Rainforest heads to FCCA Conference

CUL DE SAC–Rockland Estate eco-park will be an exhibiting tour at the Florida-Caribbean Cruise Association (FCCA) Conference and Tradeshow in Mexico October 23-27. This showcase comes at a good time for the country post-Hurricane Irma and the park set to open next month.

  Port St. Maarten sees the eco-park as a major new attraction for the country and its visitors, according to a statement from park operator Rainforest Adventures. The presence of Rainforest Adventures and others at the FCCA Conference to promote the destination and strongly emphasise that St. Maarten is back and open is very needed, said the Port.

  Rockland Estate eco-park will open to the public in November, rather than December, the date announced post hurricane.

  The park will launch with two signature attractions, the world’s steepest zip line The Flying Dutchman and the Soualiga Sky Explorer chairlift, as well as the Emilio Wilson Museum and Emilio’s Restaurant. Additional attractions, including the Sentry Hill zip line and the Schooner Ride, will open in early 2018.

  “We are very proud and thankful to our engineering and construction teams. Their hard work and expertise certainly reduced the damage incurred as a consequence of the hurricane,” said Rockland Estate General Manager Shaydar Edelmann.
