Most animals commute by zipping through an intricate net of tree canopies to bypass the forest floor, which is littered with hungry, free-roaming children. Survive like an animal with today's deal: for $40, you get a guided zip-line tour at Dagaz Acres Leadership Center and Zipline Adventure Course, located in Southeastern Indiana about 90 minutes from Louisville (a $70 value). The zip-line course doesn't open for the season until March 1, but Dagaz Acres is accepting reservations now.
Dagaz Acres provides a state-of-the-art zip-line course that offers a bird’s-eye view of rugged wilderness. After stepping into a comfortable and secure body harness and receiving helpful instruction from the experienced and safety-minded staff, customers will fly along a zip-line course that glides through 23 acres and takes between 1.5 and two hours to traverse. Soar high above the forest floor like a monkey toting a grappling gun while soaking in stunning views. Scan the terrain for local wildlife and de-stress while gazing into the striking valleys and ravines of Southeastern Indiana. Check out videos of the heart-pumping experience here. See the FAQ for more information.
Participants must be at least 8 years old, weigh between 30 and 250 pounds, and have a maximum waist size of 44 inches in order to use zip lines.

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.
