Ziplining is an exhilarating way to enjoy aerial views of nature without sucking on a helium tank until you get really big and drift away. Float above treetops with this Groupon.
$40 for a Guided Zipline Tour ($70 Value)
Zipliners reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour as they plunge down the course's two zipline segments and safely cross precarious swinging bridges while snug in a half-body swing harness. Participants begin their adventure with basic zipline instruction from their guide, who leads them through each step of the course from initial tree ascent to the final bridge crossing.
The zipline is not open until March 1, 2013.
Amid leafy branches and between gently swaying trees, Tarzan impersonators soar through the air. Dagaz Acres' eco-adventure zipline course lets children, adults, and adult-size children explore woodland canopies up to 70 feet high, and staff ensures that participants glide snugly in their half-body swing harnesses. Adventurers plunge through seven dual ziplines strung over 23 acres of ground and ravines, three canopy-level ziplines, and two bridges. One bridge is a Burma bridge built with varying types of rope, and the other is a plank construction pirate bridge that stretches 90 feet and swings over a ravine to discourage motorcycle-chase sequences.
Dagaz Acres' staff members spread their love of outdoors learning to team-building and leadership exercises held in single-day and overnight programs. They train athletic teams and office groups through ground exercises and on a low-challenge ropes course, which allows participants to engage in physical challenges without the added risk of a bird nesting in their hair. The company reflects this passion in its name, Dagaz, which is derived from a Nordic rune meaning "transformational breakthrough change." Staffers enable others to change through adventure as they design, build, and maintain zipline and ropes courses elsewhere through Dagaz Acres Management Inc. construction division.
