Canopy Tour Zip Lines Adventure

Canopy Tour and Zip Lines Adventure

Our day on the canopy tour, zip lines, and adventure challenges begins with a few lessons at ‘ground school’ where our expert guides will show us the ‘ropes’.  Our guides will lead our group throughout the day, coaching us and ensuring our safety.  Next we will board the chair lift for our scenic ride to the top of the mountain and then the fun begins.  The canopy tour is designed to provide a constant thrill and challenge. 

Think of this adventure as a series of rope challenges, rappels and climbs separated by world class exciting ziplines.  As we make our way through the approximately 3½ - 4 hour course, you will be given many options as to how to complete each challenge (there are easier or more challenging ways to conquer each obstacle – you decide!). 
To start with you will scramble through some granite boulders and climb up to the first platform.  From this point on, you will be clipped into the safety system – safety is the first priority at this facility as the course was constructed to exceed all ACCT safety and quality standards.  From this platform you will begin your descent down three zip lines of increasing speed and intensity. 

At this point you are up nearly fifty feet off the ground standing on a platform surrounding a giant tulip poplar nearly four feet in diameter.  It is from this platform that your first challenge begins as you will cross the sixty-five foot Burma Bridge.  The course continues with a series of rappels, cargo net climbs, zip lines and other obstacles that will get your adrenaline flowing and heart racing.  You will be confronted with the No Hands Bridge of Doom, the Vine Traverse Bridge, Tyrolean Bridge, Rock Climbing Tower, and others challenges to name a few. 

There are 8 zip lines in total including the 280 foot Thread the Needle zip and the 340 foot Tower zip – you will reach speeds of over 45 MPH!  Once back on terra firma, we will remove our helmets, do a victory dance and celebrate this tree top experience with the other members of our group – bonus points for best dance!  Lastly, we will enjoy a nice picnic lunch alfresco afterwards and recap our accomplishments and maybe even embellish them just a little.
