If your idea of an adrenaline rush is doubling up on cortaditos, it may be time to get out there and live a little.

A new zipline adventure park on Watson Island will give cubicle drones the chance to channel their inner Tarzans/Janes.

Treetop Trekking Miami, which spans six acres, includes three “exhilarating” courses — Explorer, Thrill Seeker and Discovery — color-coded based on difficulty level and height, the most peewee being three feet off the ground, the highest 55 feet.

The owners’ goals are to get you out of your comfort zone.

“We harmonize with nature so people can feel inspired and enjoy transformative experiences that heighten all the senses,” said Jean-François Couture, chief marketing officer of The Trekking Group. “After completing one of our adventure courses, you will have accomplished something, pushed your limits, and become a new version of yourself.

Ah, yes, nature. One of the main reasons you still live in this hurricane-prone subtropical city (right?!).

While on your breathless journey, you’ll not only get a bird’s eye of lush Biscayne Bay, our gleaming skyline, famed beaches as well as critters galore at Jungle Island below.

“You’ll leave with a very different perspective of Miami,” promises Couture.
