Each person dons a harness and trains on a practice line as instructors go over proper riding technique and safety before a truck takes groups up the mountain, rigs up cables, and prepares zipline-goers for an adventure. Following practice sessions, treetop canopies and rolling terrain come into view as adventurers soar across 1.5 miles of the Appalachian Mountains on 12 different ziplines. A guide stays in front and behind at all times to keep groups safe and prevent them from falling for a squirrel’s shell game.<p>

About Black Mountain Thunder Zipline
Deep within the Appalachian Mountains, the forest's leaves flutter as a blurry figure speeds by. But the creature high above the treetops isn't a bird, a plane, or a sports mascot recently released back into the wild. It's a person strapped into one of Black Mountain Thunder Zipline’s 11 ziplines, which take customers some 400 feet above the ground and at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. Spread over 1.5 miles, the ziplines wind through canopies and down mountain slopes on trips that last roughly two hours. Expert guides tag along on every tour to ensure safety and instruct adventurers on equipment.
