Getting out of the house is often hampered by the fact that most houses are located inside a bigger and fancier house. Step outside the house outside your house with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four zipline rides at GrandView CampResort & Cottages in Moodus (a $40 value).
At GrandView CampResort & Cottages, a staff certified by the Association for Challenge Course Technology fastens thrill seekers in for four brisk zipline rides. During each pass, patrons glide more than 300 feet through the air, admiring the surrounding hills from a cinematic vantage while determining the best place to build a nest. Riders can relive the experience up to four times or split the thrills with friends, family members, or the rest of their Beatles tribute band. After high-flying adventures, customers can recount or outright exaggerate at the camp store, where beverages are available for purchase.
GrandView CampResort & Cottages
Lush tree cover, rolling hills, and lakes dot the landscape surrounding the Connecticut River that GrandView CampResort & Cottages calls home. With this nearly untouched terrain as the backdrop, guests camp along 22.5 acres of wooded hills in their own tent or a deluxe cottage that can accommodate a family of five. Nearby, they can take in whizzing views of the countryside from the 300-foot zipline or take their time while strolling their way through the onsite golf course. When not lounging by the pool or playing horseshoes next to horses playing humanshoes, guests venture to one of more than 20 nearby attractions such as Gillette Castle State Park or the historical Mystic Seaport. Back at the campsite, kids keep their hands busy with scheduled kids' crafts and their faces sticky during pie-eating contests.:m]]
