More details on Largo's new zip line course revealed

LARGO — The company building a zip line and aerial adventure course at Highland Recreation Complex released more details about the project this week.

Bradenton-based TreeUmph! Adventure Course is building the course, called TreeUmph! Blaze, with a series of zip lines and wooden obstacles in the woods behind the complex. Tickets are $20 to $40 for participants age 7 and older, less than the larger flagship location that charges between $26 and $55 to participate, according to a news release.

Residents of Largo and surrounding communities can get discounts, group rates and multi-park passes. Participants in the city's summer camps will get discounts beyond the group rates. Active and retired military personnel get 20 percent off ticket prices, as will first responders on select days.

TreeUmph! also plans quarterly events to raise money for local charities, the release said. The course will start accepting applications for donations and charity events when the park opens, which is expected to be before the end of the year.
