With today's side deal: for $64, you get a five-hour, 14-zip line Ultimate Zip Adventure (a $129 value) at Adventures Unlimited, located three hours west of Tallahassee. Equipment and instruction are included.
The zip line guides at Adventures Unlimited helm airborne sightseeing excursions through the longleaf pine-populated Blackwater River State Forest. After hiking a quarter mile through topographically diverse terrain, adventurers scale stairs to the start tower and launch into the open air, where continuous forward movements finally confirm all paparazzi-fueled rumors about gravity. Zip liners can take in the dizzying sequence of sights as they fly over Wolfe Creek. Forgotten feet get in on the adventure as they traipse across two sky bridges, which double as two-way portals to the Great Wall of China.
Although Adventures Unlimited offers a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Since its humble beginnings on Tomahawk Landing in the '70s, Adventures Unlimited has been reconnecting city dwellers and outdoors enthusiasts to the natural world through paddle-powered river trips, exhilarating ziplining flights, and team-building challenge courses. Its staff of nature lovers young and old find their niche in the lush woodlands surrounding Coldwater Creek, with its robust ecosystem of hawks, turtles, and fish, as well as sasquatches disguised as hawks, turtles, and fish. When adventurers tucker themselves out with day trips into the wild, they can settle in for a long haul at Adventures Unlimited's selection of cabins and campgrounds.
