Ziplining is an exhilarating way to enjoy aerial views of nature without sucking on a helium tank until you get really big and drift away. Float above treetops with this Groupon.
$79 for a Zipline Excursion for Two ($158 Value)
After an ATV ride through the wilderness, groups arrive at the zipline zone for a brief orientation and equipment demo. After ground school, two canopy guides lead groups of up to 10 through nine different zip lines, spanning more than one mile of cable across 140 acres of land. At elevations of up to 300 feet, visitors careen through the canopy while marveling at the surrounding mountain scenery. Groups also traverse a swinging bridge, jump from cliffs, and take the “leap of faith.”
This trip includes all equipment, including a full-body harness, helmet, trolley, and gloves. For an additional $10, guests can enjoy a lunch provided by The Gamekeeper restaurant.
Sky Valley Zip Tours
Sprawled across 140 acres of mountainous backcountry, more than one mile of steel cable suspends from the trees, forming ten zipline tracks that glide throughout the canopy. On the ground below, a swinging bridge spans the mountainside, and a cliff jump offers an immediate path to the terrain below. To some, this sounds like the set of an action movie, but it’s actually the zipline course at Sky Valley Zip Tours, and it’s open to the public.
The guides at Sky Valley Zip Tours offer outdoor adventures that introduce guests to the thrill of ziplining while also learning about the local flora and fauna. They cap groups at 10 people, led by at least two guides who expertly navigate the tracks, which were professionally designed, constructed, and made safe by Challenge Design Innovations. Trips include all equipment, including helmets, harnesses, and translators to communicate with feral tightrope walkers.
