Though it prohibits us from bench-pressing cars, gravity is the best thing for getting water out of the sky and the only thing keeping football stadiums from floating away. Resist it with this Groupon.

As fall approaches, the leaves of the Carolina forest canopy turn brilliant hues of red and yellow. Autumnal zipline tours whisk visitors through the colorful foliage and—weather permitting—culminate in a draught of hot cider beside a crackling bonfire.
To prepare for the tour, aspiring cable riders 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, reaching speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.
Children ages 3-12 can catch a ride for the low price of $40 and tickets can be purchased on location.

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.
