$59 for The Beanstalk Journey for Two (Up to $118 Value)

Adventure-seekers glide, climb, and play freely on a combination zipline network and ropes course, where bridges, nets, and ziplines connect treehouse stations to one another. Each treehouse provides a break in the action and offers educational tidbits on a specific nature topic. Reaching as high as 50 feet above the ground, these perches also grant panoramic views of the surrounding forest. Staff members outfit guests with a body harness and helmets for safety.

Though The Beanstalk Journey at Catawba Meadows sometimes features different prices for reservations versus walkup clients, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

The Beanstalk Journey

The treetops are traditionally the playground of winged beasts and tiny, furry climbers. So it's not unnatural to do a double take upon seeing humans flying from tree to tree—at heights of up to 50 feet—with all the grace of a forest native. Today, 15 treehouses peek through the leaves of the sprawling wooded area, serving as resting points and educational outposts for visitors soaring on ziplines. The Beanstalk Journey at Catawba Meadows came to fruition to fulfill its builders’ goal of providing fun and physical activities for families to enjoy. Now the park is open year-round, supplying adrenaline-pumping recreation to all who seek it.

Like veins coursing through the forest, swinging rope bridges and covered rope tunnels run through the foliage alongside ziplines of varying difficulty levels, enabling visitors to soar from tree to tree and finally assuage any regrets about not being born with hollow bird bones. For an extra challenge, the 32-foot beanstalk climbing tower and a massive multidirectional climbing web put upper- and lower-body strength to the test, and educational stations at each treehouse challenge minds with lessons on nature and local history. In addition to the standard attractions, outings can also be catered to visitors with special needs.

Combining the park's adventure opportunities with educational pursuits, the staff occasionally runs an adventure-photography workshop, nighttime zipline tours, and Birds of Prey Journeys. Continuing the mission to foster outdoor education and physical activity, the beanstalk's building team continuously erects new courses at other locales, ensuring that all are family friendly and none require hand braking.
