Whip up an adrenaline-infused cocktail with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 60-minute haunted zipline canopy tour at Max Zipline in Provo Canyon (a $79 value). Haunted zipline tours run from 7 p.m. to midnight on October 20–22, October 24, October 27–29, and October 31.
Throughout the year, Max Zipline's expert guides send guests careening through forest canopies to treat them to the type of heart-pumping experience normally reserved for thrill-seeking spiders. During haunting season, the zipline-equipped hills of Bear Canyon host a higher than average number of paranormal nature enthusiasts waiting to strike fear into the hearts of every visitor that dares to venture on the after-dark excursion. Thrill seekers don protective gear to explore the frightening foliage, speeding along a series of five separate lines, while stopping to admire moonlit mountain vistas along the way. After an hour of swiftly zipping just out of Frankenstein's reach, visitors can convene for complimentary hot chocolate and to swap spine-tingling tales about the zombies and dead leaves that roam the wooded wilderness.
