The zip line has its origins in prehistory, when cavemen would take to a network of cables and harnesses to dry out clothes left soaking-wet after dips in the community tar pit. Similarly breeze through the wild blue yonder with today's deal: for $20, you get an individual admission to the two-hour zip-line tour at DFW Adventure Park (a $45 value) in Roanoke. This Groupon is good for a single purchase; purchase multiples to book a group of up to 15 people. Tours zip off Friday–Sunday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.
Part scavenger hunt, part elevated escape, the zip-line tour takes teambuilding to the next altitude. Zippers will clip on to four terrain-traversing zip lines spanning hundreds of feet over land and water, with the option to spin or slide upside-down as they sling along the cable. Feel the thrill known only to cable cars and avant-garde tightrope walkers as you zoom down the zip line over Devil's Gorge, or ponder what life would be like as a bead on a necklace while you ride over winding creeks and treetops.
To up the experience, DFW Adventure Park's staffers guide zip liners through a gauntlet of challenging puzzles designed to test teamwork, mental quickness, and the uninhibited ability to take risks and embrace the unknown. Because this tour encompasses many elements, the park recommends booking groups such as sports teams, coworker cliques, or familial pods. Call for reservations (required).
DFW Adventure Park does not yet have many reviews on its zip-line tours, but PBReviewers really enjoy their paintball facilities:
DFW Adventure Park
The guides at DFWAP Adventures lead treks throughout DFW Adventure Park's 176 acres, where families, church groups, and coworkers rely upon communication and teamwork to conquer challenges ranging from paintball scenarios to scavenger hunts through the wilderness. Colleagues trade in their eight-hour workday for corporate boot camp on the challenge course by tackling conflict resolution and dealing with stress. Emergency Services trainees can practice through wilderness search and vertical rescue, as well as tactical medic scenarios. Groups can also plan a multi-venue event combining paintball, a wilderness challenge course, obstacle race, and ziplines for a full day adventure.
