America has always been the most extreme country, from the Boston Tea Punchings to having the first man swear on the moon. We hold this shredding guitar solo to be self-evident with today's Groupon: for $72, you get a zip-lining adventure at Full Blast Adventure Center in Durango, Colorado (up to a $145 value). Zip-line tours are safe for ages 4 and up, though toddlers may need parents’ help to sign the safety waiver.
During Full Blast Adventure Center's zip-line canopy tour, flightless bipeds ascend branchward for six separate flights on a network of stout cables suspended high above the forest floor. After shattering nature’s tranquility with exhilarated whoops and ululations, both the thrill-thirsty and the nature-loving alight on platforms built high up in the canopy, where they'll bask in stunning views of the surrounding mountains and endure a friendly roast from wisecracking squirrels. Accompanying you throughout the tour is an experienced zip-naturalist armed from the annals of local lore who readily identifies area flora, fauna, and fungi while directing eager eyes toward points of historic interest. Perfect for an exciting first date or quickly cooling a tureen of soup, zip-line tours typically last two to three hours. Full Blast Adventure Center supplies all equipment.
Full Blast Adventure Center offers a discount to Durango/La Plata county residents on Mondays, but this Groupon still provides the best deal for everyone.
