The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with this Groupon.
$19 for a 60-Minute Swinging Bridge Adventure for Two ($39.90 Value)
The Bridge to Prosperity, the longest swinging bridge in America, sways slightly in the wind as intrepid adventurers traverse its 400-foot length. Anchored with more than 30 tons of concrete at both ends, the thrilling-but-safe bridge boasts a weight capacity of 24,000 pounds. After crossing over Dunn’s Gorge and landing at Prosperity Mountain, guests meander across a 30-foot bridge over Lost Mine Falls and watch the gushing water from between the suspended wooden slats. Children younger than 8 years old can come along for free.
Foxfire Mountain Adventures
Foxfire Mountain Adventures introduces guests to the exhilarating heights of Foxfire Mountain with a zip-line course, swinging bridges, and on-ground safari tours. Built in accordance with certified engineers’ ACCT safety standards, the seven-line zip-line course careens through the breathtaking canopy on 60-foot to 1,500-foot lengths at a time. The territory’s swinging bridges sway gently over gorges and waterfalls, each cemented into the mountain and carefully inspected each morning so visitors can appreciate the greenery and the water rushing below in complete safety. For a greater traversal of the park’s 150 acres of wilderness, land dwellers can take a trip in an all-terrain Bear Crawler, an open air vehicle able to scale mountains, cross creeks, and transform into a baby bear to escape detection.
