Being suspended from a cable is an experience usually afforded only to window washers and to the custodians who have to repaint Mount Rushmore “rock color” every year. Dare to dangle with this Groupon.
- $34 for the Aerial Zipline and Obstacle Experience for one ($65 value)
The Zipline and Aerial Obstacle Experience is a 60-90 minute activity consisting of 14 zipline runs. Beginning with the 40 mph, 600ft long Double Dare, the course includes an aerial obstacle course with swinging bridges, a tight rope walk, a suspended pole walk, and a swing-to-swing obstacle followed by a series of ziplines through the trees. Includes an instructional session and training lines for an additional learning experience.
Customers may add the Dare Ya! ride for an additional fee.
The thrilling courses at Daredevil Ziplines were originally built for the adrenaline junkies on the finale of the action series The Controller: Medal of Honor Warfighter. Happy shrieks now spiral out from members of the general public as they hit the 50 mile-per-hour speeds experienced by the stars of the show. The Dare Ya! ride whisks participants downhill for 600 feet before being stopped abruptly on the bungee braking system, which then sends them whipping out over a lake and stopping gently. They then glide down among sweet-smelling pine boughs and make a soft landing.
The Aerial Challenge combines a zipline with an aerial obstacle course, including a suspended log walk, ladders, a swinging bridge and platform, and rope walks. Riders can end the challenge with a short walk to a bridge overlooking the Tuck spring, which flows from the roots of a century old oak tree. Streams babble above and below the ground, carving the limestone into organic-looking curlicues covered with moss and ferns like somebody who won’t get off the Jurassic Park ride.
