Riding a zipline grants you the power of flight easier than piecing together your own wings or disguising yourself as a field mouse and waiting for a hawk to grab you. Take to the skies with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a guided zipline tour at Dagaz Acres in Rising Sun, Indiana (a $70 value).
Dagaz Acres provides a state-of-the-art zipline course that offers individuals and groups a bird’s-eye view of rugged wilderness, as well as shorter lines than the recent big game in Indianapolis. After stepping into a comfortable and secure body harness and receiving helpful instruction from the experienced, safety-minded staff, customers of all physical skill levels fly along a zipline course that glides through 23 acres and takes two hours to completely traverse. Soar high above the forest floor like a monkey toting a grappling gun while soaking in stunning views, scanning the terrain for local wildlife, and de-stressing amid the striking valleys and ravines of southeastern Indiana. Check out videos of the heart-pumping experience here, and check out the FAQ section for more information before browsing the schedule to book a tour.
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.
