Zip NOLA is offering 10% off admission prices for all patrons with the promo code ‘GRAND’ until the end of the month.
