$15 for a 60-Minute Swinging Bridge Adventure for Two ($29.90 Value)
The Bridge to Prosperity, the longest swinging bridge in America, sways slightly in the wind as intrepid adventurers traverse its 400-foot length. Anchored with more than 90 tons of concrete, the thrilling-but-safe bridge boasts a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds. After crossing over Dunn’s Gorge and landing at Prosperity Mountain, guests meander across a 30-foot bridge over Lost Mine Falls and watch the gushing water from between the suspended wooden slats. Children younger than 8 years old can come along for free.
Foxfire Mountain Adventures
Foxfire Mountain Adventures introduces guests to the exhilarating heights of Foxfire Mountain with a zip-line course, swinging bridges, and on-ground safari tours. Built in accordance with certified engineers’ ACCT safety standards, the seven-line zip-line course careens through the breathtaking canopy on 60-foot to 1,500-foot lengths at a time. The territory’s swinging bridges sway gently over gorges and waterfalls, each cemented into the mountain and carefully inspected each morning so visitors can appreciate the greenery and the water rushing below in complete safety. For a greater traversal of the park’s 150 acres of wilderness, land dwellers can take a trip in an all-terrain Bear Crawler, an open air vehicle able to scale mountains, cross creeks, and transform into a baby bear to escape detection.

“I am thinking this was the off season we went between Christmas and New Years but I have to say it was kind of different. I am willing to be adventuress so I will try these places but the average person might think it was a bust. You really need to visit here in the Summer season because this place is definitely a summer time place. Zip line/hiking/the bridge everything there would be better done in the warm weather. I would only recommend this in the summer/early fall. Was a little expensive for the adventure level.”
“Beautiful place, will go back”
