Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours soaring through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $44, you get a 2.5-hour Coach Class Tour with Kersey Valley Zipline in High Point (an $89 value). The AACT-certified instructors at Kersey Valley Zipline guide groups of up to seven participants through an aviation-themed zipline course that winds through lush woods. During the 2.5-hour Coach Class Tour, air navigators clad in harnesses, helmets, and Tarzan suits cover 1.5 miles of engineer-designed cable while swinging 40–100 feet above ground between 10 sky decks, each named after an airport city code. Zipliners are encouraged to bring their own cameras; venue-snapped, for-purchase photos of flights and free low-res downloads will be available after tours. After scheduling a reservation, Groupon-holders can call Kersey Valley Zipline to upgrade to the longer First Class tour for an additional $24.
Kersey Valley offers a range of family fun for everyone. Its laser tag course plunges competitors into military-style battles on outdoor battlefields. Lasers modeled after MP5 submachine guns fire over 1,000 feet with instant feedback on hits and stats. The zipline adventure tours prove equally thrilling for Kersey Valley visitors, who glide through the skies across 14 legs of sail-ways that stretch between 200 and 800 feet per leg. Some first-time riders prefer to stretch their aerial time to the max by zipping more than 800 feet long in one run. Those who prefer to keep their amusements more grounded may challenge themselves with themed escape rooms or frolic through seasonal, family-themed adventures, including the Maize Adventure and the Kersey Valley Spookywoods.
