- $49 for a two-hour zipline canopy tour (up to $100 value)
Clients can choose from standard daytime tours or twilight tours. To prepare for the tour, aspiring cable riders aged 3 and up take in a safety orientation on a low-hanging zipline that safely acquaints novices with the feel and techniques of flight. One by one, riders step into midair to zoom to the next platform along a suspended wire set 20–80 feet above the ground. After traversing more than 10 platforms, riders soar across a mammoth 1,000-foot stretch of cable. Tours may also include a hayride, bonfire, and cider presented by Twilight Tours on weekends in October and November weather permitting.
Children aged 3–12 can catch a ride for a low price, and tickets can be purchased on location. Those who wish to spend a weekend in the area may want to check out activities and lodging at nearby Hanging Rock State Park, which was featured in USA Today as one of the country’s 20 most stunning state parks.
Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour
Standing on a platform, eco-tourists pause to admire the view before stepping from their perch to soar across a high wire and admire the complex ecosystem of animals, plants, and Swiss Family Robinsons that lives in the scenic canopy. This moment—both tranquil and adrenaline-filled—occurs every day at Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tours, where experienced guides lead safely harnessed visitors on excursions through the verdant treetops of the Carolina forests nestled in the shadow of Pilot Mountain, near Hanging Rock State Park. The zipline course weaves from platform to platform, culminating in a 1,000-foot-long uninterrupted soar. After tours, guests can linger to have a picnic on the historic grounds, enjoy a bonfire when the weather’s cool, or even stay overnight in a cozy inn.
