Gulf Adventure Center Has Plans To Re-open at The Wharf
One of the Alabama Gulf Coast’s most popular attractions has found a new home. Gulf Adventure Center reached an agreement to relocate their zipline course.
The new location will be at The Wharf in Orange Beach, subject to final approvals and permitting.
Gulf Adventure Center Managing Partner Tom Schlinkert said,
Our planning with management at The Wharf is going very well. They’ve got a fantastic property, great infrastructure, established traffic and a sharp business development team.

After non-renewal of their lease at Gulf State Park in Gulf Shores, Ala., GAC was forced to close in the beginning of October 2016. According to the master plan for Gulf State Park, Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources plans to use the land that GAC formerly occupied for a parking lot and elevated pedestrian walkway over Alabama Highway 182, providing access to the new Gulf State Park Lodge.
With contract renewal off the table, GAC Managing Partner Tom Schlinkert began searching for a new location.
Schlinkert believes The Wharf provides an ideal location and says the GAC team is excited about creating a new course for visitors to enjoy there.
“We’re looking forward to bringing new activities to The Wharf and attracting new customers to the complex,” he said. “Once plans are complete, GAC will reveal details for the new course and expansions to the business.”
The target launch date for the new location is spring of 2017.
