Forests are enchanted places where planted acorns grow into majestic jungle gyms and leaves transform into waterbeds when they hit the ground. Get acquainted with nature’s magic with today's Groupon: for $36, you get a canopy zip-line tour and an action photograph at Mammoth Cave Adventures in Cave City (an $88.30 value).
Mammoth Cave Adventures operates canopy zip-line tours (a $58.30 value) on a verdant, 60-acre plot of land adjacent to Mammoth Cave National Park, where five separate lines and two sky bridges cut through the emerald canopy. Seasoned guides educate treetop travelers on the surrounding flora and fauna they'll pass as they soar over the leafy rooftop like birds attached to safety harnesses.
With this Groupon, each arboreal sightseer receives an action photo of his or her trip down the cable, serving as an ideal keepsake or a show of solidarity with oft-marginalized winged models (a $30 value). Mammoth Cave Adventures' equipment is checked for safety daily and exceeds industry standards. All visitors must sign a waiver and be subject to gravity.
Mammoth Cave Adventures
Treetops sway gently as birds flutter over their branches, breezes waft around their trunks, and humans careen between them at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Mammoth Cave Adventures' series of seven ziplines across two courses trail from tree to tree, each line standing slightly higher than the last as visitors decked out in helmets and harnesses speed across the cables, teeter over two skybridges, and perch on platforms between each lofty tier. Seasoned guides lead the 90-minute excursions as they spout environmental and historical trivia about the rolling hills and dense forest of the 60-acre course, which is located just outside of Mammoth Cave National Park.
The company also puts cables to exhilarating use with a Giant Super Swing, which plummets strapped-in visitors from the top of two towering hickory trees into a free-falling arc that swings 40 feet above the ground. Its new Drop Tower allows guests to experience the scenic view of Mammoth Cave National Park while dangling 70 death-defying feet above the ground. For slower-paced adventures, a stable of gentle equines ferries guests along serene trails and countryside vistas during hourlong horseback rides, which are designed for all equestrians regardless of their skill level or the number of sugar cubes in their pockets.
